How to Get Web Design Experience
You always hear the catch-22 that to get a job you'll need experience, but to get experience you need a job. Luckily, the web design world doesn't work that way! You can get a web design job without having had a web job before. What you really need is a great portfolio and a lot of practice. How do you start making a great portfolio if you don't have any clients, you ask? Easy! Just make a site and get out there and start creating. Future employers don't care if you made it in your web design classes. They care if you can create a functional, beautiful site, so show them that you can. Make a portfolio site even though it probably won't have a lot of stuff in it right off the bat. Just going through the process of creating it will help you learn and expand your skills. You can practice making contact forms, 404 error pages, and experimenting with responsive design. The sites you've worked on will come later.
