Want to be a successful graphic designer? Find your niche!

Let’s bite the bullet. The theory of survival-of-the-fittest is true, at least for graphic designing industry. There are plenty of graphic designers striving hard and trying their best to be successful. The competition is high because the reward is great. Once you are successful in establishing yourself as a graphic designer, you’ll be able to earn a fortune if you play the game right. But to stay the course and to reach your destination, you’d have to face the competition. Finding your niche is one of the best strategies to deal with this, for the fewer the opponents the more easily and quickly you’ll become a successful name. So, I have listed some great benefits a niche designer can enjoy over a jack-of-all-trade designer. Benefit #1: Less Competition You can’t be the best among millions of designers out there but you can be the finest logo designer of the entertainment industry because in that niche there are only a few hundred big names. Focusing on a design niche will not only reduce the size of the pool of your competitors, but choosing a niche you are best at also increases your chances of winning. The easiest to beat are the ones...

Interview with a Blogger

This is a true story as told to DiversityJobs, where you can find career interviews for the job you’ve been looking at and available positions in your desired field. I am a full-time blogger with my own website on Tumblr. My Tumblr blog is a collection of my amateur landscape photography and integrates FotoMoto technology to sell my artwork. I have been a blogger full time for the past year and a half. As a blogger, my work involves more than just the computer. I spend about 15 hours a week hiking and taking pictures for my blog. Then, I use editing software to fix any composition issues and to watermark my photos. I then go to my Tumblr page and post them. Finally, it is promotion time. I like my photography blog to have very little text and words and have the art speak for itself. So, I have to “speak for it” in other ways: through e-mails, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. These lead my followers back to my Tumblr site. The biggest misunderstanding about what I do is that it is an isolating job. I am out in the field taking pictures and often have friends with me when...

Interview with a Computer Programmer

* What is your job title and what industry do you work in? How many years of experience do you have in this field? I wear a number of different hats, including computer network technician, and computer repair technician. I have about five years experience with each of those main disciplines, writer, and social media enthusiast. * How would you describe what you do? What does your work entail? Are there any common misunderstandings you want to correct about what you do? I set up networks for home networking and small businesses, and provide technical support and troubleshooting when there are problems with the networks. I also help repair computers, especially those that have issues due to computer viruses and malware. The work I do is relatively simple, and women can do it just as well as men. It often seems that many women think it is a difficult and physical demanding job, and it really is not. * On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate your job satisfaction? What might need to change about your job to unleash your full enthusiasm? I would say my job satisfaction is about a nine. Increased money, and more balance,...

Lead Team Consultant Describes Importance of Being Oneself in a Job Interview

This lead consultant who speaks from personal experience, encourages actual job seekers to keep spirits up! She explains that everyone makes mistakes in job interviews, and that in the end, everyone gets a job sooner or later. I work as a lead team consultant for a company that sells educational items online and offers online support to homeschooling families. I have been at the company for 5 years now and I love it. I found this job basically by word of mouth. A friend of a friend knew that the company was hiring and told me to apply. However, I had to go and fill out an application online and I also had to put my information on Monster.com for the HR people. Since I work as a lead team consultant, I often participate in the hiring process especially for people on my team. When I am looking to hire people for my team, I prefer to use word of mouth first of all. I would ask around and see if my friends or colleagues know of someone who might be a good fit for the job. If I get a recommendation, I would look on Monster.com to see if I...

IT Specialist is Thankful for His Military Training

Considered working as an IT Specialist? This interview will take you through the ups and downs you can expect in the position, what it takes to land the job, what you can expect to earn and more. I am an IT Specialist with Cisco. I work on building network platforms. My team of ten installs networking solutions for call centers in India. I am 38 years-old and have been employed with Cisco for two years. However, I have 22 years of experience in the networking field. I retired from the military two years ago.

This is not true. They have to attend school or...
