Saint Paul is one shining example of a place that is full of a specific type of technical writer. As you probably already know, there are several large hospitals, as well as other medical facilities, in this area. As such, there is frequently a high need for experienced and/or educated medical technical writers. Most people who get these positions will start out with an entry-level type job, but there is still a lot of room to move up the ladder professionally for those who do exceptional work. Plus, every once in a while, it is possible to find a senior technical writing position open. In fact ,at the time of this writing, Smiths Medical Center is currently looking for the right person to fill this very important role.

Nearby Minneapolis also tends to have lots of openings for business technical writers of all skill and experience levels. No matter who you are, if you live in a bustling city like Minneapolis, and have a background in technical writing, your skills can and will be put to good use. Employers who are hiring or who have recently been hiring technical writers in various capacities include Cummins Power Generation, Entegee, the Datacard Group, and many others.

Other areas which tend to attract and hire a large number of technical writers in the state include Arden Hills, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Red Wing, Bloomington, Waltham, Pequot Lakes, Eagan, and many others. The truth is, though, that it really doesn’t matter if you live in one of these areas or not. While living and choosing to work in a place where you know technical writers are in high demand can seriously increase your chances for employment, any truly skilled and talented technical writer with the right drive and determination can find success anywhere in the state.

Probably the simplest and most effective way to find a job is to have connections in the industry, or to put it simply, to know the right people. You can do this by taking on an internship with any employer who hires technical writers, though ideally it should be an employer and a workplace that is as close as possible to the kind of career you would ultimately like to have for yourself. By doing your work well, you not only gain experience that can help to fill out a resume quite nicely, but you also get the chance to meet others in the industry, others who can help you later on down the road as you try to find and apply for jobs.

If you can’t find an internship, then do whatever else you can to get to know professional technical writers in your area. Joining a local professional organization, such as a professional writer’s guild, or even taking on an entry level job in a profession related to technical writing can help you greatly to make a name for yourself and eventually start a real career in this vast and growing industry.
