ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- In an economy that is struggling to create jobs, employment for web developers and designers is outpacing many other industries. Even better, Web Design Learning Center of New Jersey can help students learn skills without the high cost of a college degree.
“Web design is one of the fastest growing job sectors in the nation,’’ said Elias Ocasio, the owner of Nariel LLC, which owns Web Design Learning Center. “It’s going to keep growing, too. Students who want good paying jobs with good job security and have an aptitude for technology and design.”
According to the Occupational Outlook reported by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, the projected increase for jobs in web design is 27 percent over the next 10 years. The median average salary for web designers, according to Salary.com, is over $70,000.
Besides bright futures and salaries, learning web design can lead to other benefits in employment. Web skills are also applicable to other career paths, and can improve logical and creative thinking. Designers can also start their own business, and add responsibilities at their current employment.
At Web Design Learning Center, students will get hands-on experience and build a portfolio that will help them land job opportunities more quickly than the traditional path through colleges.
“College is mostly theory,’’ Ocasio said. “Studying with us will help students build a portfolio. Even if someone started out as a web designer, this will help them learn more intricate work.”
Students at Web Design Learning Center receive hands-on instruction from a company that has created and maintained websites for companies in entertainment, fitness, logistics, medical and education.
The center has day, evening and Saturday courses. Classes are small, which allows for one-on-one instruction. Web Design Learning Center of New Jersey also offers certificate programs that include six classes for web design or seven classes for web design and programming. The fees for the certificate programs are deeply discounted from the individual classes.
