    My advice to you my fellow brit

    Before looking for a sturdy job in WebDesign, do yourself a favour and get your qualifications in it - The pay will be much better and it will be easier to find a job with a suitable firm

    Unless you live down south, ie - London, Southampton and so on, web design jobs will be hard to find.

    Do yourself a big favour, invest in a domain, a hosting account and setup a portfolio, even if you're making sites and not selling them, you have a better chance with material than without.

    4 Degrees, no.

    You're totally wrong. Some of the biggest development companies hail north.

    Leeds, anyone?
    *bump* There goes another host.

    I am not from England but I think what 4 Degrees was trying to say is that it is hard to get a job because the area is so saturated with web designers. And even if there are big firms, I highly doubt they would hire someone just into the profession.

    I didn't say the companies didn't exist, I am saying it's very hard to get a job up here, I know, took me months. There are so many design companies up here that I didn't know about, I'm surprised there's any clients left to get.

    I'm Halifax based, just down the road from Leeds. Don't have any qualifications in web design, just 5 years of personal experience. I am relying on a personal web design company which, lets face it, has not succeeded as of yet. Anyone got any tips for joining a more professional company where I can guarantee I will receive some money? I am experience with HTML, CSS, Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, PHP
