Subject:So what do you do with SOCIAL sciences? From:Gretchen Toth <TOTHGL -at- CNSVAX -dot- UWEC -dot- EDU> Date:Fri, 10 Feb 1995 09:30:51 -0600
Gregg Roberts just asked me how I will be using my background in Psychology
with Technical Writing. I figured that once I get out into the "real world" it
wouldn't do much for me, except that I could say "well I wrote stuff" and "I
did a two-factor ANOVA one time."
Is there anyone who has had a background in the SOCIAL sciences who would share
how they have used that background or share how that background may actually be
sought by an employer?
