Subject:The question of education... From:"L.Danielle Beaton" <x93qhf -at- JULIET -dot- STFX -dot- CA> Date:Mon, 7 Oct 1996 15:08:27 -0700
Here is a question for all of you who are out in the technical writing
I am graduating with an advanced major degree in English and
considering a masters in technical writing. What are my chances of
landing an entry level job in the field with the degree that I have? From
what I read there is a high demand for technical writers.....do I continue
on with graduate school or work my way in from here. My background in
computers in extensive and my HTML documentation is super....
To go or not to go.....
I welcome you input....
