I'm contemplating a career change from downsized Sr. Network Admin. to Tech
I have 20 years tech experience with a variety of hardware and software
and have a B.A. in English.

I've done some doc writing in Word for various systems I've administered.
I currently live in Oregon, but I'm considering relocating to the Bay Area.

In short, am I totally nuts to contemplate this change considering the
difficulty of finding
a job in this market? What skills should I "bone up on" to increase my
chances of finding
a job? Would an on-line tech writing course help? Can you point me to a
link on creating
a portfolio?

I'm willing to intern or take an entry level job. I believe I'd be much
and have more natural talent writing on technical topics vs. continuing to
work in
Network Administration.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
