Example of a Technical Writer Resume
Writers hire professional resume writers too! Resume writing is a writing discipline unlike many other forms of writing, and is often described as a combination of business writing and copywriting. This technical writer resume is an example of why that is true. Although he was an accomplished senior technical writer, the resume Thomas Hall had written for himself was four dense pages of text that broke virtually every resume writing best practice. Not surprisingly, his version got him virtually no traction in the job market. Our rewrite, shown below, calls out all of his most impressive qualifications and experience in an easy-to-read format that was highly successful in the job market.
Like every resume we write, this technical writer resume puts a heavy emphasis on the contributions this job seeker has made for past employers, as a way to indicate expected future performance and value add.
But note that we have also used a variety of formatting and design techniques to really call out the functional qualifications and the breadth and depth of experience this person brings to the table. The result is a highly readable, eye-catching, and effective resume.
We know it can be tempting to look for resume examples on the internet, then try to model your own after them. Please don’t! The most effective resumes are a reflection of a person, NOT just a collection of words on a piece of paper. Your resume MUST tell an AUTHENTIC and memorable story that illustrates YOUR brand and the unique promise of value that YOU bring to the workplace.
