Luis’s Answer

According to the Bureau in Labor Statistics Graphic Designers have a growth job outlook of 3%, which is slower than average. Meaning the job market is growing at a very slow rate. "Graphic designers are expected to face strong competition for available positions."

Its a great creative field, Graphic designing.

Our friends here have suggested you mediums like LinkedIn, Job Sites, Staffing Companies and all.

Meanwhile, you can start freelancing your services. There are many websites which offer this opportunity and gives you a plethora of clients in the global market.

One I know is www.fiverr.com, I recently got my Business Logo Designed by a guy sitting somewhere in Philippines and he did an awesome job. You are in creative industry, use your creativity to reach out, being visible to people. There are many social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram that people use to market their services.

Just don't look for opportunities in one way, go all in. Hope that helps, All the Best!

You can find a lot of graphic designer jobs on Linkedin. I would make a Linkedin account and put in my information and make a profile and put up your graphic design work and apply for jobs through there.

Michelle (Shelly)’s Answer

AS a few others have suggested, definitely looked on LinkedIn and Career Monster and other sites like that. I always see jobs for Graphic Designers.

But until then start building a portfolio, you can just create anything but get a good range of items. Make some logo's, cards, menus, fliers, etc. Freelance and start offering your services to family and friends, you'd be surprised as to what people need!

I have my own business now with Graphic & Web Design but I started off freelancing 10+ years ago!

Good luck!
