Hi Rich,

I think you're on the right track that cybersecurity might be a good field for current and future prospects.

In terms of what fields offer rich opportunities for becoming a subject matter expert -- domain knowledge is a real plus for success in tech writing -- I can't think of anything specific although I would look at the hottest tech areas today such as nanotechnologies and the other industries that get cited a lot.

This is a pretty cool list if you want to get some ideas:

Hope that helps,

Steve

Hi Y'all,

I'm looking a technical areas that may be needing more technical writers in the future, such as cloud-based technologies and security. Does anyone have experience or suggestions on which areas might need more writers now and in the future?

Thanks,
Richard
