Now that you’ve read about what the Technical Writing process, it’s time to put those concepts to use!
For this worksheet, there are 3 parts.
Part 1: First, imagine you are a technical writer looking for full-time or contract work. Many technical writers use job sites like flexjobs to search for open positions (which you can glance at here: com/jobs/technical-writing” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>https://www.flexjobs.com/jobs/technical-writing) (Links to an external site.). Now, imagine you’re thinking about applying for the job in the below sample posting:
Job Description: Technical Writer for Surgical Glove Manufacturer

|Remote Work Level:||100% Remote|
|Education Level:||Bachelor’s Degree|
|Categories:||Writing, Technical Writing, Medical Grade Sterile Gloves|
Part 2: Next, you’ll complete the below chart in a new document (see an example in section 4 of this week’s reading).
Keep in mind you should be imagining what kind of document this employer needs a technical writer to make, and use the chart to analyze that. In other words, don’t use the chart to analyze the employer, but instead use it to imagine a document they might want you to create.
Also be aware that many of the job postings (such as the above) don’t have a lot of specifics, so you can make educated guesses as to some of the answers as needed.
|What does the RFP that you are responding to request?|
|Describe the organization or individual making the request.|
|How will the organization or individual use the requested document?|
|If the requesting organization will make the document available to others, who are those people and how will they get the document?|
|What kind of document is requested? What is the purpose of the document?|
|What are the characteristics of the target readers of the document (knowledge, background, experience)?|
Part 3: Next, write 2-3 complete paragraphs explaining what benefits you think completing this chart (if any) would have when creating a technical document.
Your document should:
