A terrific chance, IMHO! I'm much like you, I think. I'm a Tech Writer
with a Computer Science minor. I recently found my dream job, as a Tech
working for Intergraph, a computer/graphics firm. I have the potential here
move out of my Writing slot and into, say, testing, or even programming. If
have the desire, both to learn and to succeed, you can go places.
Did you get a B.A. or a B.S.?
