I have been in IT support for over 5 years now and not really progressing anywhere. I'm kind of stuck in my job with lots of people moaning at me a lot of the time..along with many other gripes I have but I'm sure you don't want to read about that
I am looking to move into something different and more rewarding, hopefully tapping into my creative side without leaving computers behind completely.
I have dabbled with website design, but never really considered it as a career until recently whilst looking at options. Don't get me wrong I'm sure web design has its challenges too!
I was wondering if anyone has come from a similar background and could give any advice or experiences?
If not, where is a good place to start with? I'm sort of looking into doing a html\css course to begin with. How did everyone else start out?
What challenges did everyone else face or currently face?
Sorry for all the questions, I hope I didn't post this in the wrong place.
Thanks very much for any and all help
However due to the lack of opportunities I was presented based on my beginner experience, I hadn't got any work is a while which is why I moved to SEO work. I again spent another month learning about SEO, obtaining an internship which then led onto being full-time work. I currently have the opportunity to determine what I want to do in the long term and have been interested in moving to Web Designing since I actually wanted to major in an Art field pre-college (UK) but chose the IT-field.
I would like some advice from fellow Web Designers and professionals about what steps to take in pursuing this career and being successful? I feel that the knowledge I have obtained through my internship as a Front-End Developer and work in SEO could transition well to Web Designing.
