Having said that, make no mistake that having the appropriate degrees will certainly help to open up more doors for the individual seeking employment in this field. Without it, it often means having to start at entry level.
For those that want to enter into the field of design without a degree, they really need to set themselves up as a self-employed professional. In other words what they’re going to do, is become a freelance web designer.
The emphasis will be put on the individual building their credibility. With them not having a degree to back up what they are capable of, they are going to have to do this by example. In order to be able to do this, they are going to need to build a portfolio, and this is where the challenge may be. It may mean starting off doing some projects for free.
