I tried applying twice already to a software company called Reynolds and Reynolds for an entry-level position that required no experience. I graduated from A&M with a degree in English and figured that they would take that into consideration, but in the end, they decided not to call me back or e-mail me to go forward with the interview process.
So, I really want to start a career doing technical writing. I regretfully haven't taken any internships since I've took part-time jobs during the summer to pay for whatever I needed to pay, so that probably hurt me for the job. What else are these companies looking for in an entry-level technical writer? Do I need to take any technical writing classes, even if what they teach there probably don't have anything to do with the way the job entails?
