I have a Bachelors degree in Journalism. I think it's very rare to see a job
opening for a tech writer in southern California that doesn't require a
degree in Journalism, English, computers, or a related field. To me, college
isn't just what you learn in the classroom. You learn responsibility,
organization skills, time management, leadership, etc.
