What does a Content Writer do?
The job of a content writer is to create print and digital content for companies that provides information or showcases the products or services they offer. To develop content that accurately reflects company ideals, content writers often research the material they need to write each article or product description. They collaborate closely with a content manager and clients to write according to a company's editorial style. An effective writer works independently and consistently meets deadlines.
Most content writers have an undergraduate degree in English or marketing. However, it is possible to enter the field without a degree if you start as an intern or demonstrate writing proficiency with a portfolio of your work. To be successful in this role, content writers must know how to use a variety of writing and publishing programs, such as Microsoft Office, G Suite, and WordPress. A strong attention to detail and the ability to work under pressure is essential.
