(Pardon me for any goofs...this is my first time joining a list like this.)
MY PROBLEM:  I am about to try to hire a "technical writer" but I'm finding that that term is used to identify a wide range of professions/people.  We want our technical writer to produce parts catalogs, installation instruction sheets, price books, specifications, and the like.  I believe the right person should have (1) good writing skills (2) an understanding and interest in engineering/technical matters (3) and some page layout/design expertise.  I think we'd like an entry level person.
MY QUESTION:  Is there some helpful phrase that I can put in our Job Opening Advertisement that will weed out anyone who is overqualified or underqualified?
