Ever consider a career in technical writing? You would be one of the people companies would hire to write the instructions on how to use their products. What I love the most about my job is that it s never the same. For the most part I work for the defense industry writing technical manuals on how to use various military technologies. One minute I could be writing a manual for a cargo plane, the next for a tactical fighter, or the next an unmanned aerial vehicle. The demand is really high in the IT world.

The subjects of the manuals are always changing and are very exciting to work with. You would be tasked to write manuals on how to remove and install components, maintain, inspect, or operate the product. The demand for English or Liberal Arts majors in this field is great.

You'll also be task to take pictures regarding your subject or you may have to draw it using illustration software. So you can also get your artistic side on.
