Tips for Writing a Technical Writer Job Description

A technical writer is a professional wordsmith who condenses and simplifies complicated topics, such as artificial intelligence or augmented reality, to create user manuals, online reference documentation, customer service guides for a company’s help desk, and other types of content.

Technical writing requires a deep level of understanding of the topic being covered. Technical writers often have experience as engineers, design and drafting professionals, and other related careers.   Some technical writers, however, can conceptualize information and break it down without having hands-on experience. Neither type is innately better; each has its strengths.

Hello! I am a PhD-trained active academic researcher with industry experience. Additionally, I have an MBA in Finance, an MS in Mathematical Finance, and an MS in Business Administration. I content-edit, revise, and develop novel content for academic manuscripts, dissertations, and theses in various academic disciplines. In addition, I respond to reviewer comments for journal articles in the R&R publication stage. I am a peer-reviewer for top-tier academic journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and the Journal of Financial Economics. Finally, I help students navigate the admissions process to Ph.D., MS, MBA, JD, and Med School programs. PLEASE NOTE: I do not do fixed-rate projects because it is challenging to "guesstimate" the amount of time it takes to make the revisions necessary to elevate a manuscript to the level of quality required to be published or develop a dissertation to meet all committee members' criteria. Each piece of academic writing has unique needs, action plans, and steps to achieve our goals. Lastly, please book a 30-minute consultation if you'd like to discuss your project. We'll discuss specific services I can offer you and how you would benefit from them. We'll draft an action plan together, then get started! The dissertation process is both an intellectual and emotional journey that is immensely stressful. I pride myself on providing academic and emotional support for Ph.D. students throughout the process. To date, I have worked on 61 dissertations. I am always available for my students, work meticulously to pre-emptively reduce committee comments after submission, and respond to committee feedback thoroughly with support from established top-tier literature. In addition, I have had the privilege of working with dozens of students to complete their dissertations and graduate successfully. Being called a "Doctor" is hard work; taking the journey with someone else makes the process much more bearable. I have twelve years of experience editing college essays and letters of intent for students applying to undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. programs. I worked for an elite academic consultancy firm specializing in application materials for Ivy League university admissions, including personal statements and essays. Additionally, I have served as a graduate school's admissions committee member. I provide consulting services for entrepreneurs and small-business owners, such as strategic business planning (including writing plans for funding), quality management initiatives, and M&A due diligence. Before my time in the ivory tower of academia, I spent several years in a boutique M&A firm performing industry and company-specific research, developing pitch materials, and performing firm valuations. I hope to work with you soon!

The key elements of good narrative have remained unchanged for a millennia, but to infuse a contemporary technical topic with character and life is a unique challenge.

My job is to take your technical explanation - be it concerning your latest product release or simply a new method or approach to an industry headache - and create engaging B2B literature that you can be proud of. I am a trained engineer and have a background in business journalism, which allows me to both UNDERSTAND your tech and TELL your tech. Whether you or your organization is seeking a technically minded report, or a thoughtful analysis that integrates policy, economic, and geographical context, my experience in diverse professional fields, and in several distinct regions of the world, make me the best one for your cause.

I am a politics and civil litigation reporter with experience writing in multiple formats including print, digital, long and short form, technical and creative writing. I have a variety of work experience ranging from customer service to communications writing for state agencies. I have excellent experience in the automotive field, manufacturing and technology, and writing for not-for-profit organizations. I received my education through a unique program offered by California State University, Sacramento, where I studied journalism and government. I was trained in all forms of journalism and creative writing. My writing style is flexible and adaptable to my customers desires. The vast amount of work I have done follows AP Style closely. This includes hundreds of articles on complex legislative or litigation based off public record that I write for a general audience. I have done quite a bit of technical writing, such as creating product descriptions for websites using SEO techniques and have experience creating brand messaging and developing communication strategies using print and social media. I have even written cooking blogs and have experience with photojournalism. The skill I possess that makes me a good writer is my ability to research topics quickly and efficiently, identify stakeholders and develop written pieces tailored to the relevant interests. I strive for factual, accurate and correct writing and hold my work to a very high standard. I will not write something that cannot be verified, unless I am writing an opinion piece. Today's journalists often lack the skills to write non-biased articles that are factually accurate, free of opinion and interesting to read. These are skills that were hammered home through my education. Beyond my writing skills, I have worked as a mechanic, manufacturing, database input, customer service and even as a chauffeur. My interests are broad. In my free time, I enjoy restoring classic cars, gardening, cooking and working with my dogs. I spend a lot of time outdoors and always take an opportunity to get outside. I hike, sail and ride skateboards. I am as happy in the desert as at the beach or in the mountains.
