Sample Technical Writer CV

Posted in Writer Resume Examples

Technical writers are the people behind every television’s manual, a computer’s user guide and other documents in technological gadgets. When writing a Technical Writer CV, it is very essential to list and itemize technical skills such as your ability in using frame maker v7.2, xmlspy, xdocs, X-Metal and HTML. You must also show your deep understanding in using Microsoft Office products such as AutoCAD and Photoshop as you will be required to make illustrations in the manuals. Meanwhile, in filling up the Employment Section, be sure to include technical jobs. These will show that you are not only limited to writing technical descriptions but you can also perform basic technical troubleshooting techniques. A sample of how to write a Technical Writer CV is shown below.
