In today's economy, companies with a good web site can increase their outreach and sales potential. For example, an antiques store in Davenport, Iowa, with a good web presence can sell its wares throughout the world. Those who want to become webmasters (the ones who make websites) may have the world at their fingertips when they're looking for jobs.
Before looking into different degrees available or schools offering the courses you need, take the time to surf the web and look at different web sites. Think about what makes them attractive or unattractive. Do they look professional? Did they catch you eye immediately? Would you want to do business with that company based on the quality of its web site? Does the site look like a lot of work was put into it, or does it look like it was slapped together in a few minutes? These are questions to ponder as you're exploring the field for yourself. If you possess good visual and artistic skills, a Webmaster may be a wise career choice.
