I have a related question. I'm a technical editor (I'll edit anything, I'm
not picky) with most of my experience (almost 5 years with "technical
editor" in my title) in science. If I went back for a Master's in Technical
Communication, emphasizing writing more than editing, would it help me get
ahead, or would I be wasting my time since I'd probably be able to get into
the writing aspect OJT?
