13-13 Alternate Careers to Technical Writing

Statutory Disclaimer:

  • Through this blog, the author does not intend to disregard or degrading any profession.
  • This blog is our humble effort to put together a list career options functionally or judiciously viable for being considered as alternative options to Technical Writing.
  • Though the two lists may appear tacky in their own perspective and taste, our focus aligns to neither of the two beliefs.

Choosing a career is a decision of a lifetime. Encountering mid-life crisis in the same is no less than a set-back. Feeling urges to hang-the-boots or calling-it-a-quit is sufficient enough to get Goosebumps. Let alone the raised eyebrows and persistent questioning or nudging by peers, family and friends.
