So, I’m about to finish my undergraduate career in Graphic Design this spring, and I’m pretty eager to get a real job.
I have experience in branding, packaging, web design, and newspaper design; and my current internship allows me to design print and web media. I know how to code in CSS and HTML and I’m well-versed in the Adobe Suite.
What I’m really wondering: is there anything else I should be learning? How big should my portfolio be? And where do I even start to find a job?

Is your goal to be in web design? Or are you open to any graphics jobs?
DH’s cousin who majored in graphic design has her own wedding coordination business (in addition to being a coordination, she designs invitations/programs/etc. And I think she also works for a floral company.
Where I work (a children’s hospital), our graphic designers work on publications 99.999% of the time. Newsletters, pamplets, posters, etc. I’m a web developer, and the web developers do their own graphics if needed for the website; I work for a 6000+ person company, but we don’t have the resources to have a web designer on-staff.

I’m pretty much open to any Design job I can get right out of school. I do love Web Design, but I’m not going to be picky right after graduation. My dream job would be to handle all that kind of stuff at once, like I do at my current internship (a good portion of the promotional material goes through me). But the position I’m in is only open to students.
And that’s a big company! Like, bigger than my university.
