Seth queried:

What more would you recommend? Are there certifications, licenses, degrees, or simply more official work experience that I must first have?


Change the objective on your resume.

I took a technical writing course many years ago and the instructor offered to look at resumes. She spent a few moments with each of us, and when it was my turn, offered that same advice.

She told me I'd been doing the work, but just did not have the title. I changed my objective, got a job as a proposal analyst, and then many more tech writing jobs followed.

My work experience showed I had the tools I needed to begin. So do yours.

Some might tell you to take classes, get certified, find a niche, etc. and that is good advice as well. But it all starts with believing in your own talent.

Just do it.
