A Handy Tutorial On How To Find Technical Writing Jobs


Finding work in the writing industry is a pretty big problem these days. There are many talented and great writers out there that you will never hear about, simply they are usually not given a chance to express themselves. Finding a technical writing job, it's going to be a pretty easy task, depending on your skill level. If you know you are good at what you do, it's only a matter of time before you hit the jackpot.

  1. Websites. There are multiple websites that offer writing jobs, so you can start by checking a few. Try to see some feedback about the websites as well, to see if they are being recognized by other writers and employers as well as some good ones. If you find such a websites, make an account ( you usually have to, although it's not obligatory ) and then apply for the jobs you think you are good at. There are even people who want whole technical books, and if you have the time and skills to do it, you can get some nice money out of it, besides the experience, which brings me to my second point.
  2. Experience. At first you should try to aim for some low paying and low difficulty job, simply because you will not have enough positive feedback for such a big job. You have to get people to trust you, and by doing some jobs and showing that you are a professional and you don't mess around with the employers money and time, you will be able to be more trustworthy to future employers who will give you more difficult jobs, who pay more as well. Try to think about this, and take this gradually.
  3. Local newspapers and magazines. There are many newspapers or magazines or any other form of written information that need new people to fill in spots, simply because you are good at it. You should try and see if any of these agencies require your services, even if it's for 2 3 articles, or for a 200 300. It will give you personal experience, and some money in the process, so it's a win-win situation anyway. The only important thing you should keep in mind is that you will never be able to shoot and reach the moon on the first time, you need patience, but once you obtain it, you will see how things are going to work out.
