I think some people may be too focused on specific skill sets or software that writers know. Writing is thinking on paper, after all. So a good, clear, organized thinker is going to write good, clear, organized text. Experienced, analytical writers can learn anything you need. What you really need are the core competencies: critical thinking, knowledge of usability, and technical background. 

I am an experienced, strong technical writer with business analyst skills. Background includes process flows, documentation, use cases, "swim-lane" diagrams, and "big picture" understanding of systems. Strong classical editor/writer.

Able to connect with and get results from all sorts of organizations and people. Social skills are very strong.

Enjoy collaborating and achieving goals, able to assess documentation needs and quickly work to design and produce just the right thing. 

Background also includes teaching ESL writing and speaking for business people (so I work well with diverse IT populations) human factors training, Information Mapping, front-end engineering training (to produce functional requirements), and general usability.
