Q: What do you believe you’re qualified to write about the topics in this blog?
A: In any field, a person is considered an expert only when that person has a balance of education and hands-on experience. Personally, I’ve got a computer science degree, and I have been working in the IT field for many years. After starting off in tech support, I gradually built up my freelance web design business. Therefore, I’ve got an education as well as a variety of relevant experiences.
Q: What are some options for turning a web design career into something else within the IT field?
A: It depends on how much climbing you want to do. A natural next step would be learning some web development. If you want to take a bigger leap from there, learn other programming languages. If you want to go all the way and help to fill a growing need, you could learn coding and networking and try for a job in cyber security.
Q: What are the most frequent complaints you get from web design clients?
A: The biggest complaints I get are that I’m taking too long, that there’s not enough communication, and that the client doesn’t have enough control of the website after I’ve handed it off to them.
Q: What tips would you give someone who is trying to get a full time job in web design?
A: First, get your materials together. Make sure that your résumé and portfolio are able to represent your skills and experience and your best work. Second, at your interview, dress nicely and be on your best behavior. Third, be prepared to ask good questions if given an opportunity. Fourth, don’t be shy about promoting yourself. Fifth, always send a thank you email to everyone involved in your interview. This will help to set you apart from your competition.
Q: Is freelancing the right choice for all web designers?
A: Definitely not. If you want to be a successful freelancer, I recommend that you do an inventory of your personal work style as well as your needs. Here are 5 points for you to consider:
- Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit?
- Are you self-motivated enough to be your own boss?
- Will you be able to run your own business? This involves being able to market yourself and being able to negotiate with clients.
- Do you have the time and dedication necessary to put into your work?
- What are your immediate and long-term needs?
Q: Do you have any tips for managing a caseload and keeping clients happy?
A: Yes. I think it’s often difficult for us creative types to organize our work lives. Here are my tips for managing your caseload and keeping your clients (or your boss) happy:
- When prioritizing tasks, follow a “first in, first out” policy.
- Always back up your work.
- Use a calendar to help relieve your stress and to allow you to give clients accurate time estimates.
- Communicate with your clients (or boss) regularly over the course of a project.
