Few days ago, one of my students wanted to know how to create numbered headings in Word. When I was thinking of a topic to blog today, this topic came to my mind. Below are the steps for creating numbered headings.
1.From Home tab under Styles, Click Heading1.
2.Now from Paragraph group, click Multilevel List dropdown.
3.From the Multilevel list dropdown select your desired format.
All the headings in the Styles gallery will now have a number prefixed to the style preview.

I am trying to enter the Technical Writing field in NOIDA/NCR region in the software/IT industry and yes, it's giving me a real hard time.
Despite a training program (4 months approx.) in Technical Communication/Technical Writing in NOIDA, I am still clueless about landing my first job in Technical Writing.
My background is Science and Engineering, I have excellent written skills (and verbal) - but how do I effectively launch myself in NOIDA/New Delhi area?
Ever wondered what causes recruiters to reject resumes? We found a very interesting infographic by behiring.com that lists some reasons.

The first session I attended on day 2 was about Videos as a genre in Technical Communication. This paper was presented by Nabaneeta Sarkar and Faraaz Mohiuddin.
- Started with some statistics about how many words can be conveyed in a minute of video.
- Videos capture attention and create curiosity
- Result in faster transfer of skills
- Videos are more involving to the user when compared to plain text
- Videos make it easier to understand concepts and there is a higher receptivity to learning
What better way to start this post, but with a good news and bad news scenario? The good news was that this time, STC was back in Bangalore, closer home, after a gap of over 3 years. I’ve been attending these conferences regularly since 2008, when it was held in Pune. So there was no need to worry about which new language I had to learn. The crowd in Bangalore wasn't as big as it was in 2009. Over the course of these two days, I went about furiously filling the 20 page notepad with as much information as I could.
And the bad news?
What do you get when you have 593 years of work experience, a lot of which is as a manager? It’s the TC World Executive Conference!
Oh the title got your attention? Mission accomplished! Let's see if you can figure out why it's titled like that.
A Documentation Plan is a broad technical writing project plan covering all the execution, schedule, and personnel details.
Once you identify your goals for the assignment and create your audience profiles after the audience, you need to prepare a Documentation Plan.
You need to create a documentation plan to achieve the following goals:
To plan and track the execution of your deliverables
To share your execution strategy with design, development, and other teams
To track the progress of the development teams and change your plan accordingly
