The Technical Writing Specialist will work as part of a technical writing team in the Documentation department developing hardcopy manuals and online reference materials for software products offered by The Reynolds and Reynolds Company and its affiliates.
You will conduct product testing before documenting new changes and have the opportunity to suggest improvements to existing Reynolds and Reynolds software. You will contribute topics for monthly publications covering new features released to customers and you will have contact with some customers to gather information when a request has been made for a product or service we do not currently offer. You will also be in charge of keeping help messages up to date within the software for the customers to use. You will write the instructions within the help messages and test the instructions to verify the results are correct.
Your training will consist of four months of combined classroom education and hands-on training to learn the Reynolds and Reynolds software. You will complete a training guide to understand the Reynolds and Reynolds style standards and processes for updating and maintaining software reference materials. You will also learn proper use of desktop publishing software and help authoring tools (for HTML), while working closely with an assigned mentor as you become familiar with departmental procedures and begin assuming responsibility for your own projects.
