Chosen Job Advertisement: Graphic/Web Designer
After browsing several jobs jobs in this field, and much careful thought, I decided to choose the job advertisement above. There are a few reasons for this choice:
Firstly, the job on offer covers print, web design and branding, which means one would have to quite versatile to work in this environment. To me, a role as a print and web designer would be more interesting than specialising in a particular area. The daily challenges would vary, there is more creative scope, and you wouldn’t be always stuck be doing the same thing. Ultimately I would like to work in both web and print, which is why I find this job appealing.
I also have print design, art-working experience, and some branding knowledge. The software
requirements for this job are not out of my depth either, I use most of the applications on a daily basis, and the others for example: Quark, which I have worked on in past, I could easily brush up on.
From what I have mentioned above it is apparent of what my strengths and weaknesses are.
My action plan is:
To build on my XHTML and CSS, to a level where I can hand code, without using Dreamweaver.
Maybe several months down the line I will be saying something different. Hopefully by then
I wouldn’t be so daunted by a developers role.
