I have been WordPress developer selling themes at themeforest for the past three years. I’ve made a good living but due to the steady and constant increase in competition I have decided to leave it behind and look for a salary job in my city (Pittsburgh). I have been searching job listings on indeed for “Web Designer”, “UI Designer”, “Front End Developer”, “Graphic Designer” etc. for a few months now and I have noticed one thing:
The hardest part is that there aren’t just a couple skills that are needed. At least then I could just focus and really learn them. There are several required skills on most jobs that I am not familiar with and they are mostly different for each job. It seems impossible to learn every one of these technologies before being employed.
So my question is, how should I approach this process of finding a web design job? Is it reasonable to think I could find a job in the near future or should I just try to start freelancing?
