What our students say
As a technical writer at IBM, I supported the team that provides product documentation for one of IBM’s most profitable product – WebSphere MQ (WMQ). As my placement progressed, I was given more independence which led to me single-handedly writing the entire documentation and dynamic for a major feature release on WMQ Explorer called Telemetry.
Working within a huge organisation like IBM exposed me to their business processes and I realised that there was more to the company than just producing software.
