Can a proofreader become a tech writer? Please advise ...
I'm a proofreader in a business consulting company for the past 3 years. I have worked on mostly business docs. I'm a engineering graduate (BE-CSE). Can I apply for tech writer job? And will they consider my proofreader exp? Please advise.... Thanks in advance
Total views crossed the century mark... But still no one to advise... :( Waiting...

thanks.... Now I feel more confident in pursuing a career as tech writer.... :)
I started my career as a proofreader for 1 year. Now I am a technical writer since last four years in a good IT company. Do some research on internet and understand what technical writing is, then do some certification course and you are good to go. Don't give up until you get the good company. Trust me you are the best person to be a tech writer.
All the best!! :)
Thank you all for the encouraging words :)
