I’m a technical writer!! I got into the field originally by doing a 6-month internship as an ungergrad at Northeastern. I kind of ended up in the field; I started school as an English major and that was the only real writing-related internship I could get! When I graduated college in 2008 I got a job right after as a tech writer and I’ve been there ever since. 

I work for a software company in the health care industry – I write user guides, release notes, online help, white papers, and any other client communications my company needs. 

My work also paid for my master’s degree; in 2012 I received my Master’s in Technical Communications from Northeastern University. Since graduating, I’ve started teaching 3 classes for their online graduate program in technical communications. So, I guess you could say I’m pretty involved in technical writing!

Interesting, I actually have an interview for a technical writing job next week! I have a PhD in neuroscience, so I’ve done a lot of scientific writing, and I have some experience as a paid editor. The job is not related to neuroscience (it’s for a stastitical software company), but it does require statistics knowledge and writing/editing ability. I have been applying for medical writing or scientific writing jobs, but I hadn’t really been looking for anything like this until a recruiter contacted me.
