To be honest, I don't really know. I believe I am usually hired based on my
experience, not my education.

However, I can tell you that it's worth dollars. In my first "real" job (not
in technical writing), two years of college was worth an extra $2K per year
salary. Once I got my degree (I started in technical writing before I
completed my degree), I leveraged the degree into $6K per year more, but I
had to quit my job and find another one to do so.

BTW, I have a B.A. in English and am pursuing a B.S. in Electrical
