Technical communicators are in high demand because they make technical topics understandable and use technology to make information usable.
- U.S. News & World Report recently ranked technical writer as #3 in Best Creative & Media Jobs
- Employment of technical writers is expected to grow 10% between 2014 and 2024, which is greater than the 7% increase expected for all occupations and the 4% for all media and communication workers (Bureau of Labor Statistics)
In addition, Texas employs more technical communicators than any other state except California, and the DFW metroplex employs the sixth most technical communicators among metropolitan areas in the United States.
