Please tell us we don't have to go! I've been a professional student for
77% of my living, breathing years, and I don't think I can handle another
four years of school just so I can be a little more marketable.

I will also graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in English (Technical
Writing concentration) in May 1995. I have obtained a lot of
great practical experience through the Tech Writing Program at the
University of Central Florida, and I can't see how a graduate degree
could help me! I know that graduate degrees in Tech Writing often
revolve around theory. Is that what I need to know to get a job?

I was really hoping I could wing it for the first few years of my career
as I learn the tricks of the trade. With experience I would continue to
move up the corporate ladder. I hope my wimpy wish comes true.
