Technical Writing - Job Interview Tips

Technical writing is a constantly on demand field of employment and service across the world. The number of technical writers is increasing exponentially, and there is a lot of competition in the market.

Being a technical writer myself, I know that the interview for a technical writer is different from a lot of other interviews. I am going to share with you the five most important things that would help you to get the job.

1. Prepare a brief description of your current job profile/any writing project.

The first question asked by most interviewers is "tell me about your experience/projects and job profile" you need to be prepared to answer this question with confidence. The description should include the following:

 

  • The types of documents you have worked on for example. User guides, Solution Architechture Document, Troubleshooting Guide e.t.c.
  • Method of working i.e. Agile, waterfall e.t.c.
  • skills and tools used for the job i.e. Adobe Technical suite, Office, XML, DITA e.t.c.
  • The best thing you like about your job.

 

2. Prepare for a writing test.

Most of the companies have a writing test for the selection of technical writers. the following things should me kept in mind for the writing test:

 

  • Neat and good handwriting if it is on paper.
  • Grammar and spell check on your documents before submitting if it is an online test.
  • Read through the passages and paragraphs clearly for writing procedures.
  • Take some online grammar tests before the interview.

 

3. Be aware of the writing practices followed by the organization.

It is very important that you understand the job requirements and present yourself in a manner that suits the job. Focus on explaining your skills and how they will be helpful in the job that you applied for.

4. Read some interesting essays and articles before the interview and talk about them if you get a chance.

It is equally important to be strong in written communication as well as verbal communication in a technical writing job. Improve your verbal skills by going through some interesting articles and practice by speaking out.

Don't be afraid to share your views on a particular topic if asked for, there is no harm in disagreeing in a polite manner, it shows that you can take a stand for yourself.

5. Prepare some questions for the interviewer.

You should analyse the job requirements and prepare some questions for the interviewer. It shows that you are interested in the job and keen to be a part of the organization.

If you master these five points for a technical writing interview, no one can stop you from getting the job. Go ahead, take on the interviews with a smile on your face.
