One of the women I work with is working on her MA in education. She chose
this option because she has a degree in social work, but she doesn't have
a degree that qualifies her for licensure. An MA in social work to
qualify for licensure would require her to attend college full time,
which is not feasible. After a semester of education classes, she is
questioning her choice, partly because of the time necessary to complete
the degree requirements (time off from work to fulfill observation,
student teaching, etc. requirements). We have worked together for about
six months. She does a most of the formatting of the reports and some
proofreading. She thinks she may be interested in changing her education
goals to an MA in technical and professional communication.

I told her to lurk on this list for a while and "listen" in on what we
discuss. I thought it might give her an idea of some aspects of technical
writing. Do any of you have any suggestions, horror stories, good
stories, etc. that you would like to share with someone considering a
career change? She said she might subscribe at some time, but in the
meantime asked if I would be willing to ask for some input. I'll forward
anything you might be interested in telling her. Her name is Tana.

Thanks for your help.
