One of our candidates starts working today – as a technical author at a software company in the Midlands. It’s her first job in, hopefully, a long career as a technical author. She’s had some technical writing experience from the sandwich year on her course, but this is her first permanent writing position.
It’s the second junior technical author we’ve placed there. The first is still with the company, but he has moved into a different role. Her orientation will be carried out, in part, by a contract technical author who will be working there until Christmas.
The first day on your chosen career path – a special day, don’t you think?
