What is "Quality Assurance"??? What do these jobs entail???

I'm looking for jobs I can do with my BA in Writing Arts, my strong attention to detail and word choice, and my writing/editing skills, and over the course of a relentless careerbuilder search, I came across QA jobs in many different industries. This seems like something I might enjoy. I'm young and relatively new to the work world, so I have no idea what QAs do. Does anyone work in the QA industry, or in "documentation control"? Can you tell me what on Earth these people do? And, how do you break in? Thanks:)
