What is the difference between a Writer and a Technical Writer?
A Writer is a broad term but refers to someone who writes articles, books, screenplays, scripts, or essays professionally.

A Technical Writer is a Writer with a specialization in an industry such as engineering or medicine. They are qualified to write on these specific topics and are familiar with industry jargon. They are often responsible for writing industry-specific content.
What qualities make for a good Writer candidate?
Writing is a vast field. A job description should include the type of content the Writer is responsible for, the quantity of content expected on a weekly basis, and the pay scale. A competitive salary and the mention of additional employee benefits or privileges make the job description stand out.
How can you make a Writer job description stand out?
There are many types of writing. A Marketing Copywriter creates catchy and engaging content that sells, while a Technical Writer writes specialized technical content. An Essay Writer focuses on extensive research-based topics, and a Journalist writes about news-related topics assigned by their media outlet.
Freelance Writers may write for a combination of outlets and may earn a living on a per-piece basis. They might pitch their ideas to a publication before creating content. Writers may write for websites, publications, social media, manuals, pamphlets, and more.
