Professional Web Designers Please Read!! Need help!
Can anyone please help me out? I am a high school student doing a research report on the career of web designing. I had the option of choosing a career or researching a piece of literature. I thought it would be more helpful for me to do web design because I want to enter this field as a career.
If anyone is a web designer for a company or free-lancer, could you please answer a couple questions? I need a transcript, but I want to get some people from the online community because I don't know many people or companies who would be willing to do an interview. If you don't feel comfortable answering these questions I will understand or if possible can you email me, hrudomin @ comcast.net.
