Your English writing skills may just not be enough to make you a good technical writer. Rithu Kumble finds out that there’s more to this profession in Am Not Just a Writer. Dishaa Ganapathy takes the story further with her article – From User Guides to BRDs, on how you can make the shift from technical writing to being a business analyst. What does it take to give up the security of a full-time job as a technical writer to pursue higher education in a new country? Is it worth it? Gurpreet Singh tells us in Higher Education in Technical Communication.

Anindita Basu is back with her Writing Tips, and we go plane spotting with Sriram Hariharan in our new section, Unwind. This section aims to get to know our community members who pursue hobbies beyond their day jobs. In Prez Talk, Naveen D’cruz talks about his experience at the Pune zip conference. Also, the 14th STC India conference will be held in Bangalore this year, and we’re calling for proposals. Details are available here. We look forward to active participation!

We hope you enjoy reading this career and education special!
