This is a toughie.  I recently made the mistake of expressing the opinion (in
the bionet.jobs group) that it was easier for an MA, MS or BA to get a job than
a Ph.D.  I got a flood of responses from people who were fresh out of school
(and some who had exp
erience) and unable to find a job. Your friend has an interesting background-
perhaps she can capitalize on her previous knowledge as well.  Any ideas out
there on careers which would utilize her expertise in both areas?
