Keep in mind that business writing (no matter what field) is in constant demand every year and will need very talented writers to carry out the task at hand. The question you should ask yourself is do you want to work full-time or do you want to be a freelancer.
As a full-timer employee youll dedicate yourself to one company and make a career within that institution while climbing the ladder to your success. It does pay well and you will be provided benefits, but you wont make as much money working full-time as you would as a freelancer like me. We tend to get paid more however were in charge of acquiring and maintaining our own benefits like health care because were considered self-employed. Also work for our clients can last anywhere from two to 12 months or longer. After which your assignment will end and then youll have to find a new client. Hopefully youll already have a substantial amount of money in your savings to live without work for a while (which I call the extended vacation) before your start work again.
As for the pay itself you will be compensated well enough to get by. I work in the technical writing industry and we can make anywhere between 50 to over 100K a year. Proposal and SQL Report writing you can make even more. But keep in mind that this is after you had at least five years experience.
