Web design/ Graphics Design/ and anything else with a computer

Right now, i feel like i'm going to school for a piece of paper that says i know...what i already know. I'd like to get a good job in this field, but everyone wants a degree in this field, that i dont have, but i know alot about. So if anyone is willing to give me a chance, let me know!

you would be better off getting out of Texas...lol.. I have an AA in Graphic Design.. and people really don't even seem to care about that.. everywhere I go they want to see a portfolio and want on job experience... I am only 24 and have been doing this for almost 8 yrs.. well... design for about 4 and actually ran a printing press before.. I am planning to move back to AZ.. more money, more jobs, and cheaper cost of living... oh.. and perfect weather.

Send me your resume's guys. My company is currently trying to bid a RFO for garland ISD for Web designer/programmers. And we want to have some resume's that we can throw at them as proof to our ability to do the job. If we use your resume' and get the bid. then you have a job. It is a one year contract with options for a second. So e-mail me your resumes and salary requirements.

Sounds like my situation. Got an AA in Computer Animation / Multimedia ... and it's like they don't want to look at ya unless you have 2 years on job experience... or at least a BA.

As soon as I can afford it, I'm probably going to go back to school, A&M most likely, and go for my BA ... just to have a little more pull, but damnit... entry level position, people! Is it such a foriegn concept? C'mon!

I had considered animation when I went to school.. but it is such a hard field to find a job in anyways.. the only way to make money is to get on at Industrial Light and Magic...lol.. I have thought of getting into webdesign.. but don't want to go back to school.. I even considered changing fields completely and doing custom paint and body... oh well.. life goes on..

Yeah i have to agree with you on the difficulty in finding an animation job... After getting my degree in animation it took about 6 months before i found any kind job dealing with my degree. You just have to keep trying.. i work for an animation co. here in irving where we just finished jimmy neutron, a 3d animated film for nickalodeon, and now i am working on the TV series for it. So if you have any questions about this line of work let me know. Infact if you are looking for something in the future we just got the go ahead from paramount for a jimmy neutron 2 and another film offer from universal and tom hanks.

well as far as i know.........i'm sure that we will be needing some concept artists in the near future, because of the new movies that we have coming up, but i will keep you informed. By the way you really don't need a degree to do what i do, on the last film that i worked on, the guy sitting next to me was 19 years old, and didn't have a degree. You just have to be really good at what you do.
