It’s funny how people perceive me as just a web designer who does pretty graphics and that’s it. No one recognizes the fact that I am a PROGRAMMER! Is it because I am a girl? So I get people sending me messages and emails of job positions that are only free lance web designer, or flash developer? I am like is that a career? I am not even THAT good at it. When I apply for jobs I apply for FULL TIME Programming or any Information Technology related jobs. That’s all. I hate FREELANCE work! I want a real job with management and people. I don’t want to deal with single clients! It’s horrible!
The funny part is that I got interviewed for those real programming or technology related jobs! You know why I am never asked or would ever be considered for a graphics design or web design job? It’s because I didn’t go to a community college to LEARN IT! That’s what those jobs ask for! No one understands that. The people who think they are better than me think that’s the type of job I should be looking for, and I get interviewed for the ones that are not that.
I don’t get it! Why are people so self centered or think I deserve to be only working as a graphics/web designer? I am not GOOD at it. It’s a talent I just do for fun. I worked as a designer for 6 years for fun! It’s not a long time career and I never wanted to be one! I just ended up as one and those who are not supposed to be even programming get recognized as such. What the hell is wrong with the world? Why people who know me think I should only be looking for certain jobs and not what I am supposed to be doing in life?
