你离技术写作还有多远?

何准备去做一个技术写作呢?我离技术写作还有多远?

接触任何新的岗位,都是要从它的职位说明(Job Descriptions)和面试问题开始的。

1  什么是职位描述?

职位说明(Job Descriptions)其实也是一种人力资源领域的技术写作。是对一种岗位通用的书面描述,主要包含以下几个部分:

  • 公司简介
  • 行业
  • 岗位要求背景
  • 岗位名称
  • 工作类型
  • 工作地点
  • 工作职能部门
  • 岗位职责
  • 任职要求
  • 经验要求
  • 技术要求
  • 联系信息

当我们对一个公司和工作确定了自己的意向,主要的问题就是如何使自己具备任职要求和一些技术要求来满足日常岗位职责工作的需求。

经验就只有一条
仔细研读JD,抽取不懂的知识领域关键字,根据关键字搜索各种资料做系统性学习。

下面是一个技术写作的职位说明样例

根据个人的经验和知识体系,我们可能抽取的关键字为:

  • Minimalism writing style
  • DITA Content Structure

搜索网络搜索关键字,学习相关知识,一般建议进行系统性学习,推荐纸质书籍。因为书籍的编纂都是成体系的。而且建议读原版英文书籍。

2 有哪些面试问题?

一类职位的面试问题总结是另一种渠道去做知识面的扩充以及寻找与目标职位的知识差距。

面试问题一般分为这么几大类:

  • 一般性问题:个人经验,履历,和价值观
  • 技术性问题:岗位相关的技术问题
  • 一些测试:实践性操作测试

下面我收集了一些技术写作的面试问题,看看你是否每个都可以回答上来呢?你的知识体系覆盖到了这些点吗?(仅供参考)
