Ms. Park -

I never went to school. I'm self-taught in all of my working programs
(MS-Word, Visio, Excel, Pagemaker, Framemaker, Corel). I had eight years
experience as a reporter before becoming a technical writer.

You probably don't need a school. You just need an employer who will give
you a chance (Thank you, to the three to took chances on me...). Then you
need to show that you will work hard, learn new skills, and be a part of the
team.

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!

Sincerely,

Sarah Park
