A CNN sur­vey of 50 TOP JOBS con­cluded that Tech­ni­cal Writ­ing is one of the best jobs in Amer­ica today — 28th best job, to be exact.

What’s more than that, the CNN sur­vey also con­cluded that, in terms of “Qual­ity of Life” and low-stress work­ing con­di­tions, Tech­ni­cal Writ­ing ranks 5th in the USA.


Tech­ni­cal Writ­ers make a median of $67,400 a year, with a top aver­age salary of $99,600, accord­ing to CNN.

The num­ber of tech­ni­cal writ­ing jobs in the USA (cur­rently 84,000) is expected to increase by 20% in the 2006–2016 period.

So it seems like we’re up and run­ning towards a hope­ful future. Once this reces­sion is over I’m sure things will look much bet­ter for all tech­ni­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tors as the new expan­sion and the pent-up demand for all kinds of prod­ucts and ser­vices will whip up the demand for com­mu­ni­ca­tion, infor­ma­tion design and doc­u­men­ta­tion to new levels.
