Often, a first-timer has some writing credits, just not any in tech-writing. They may also have had a position where they had to set their own priorities in the past. In these situations, any risk in hiring a first-timer is minimal.

Also, if a company is set up so that everybody sets their own everyday working priorities - a very common situation in small companies - naturally the writer would be expected to do the same.
