It’s been a while since we added an article to our Web site (these days we tend to post content to this blog), but we’ve just written one called Selecting the right Technical Author to recruit for your organisation.
The role of the technical author (also known as Technical Writer or Information Developer) is one that many would-be hirers are unfamiliar with.
As it is a specialist profession, it can be difficult for organisations to recruit good technical authors. Firstly, there can be challenges in developing the job description, setting an appropriate salary and finding a suitable recruitment agency. Secondly, there is the challenge of selecting the right candidate from the list of CVs you receive and the people you interview.
