About the Career

Websites have become essential information and communication tools as well as a means of doing business for many companies. They are increasingly being used for education and training. Opportunities for people with web design and maintenance skills are found within organizations and companies across every business sector as well as with technology companies and firms that specialize in web design and e-commerce. Some web professionals even go into business for themselves and work on a contractual basis.

Using HTML, web editing, graphics, animation, audio and multimedia software, web designers create the interface for site visitors to gather information or transact business. Web developers use programming skills and languages such as Java and Visual Basic. Web designers and developers also keep the content of websites updated.
