When I was gung ho on tech writing, I made it a point to try out every

opportunities to use them for real world purposes. OpenSource
projects, moonlighting contract gigs, etc. help in this regard.

When I'm asked in an interview if I have experience, I indicate that I have taught myself, but have not used it in a work environment. This is never enough for anyone.
