Website Builders create and put together any websites and web pages by combining any number of visual custom design elements that include text, photos, graphics, animations and videos. A Website Builders could create a brand new website or simply make any update to any design and layout of any existing webpages.
Website Builders acquire a huge range of educational backgrounds, with many people transitioning into web design after starting their careers in web development, graphic design, or other areas related to visual design. To get into being a Website Builders, you don’t necessarily need a bachelor’s degree. Although having a bachelor’s degree in a field like design, communications or marketing couldn’t hurt, a traditional four-year college degree is unlikely to give you the skills you would need to be employable, as in web design.
Instead, most Website Builders working in the field have found other ways to build out their web design skills. Many attend coding bootcamps, certification courses through S.A.I.T. or even online web design courses in order to pick up the technical skills necessary to get a job as a Web Designer. There are also many courses and bootcamps dedicated to becoming Website Builders.
Web development bootcamps or courses teach students the required skills necessary to code in various programming languages, while user experience (UX) design courses would definitely be relevant to building out the skill set of aspiring Web Designers or Web Developers, since UX design principles are dictating the design of every website or web page being created right now. That will also show employers you’re dedicated to continued learning.
