Hello all!
I'm Dawn, a newbie to this group (joined yesterday).

Years ago, (gulp...1996) I minored in Technical Writing but didn't do
anything with it.

Now, I'd love to get back into the industry and want to go back to school.
I'm in the Twin Cities, MN and wonder...what's the best educational path to
take. There's Certificates in Technical Writing and Masters Degrees and I
could even go back to get an undergrad degree in it as well.

What would you do in my shoes? What's going to get me ahead and eventually
set me apart from others in the field to get a job?

Thanks in advance for your help. I look forward to learning about this
career through your experiences.

Take Care,
