Hi Debora!

Congratulations on earning your AS degree in Digital Media Graphic Design. You have several directions you can take your career with your new AS degree, talent and experience! I'm super excited for you!

One direction you can take is to look for traditional jobs in the digital media field. If you haven't already joined LinkedIn, I'd suggest you do so. LinkkedIn is a great networking site! And you can find opportunities on LinkedIn as well.

Ie., Graphic Designer listed three days ago in Los Angeles. Another opportunity is Theragun listed two days ago.

With that said, I realize that you might not be in a position to just simply apply for a job. If you need to keep the job you have, but want to gain experience and opportunity that fits your interest, abilities, and field of study you can try freelancing. This way you can gain experience and make a little money!

Two free web sites I'd recommend checking out for freelance work are fiverr.com and upwork.com. At these sites, you can look at other artist providing the same services that interest you and that you could perform. You can get an idea of how much to charge based on your experience and how to set up a profile. From there you can set up a profile for free and get started!

Hope this helps!!
Mark

its always great to know your strong suit to know where to apply and what kind of job you want.
so always start with knowing your business well, know your strengths and your weaknesses..
start simple, by making a cons and pros about where you wanna work and start analyzing if its where you feel like you belong
because i believe that employees always tend to give their best when they feel like they belong to where they are working.

and always yes always remember to study the fields of design to know what fits you best.
