Graphic Designer

Odds of Getting In

Great! However, a lot of people are figuring this out, so it's beginning to get a little less great. Competition is a bit stiffer nowadays for graphic designers. Each year more people graduate with a degree, which causes the graphic designer pool to expand. Fortunately, opportunities are growing at roughly the same rate. Employment is expected to grow 13% in the near future. Interactive media is an exploding field. Ever heard of Twitter? More and more graphic designers are needed to fill positions. And the demands are getting more challenging—they may need to design something in 140 characters or less.
