Careers for graduates with graphic design degrees

The BLS reports that strong competition is expected for potential workers in graphic design. Due to the rewarding wages and high artistic freedom, many graduates of graphic design colleges pursue careers in the field. Still, growth in the coming years is expected to be strong. According to the BLS, a 13 percent increase in job opportunities is projected in the 2008-2018 decade. This could result in the creation of 36,900 new jobs. A bachelor's degree in graphic design, particularly one that is based in Web training, could offer you the skills to enter this competitive market.
