While my job title isn’t as a web designer, it’s part of my ‘job description’, plus I’m in that line of work (IT Director/Systems Administrator)

I went to school for a BS in Information Technology, which gave you the ability to concentrate in a section of your choice, but really it doesn’t matter. I went to a university, and debated getting my masters and then realized how pointless a masters is in IT, and I’d be better off getting certifications.

While IT based jobs are in higher demand, the issue really is where are you and the job market there, plus experience. The biggest issue I’ve noticed is people with more experience being out of work, and willing to work for less, so that recent graduate isn’t getting the chance. I’ve had this problem personally..

Sure – he can go back to school for web design, but it will depend on his dedication and expedrience. Personally, I’d work on putting a few websites together to show off potentional employers. Now, if he knows nothing about actual coding for the website, then he may want to consider going back for that. While I learned in basic HTML originally, I ventured my knowledge on my own, to give me a better show. My new job requires me to use ASP and VB, which I hate, but I am capable of doing. My volunteer work is PHP based, which I prefer.

What about going back for IT, focusing on web development. Maybe that would be a good field to work on.
