Technical Writers - International Truck and Engine Corporation

I very much enjoyed working with professionals in the STEM field. I found it very easy to work collaboratively with them, and follow their thought processes when receiving updates on their research and design work. In this role, As a learner, I appreciated encountered new technology and products both conceptually when working with engineers, and in research and development facilities. Using that information and experience, wrote engine operation and maintenance manuals, as part of a team of technical writers and engineers. I also created and edited digital images of products, for inclusion in automotive manuals.
