TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I hire many tech writers every year. Over the years, I have only hired a
couple of writers without experience; however, both of them were willing to
do a writing sample to demonstrate what they could do.
I recommend writing up some procedures in Word or FrameMaker about software
or hardware with which you are familiar. Do about five to ten pages. This
number will give you a chance to show off both your procedure-writing and
organizational skills. Be sure to include illustrations (screen grabs or
line art) and format the document as if it were a finished product.
