highly competitive. Some people love it as a career, for others purely as a hobby while some may like to use it as a part time freelancing tool. For becoming a computer graphic designer you need a four year college degree or a Bachelors Degree. Some technical positions can be obtained if you do a two year college degree or an Associates Degree. Remember however that this type of career does not move ahead, without adding further
educational qualification. The criticality of formal education must be realized if you wish to pursue a career in this field.

Of all those who have taken up computer design work as a career, almost one third work as freelancers. Nearly half of all freelancers hold regular jobs in either computer graphics or some computer related jobs.Freelancing is a good option in this career since there would always be demand from smaller firms for a computer graphic designer.

Computer graphic design can offer you a variety of career options. You could choose a career in the print media like books and magazines, audio media like radio advertising or digital media like films and television. A career in a small or large specialist company may throw up a steady stream of work, which may not be very wide in terms of variety. This is the responsibility of every freelancer in this profession.

A mere college degree and knowledge of your future goals are not enough if you wish to pursue this as a career. You must develop your computer skills further along with the knowledge of using computer graphic software. You need to make a portfolio which is a collection of some of your best work. The portfolio content can be a deciding factor on whether you would get the job or would still be in the queue.

Your aim after finishing college and deciding what you want to do is to get that first entry level job. Computer graphic design jobs can be found through online job boards, classified ads both in print and online, and through your college or universities job placement center. If you are looking for opportunities as a freelancer, then look through online job boards, classified ads as well as job for hire boards. Work for hire boards? Here is wishing you all the best in your hunt for a graphic design career.
