Web Design is one of the fastest growing industries in today’s job market. Web technology powers almost every aspect of our lives, and it takes a specialized skill set to build great sites and applications. Global Information Technology is where you can develop your talents.
Web designers work both independently and with others on a variety of day-to-day tasks and projects. Teamwork, relationship building, a solid skill set, and attention to detail are all keys to success. Typically web designers work in a traditional office setting, though more and more web designers work remotely. Web designers can be employees, freelance or contract workers, or self-employed individuals who own their own businesses. Specifics really depend on the company or institution’s size, work culture, and objectives.
While the core skills will always be useful and relevant, web designers must keep up with the latest technologies and techniques as well as versions of software from Adobe.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, web developers with programming and design skills earned a median annual salary of $62,500 in 2012, while graphic designers without programming skills earned a median annual salary of $44,150. The market for web developers is expected to grow by about 20 percent over the next ten years, and designers with knowledge of programming for mobile devices will have the most opportunities.
Web design is one of the industries that will continue to grow even if other sectors of the economy temporarily slow down. If you have a flare for design and a fair amount of technical savvy, you should look into getting a web design degree.
Very little. As long as you have a basic knowledge of any Windows operating system, can type 35 wpm, and have basic knowledge of any MS Office product we can teach you the rest.
Nothing fancy. It would be helpful if you had your own computer at home with access to the internet. However, if you don’t have a computer, you can come into our office and practice using one of ours. However, if you do have a computer at home with internet access we will give you access to our Student Remote Connection which has all the software on it you will need for this course.
You get a Certificate of Completion, you will be able to save all of your class projects to a flash drive that can be used as a Web Portfolio, you can request a Letter of Recommendation, continued access to the Student Remote Connection, and Job Placement assistance.
