Technical Writing Specialist
The Technical Writing Specialist will work on a technical writing team in the documentation department developing hardcopy manuals and on-line reference materials for software products as well as enhance existing software for easier use by customers.
You will conduct product testing before documenting new changes and have the opportunity to suggest improvements to existing Reynolds and Reynolds software. You will make sure your documentation is accurate and complete by working with product software manuals. You will contribute topics for monthly publications covering new features released to customers and you will have contact with some customers to gather information when a request has been made for a product or service we do not currently offer.
Your training will consist of four months of classroom education to learn the Reynolds and Reynolds software. You will complete a training guide to understand the Reynolds and Reynolds style standards and processes for updating and maintaining software reference materials, learn the Interleaf desktop publishing software, and work closely with an assigned mentor as you become familiar with departmental procedures and begin assuming responsibility for your own projects.
