Deciding on a career is a difficult decision. It’s hard to imagine working one job for the rest of your life. I have narrowed my choices down to two career. My current field of studey is Graphic Design, but I have an interest in Desktip Publishing as well.

As a graphic designer I would work on everything from books, magazines, and posters to pamphlets, brochures, newsletters, letterhead, and business cards. I could also design signs, t-shirts, forms, programs, advertising pieces and lots more. My earnings would vary widely, depending on the amount of my skill, the kind of work being done, the level of design, and the amount of time I spend working on projects. As working as a graphic designer I could charge from $50 to $100 dollars an hour. My annual income could range anywhere from $25,000 to $150,000. To get business, I could volunteer to deo design for schools, churches, and other nonprofit organizations. Iwould have to build a portfolio of my work, and maybe send out promotional flyers with marketing and business tips. I could also contact businesses and get appointments to show my portfolio to help me get a job.

On the other hand, as a desktop publisher I would also design brochures, pamphlets, and other pieces for companies. I may also design and produce direct-mail pieces, everything from catalogs to return devices, such as postage paid mail in cards. My earnings would vary as well as a desktop publisher. Being a skilled desktop publisher I should be able to make from $200 to $600 per day. The average rate I could charge is $35 to $55 per hour. In addition my annual income could range from $25,000 to $40,000. To accquire work I could advertise my desktop publishing skills by informing printers and others in the typesetting and desktop publishing field that I am in business, and by producing a sales flyer and mailing it to publishers, newspapers, and any company that produces any kind of printed material. I would need to follow up with a phone call an an in-person interview if I can get it. I could always try advertising in the yellow pages to find work.

Even though my two career choices seem quite similar, they are actually far from being the same. True some of the work may be the same but the pay is what makes all the difference. I will continue with my current field of study, graphic design, and try to make my mark on society through art and design. Being a graphic designer is apparently my first choice for a life-long career, for its realm of work can be widely diverse, therefore giving me more choices of what kind of work to do and who to do it for.
