How to build your web design career

Paul Boag

So you want to be a web designer. Or perhaps you already are and don’t know what your next step should be. Either way you will have tons of questions. This is the place to ask them.

Hardly a week goes past without me receiving an email from somebody wanting advice about their career. They are unsure of what to do next. Should they go to University? Should they setup by themselves or try and get a job? They just have so many questions. I figured it was time we tried to answer them.

On the 21st May the Boagworld Show is back for its 12th season. This time we are going to be looking at building your web design business. We will be discussing everything from winning pitches to work/life balance. Best of all we will be discussing these questions with some of the biggest names from web design.

We want to start the season by looking more broadly at your web design career. We want to discuss questions about how to start or what type of job to get. Should you work in-house or would agency life suit you better? If you have a question about your career we want to hear it.

But more than that we want your answers to. Take a moment to look at the questions below and share your thoughts based on your own experience. Did you make a mistake in your career that you want to warn others about? If so please share it with us.
