Dear TECHWR-L subscribers,
I am considering a career change and would like to enter the technical
writing profession. I have general knowledge in the use of several
industry programs such as MS Word and Adobe Framemaker. I am uncertain
whether I should pursue a degree program or certificate program in
technical writing. Can any of you offer suggestions? Also, I was
wondering if you know the best schools that offer tech. writing
programs? The location is not important, since I am willing to travel
anywhere in North America to attend a good school. I would greatly
appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks!
