Hi! I have a Technical Writing background. I would like to do work as a Web
Designer. I've been told that a person educated as technical writer can be
employed as a Web Designer. I've been searching for a Web Design position in
New York but have not been lucky enough to land anything. What skills might
a technical writer possess that would enable them to be considered for a web
position? What skills might a technical writer need to acquire before being
considered for a web position?
