#Top 10 problems of entry level technical writers and solutions (Reason1)

#1 Course over, but not placed yet. What to do?

Recently few students who have completed online and classroom courses from a very prestigious institute joined our institute with almost the same set of issues. In this series, I will discuss how they found us different.
Can a medical transcriptionist, fresh grad or anyone with non-IT background be industry ready just after 2-3 months of training? Can you do it?
This is the most common issue- before they start to understand the concepts, the batch is over. Now, what? Whom to rely and from where to get support. Even online materials/pen drive issued by the institute do not work after 6 months.
We have noticed that once a student stops attending the class, confidence level and focus starts to come down.
ADID Solution:- ADID is a family where once you become the ADID member our association will never last. Everything will be accessible to you forever, even our classroom classes and all for FREE.
We cover our syllabus in three months, but, encourage the student to attend the class till they get placed or become confident enough to crack interviews. We have noticed that once a student stops attending the class confidence level and focus starts to come down. So, we never let our student feel alone after the completion of syllabus also.
Our alumni can any day come and sit in our class and do the refresher course for FREE. We also provide access to e-library, group, blog, jobs alerts, online test etc. for lifetime.
Want to learn technical writing from the experts?Considering all the problems of entry level technical writer ADID have designed a technical writing training course. ApraDocs Information Developers
