Technical Writer Resume Example

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. We have included examples on our website to illustrate the quality and diversity of our work and they are protected by copyright. If you need help writing your resume, it will be our pleasure to assist you.

It is an excellent marketing document. Congratulations! As a marketing executive I couldn't have done better myself!

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the position of Director of Educational and Administrative Technology for the XXXX XXXX XXXX...Feedback from some of the members of the selection committee revealed that they were "blown away" by the resume. Actually, they only had me in for a single interview. This leads me to believe that this particular employer took great credence on the ability of the resume to communicate in my absence. I consider your work very instrumental in both the success of landing the job, and in the ability to successfully assert a salary requirement that is significantly higher for this particular area of the country...You can be sure that you are a permanent part of my electronic rolodex. If anyone ever needs a top-quality resume, you can be sure that your name will be mentioned.

I wanted to give you a heads up. I've passed your name onto a few friends and and her husband may contact you shortly for resume services. also has two girlfriends which may contact you also, but she can fill you in on that when she contacts you. I've also forwarded your information to another of my colleagues here at . Additionally, I've told that I intend to leave and have signed a temporary contract with them through the end of the year. As part of my agreement to "hang around" to allow them to transition stuff over and find a replacement, they've provided executive outplacement services. I'm working with and , my "career coach" may contact you also. He stated that he had never seen such a well phrased resume, and I told him how happy I had been with your services and turnaround. does not have anyone as experienced as you in this area. Regarding my job search. I've received two offers and turned both down. A few other interviews, but nothing I wanted to pursue. I took the summer off the job search and intend to re-enter the market at the end of this week or next with hopes of finding a job no earlier than January or preferably June/July. I have some plans to travel, relax, enjoy life, etc. while I still have no solid ties or obligations. I'll let you know how things go.
