I agree with Joe: study what interests you and see where it takes you.

I also have a liberal arts education: BA from Swarthmore College,
with a double major in Math and Philosophy. And if that wasn't
enough, I also have a MA from Yale in Semitic Languages.

I had no idea I'd end up as a tech writer, but it certainly seems
to be where I belong now.

sociology, philosophy, literature, history, and fine arts. I also read
every book my roommates left around.

I also have a Master's in Computer Science from Penn, and a certificate
in technical writing from San Jose State.

My advice to him is to study the subjects he is interested in: "follow
your bliss." Perhaps it will be harder to find a job; I dunno.
