Graphic Designer, Web in Morrisville:
"Most Colleges don't prepare you for the market."
Most colleges can teach you the principles of design and train your eye to recognize good design even if you aren't particularly good at design. However, college is also usually a vacuum, void of any real world experience because you're being taught by professors who haven't worked in the industry for 10+ years. (Those who can't do, teach) They know the majority of the young adults coming through their doors won't make it, so they have to put on a brave face and encourage fledgling designers even when they're fairly certain, they don't stand a chance. My advice is this: Work hard as hell. Don't try to be different, try to be good. Working hard and doing quality work will set you apart. If you aren't certain how to do something, teach yourself. Then get used to teaching yourself because you'll be doing it your entire career.
