I am a double major in Biology and Technical Writing at Carneige Mellon
University. I am a member of the American Medical Writers Association,
but I was wondering if there are any other technical writing
organizations I can join which might help me with my career? Also, I
was wondering how important it is for me to have a masters degree? Are
there jobs available for technical writers who have a B.S. or is it
better for me to go on for my masters?
