Craig, you are my unofficial tech comm RSS feed - thank you.

Gene - agreed! There's definitely a limitation to the perspective you can offer as a "rising junior" (whatever that is) writing about a field you've never worked in. The site the article is published on is by and for high school and college students, which is a very cool project but I can't help suspecting it ends up being the blind leading the blind sometimes.

Hey, at least she's interested and actively engaged in her education and looking to make connections in the field - seems like she's on the right track, even if she in for a rude awakening (but really, what English major isn't?)

This is about what I would expect from a student whose exposure to the
field has all been through academia and web sites (there's no mention of
her having done any interning out in the real world). Will be
interesting to see if she posts any updates down the road that compare
her current expectations of her prospects with her actual experience
once she gets out of school.
