Qualities Necessary for Success-Technical Writer

The two most impor­tant ques­tions you must ask your­self before

embark­ing on a career in tech­ni­cal writ­ing are, “What kind of person

Tech­To­tal

should I be to suc­ceed in this field?” and “What kind of personality

traits should I have?” Some of the answers are obvi­ous and

are sim­i­lar to traits that make peo­ple suc­cess­ful in any busi­ness or

pro­fes­sion. You should be per­sis­tent and force­ful, but not overbearing,

in seek­ing the infor­ma­tion you need. It goes with­out saying

that you should enjoy writ­ing. You must be a self-starter with a

keen ana­lyt­i­cal mind who is at ease with man­age­ment and can

speak its language.

You also must have the capac­ity to assume respon­si­bil­ity and be

will­ing to learn con­tin­u­ously about your field. The refusal or inability

to stay on top of your job is the quick­est route to unemployment.

Work­ing in the field of tech­ni­cal writ­ing requires con­stant selfimprovement.

This is a highly com­pet­i­tive field, and you will find

that an employer will have lit­tle trou­ble hir­ing your replace­ment if

you don’t pro­duce high-quality work and stay well informed.

To be sure that you have the qual­i­ties you’ll need to suc­ceed, it’s

a good idea to set up a pro­gram of con­stant self-improvement and

stick to it. Here are some of the ways you can accom­plish this.

• Enroll at a local col­lege or good insti­tute for an

advanced degree. [Read the rest of this entry…]
