Jobs in Almost Every Industry No matter which industry you're considering for a career, it probably employs technical communicators. Technical communicators work in IT, computer science, Engineering, medicine, environmental studies, electronics, Government, Media, Publishing, the aerospace industry, and just about any field in which people must interpret and use technology. They are an indispensable part of today's technological society.
WHERE CAN THIS JOB LEAD?
Technical Writers can advance to Information Designer, Senior Technical
Writer, or Project Manager positions. In larger organizations, Technical Writers can advance to
Information Designer, Senior Technical Writer, or Project Manager
Positions and even System Architect. Promotion often takes the
form of increased responsibility and pay rises.
Technical Writer is the most commonly used job title for this
occupation. Other titles used include Communications Specialist, Policy and Procedure Writer,
Proposal Writer, Publications Specialist, Documentation Specialist, Information
Developer, Technical Editor, Web Editor, and Information Designer.
Future trend /market trend
The high tech market is booming (usually!) and demand-driven by the computer industry--for technical communicators is very high.
In fact there is actually a shortage of technical writers in the United States, India and Canada, and is rapidly turning that way in other countries. Thus, employers are open to recruit entry-level writers who wish to break into the field.
Thus, technical writing is one of the best paying jobs for those who wish to use their writing talents.
The booming market for technical writers should parallel the continuing mushrooming growth of the computer, telecommunications and other high tech industries. Thus, there should be some measure of job security or at least the ability to find another job quickly should you be laid off.
There is acute shortage of more than 50% of trained technical writers in indian markets.

I completed a certification program in Technical Writing from Techtotal Systems. They followed a systematic approach in training, including both theoretical & practical aspects of Technical Writing. The immense support and guidance offered by them was instrumental in me securing the job of a Technical Writer at Convergys. The support they have offered even after the completion of the success is worth mentioning and to this day I can get in touch with them for any help that I might need in the professional domain.
The timely response from instructors, online access to portal and the tutorials are the differentiating factors from other conventional institutes,
Thanks a lot to Techtotal and Mr. Shravan for your help.
I had prior experience in teaching, courseware designing and content creation before enrolling in Techtotal. The course enabled me to acquire the much needed exposure for entering the e-learning industry within a short span of time, say one month! I secured a position as Instructional Designer in a reputed e-learning company upon successful completion of the course. My heartfelt thanks to the entire team of Techtotal and Mr. Shravan, especially for the guidance and motivation provide to me throughout my stint at the institute. I recommend this course to all aspirants who wish to build a career for themselves in the e-learning industry. All the best.
Wishing you a very happy new year!
Yes this has turned to be a really happy new year for me since I could crack the interview and land up in a job as an instructional designer in ELC, a reputed e-learning company based in Singapore. I feel extremely fortunate in securing a job in the very first interview
I express my immense gratitude to the whole creative and helpful team of Techtotal for the assistance provided for the entire duration of Instructional Designing course. Please send me the link where I can pen my testimonial for this remarkable institute of learning.
I vividly remember the day when I made my way into a narrow lane on a hot Monday afternoon to enquire regarding the instructional designing course. I entered a tall building christened Tech Total beaming in bright orange color which was an easy eye catcher. My desire to learn ID has reached its logical conclusion, in that Techtotal strengthened my vision and enhanced my skills and knowledge. This has empowered me to develop as a competent individual and a content developer with skills ranging from storyboarding to drafting thesis. The quest for creativity and knowledge has been satiated and my overall experience in Techtotal is marvelous and scintillating.

I found the course pertaining to Instructional Design very interesting and apt for the evolving times as many firms are vying to gain a foothold in the domain of e-learning. The topics are systematically designed and logically structured and the know-how dovetailed for identification and management of opportunities in the market is highly useful.
The accessibility of trainers for immediate clarification of doubts and the convenience of online sessions imparted effectiveness and professionalism for creative learning. Since I had a tight schedule, customized modules and flexible timings offered by Techtotal was path breaking. I take pleasure in recommending this course to aspirants for content development, technical writing and instructional designing and those who intend to achieve high success in their career.
When my friend initially referred Techtotal I dismissed it as another conventional place with no sound base but I was spell bound with the professional approach of the staff at the institute. Techtotal offers the best training one can ever think of in the domain of Technical writing and Instructional Designing. Moreover they not only impart training but focus on the holistic development of an individual. Eventually I, my friend and other friends in our sphere of influence have benefited immensely and take pride in the fact that we are products of Techtotal. I’m sure that this endeavor of Techtotal in creating high-end professionals will continue in the coming years and I wish them all the best.
The inadequacy of professionals and huge demand in this field has provoked TechTotal to take an extra mile in the field of training and consulting. We have launched training and placement methodology as a part of creating awareness in technical writing and to set standards for meeting industry requirements. There is no such kind of placement cell, which would ensure a bright and long lasting career in the field of information engineering. Training activities are undertaken by the professionals who have years of experience and vast expertise in different domains of technical writing. As a result of our innovative methodology in this domain, we have outshined in technical writing and encouraged professionals in taking Technical Writing as exigent career option.
Our industry experience enables us to design training programs and direct the learner’s experience to match the skill requirements of companies.
