I am currently in graduate school; my projected completion is
December. Although I will possess an advanced degree in technical writing,
I still lack a lot of the skills/experience (HTML, Quark, Frame, RoboHelp,
2-3 yrs. experience) that I see employers list in their ads.

I know a little PageMaker but not a lot of the bells and whistles.
Like, Paul, I will find myself trying to break into the field. Do you think
my lack of these skills and background will hinder my ability to find a
descent job after graduation?

Thanks in advance for your opinion/advice.
