Learn to write, get some technical comprehension and start writing/designing/illustrating operating manuals.

>>435306
sounds niche, how do you even find a job doing that.

desu, I've learnt it, did an internship, and landed a job.
It's often done freelance, from home with occasional visits to the company, to talk to the people involved in the manufacturing and to try out the product, if possible.
My guess would be to look up a field you're interested in (mechanics, measurement technology, optics, automotive stuff, etc.) study some manuals and look for firms in your area that could be in need of some fresh datasheets, manuals, whatever. Offer your services. Go from there.
Or look up how you get into the work in the country where you live. Technical writer would be one job description in anglo countries, I suppose. Or look up how to get into technical documentation

Uh... Do prepress work at a print shop? Or that may be too similar for you.

Had a great remote packaging design job up until this morning. Corporate downsizing...gotta love it. I'll no doubt be transitioning to a new career in asking "want fries with that?" soon. Just kill me.
