    Hi, just found this place. I'm currently considering a change of career to become a web designer but I'm starting from scratch. I've been quoted silly money to do a CIW course (and I've posted in the CIW forum about that) and I'm looking for some good advice on what to learn in order to free me from call centre Hell and get me a job I'd enjoy doing.

    Cheers!

    None! Literally first steps into the unknown. I know a couple of full time web developers who love their jobs though and that's what inspired me. I understand it's a hard slog to get the required skills so any advice on starting on this career path would be most appreciated. I'm looking at 6 months to a year of hard study (preferably at home) and any suggestions on where to start in order to secure a decent entry level job would be great.

    Welcome to CF.

    Good luck with the web career, if you've got a passion and skill in design then you could easily get a job.

    Practice as much as possible and get a portfolio showing your skills - Keep an eye on your other topic as there seems to be quite a good input.
