Education and Opportunity

One of the best things about choosing the web developer career is that it doesn’t require as much schooling as other IT careers. To get an entry-level job, most employers will only require you to have an associate’s degree. This degree requires about half the time to complete as a bachelor’s degree, which is the general benchmark for other career paths in this field. Of course, it would be better to get a B.S. because it increases your skill set and offers a more rounded education, but it isn’t necessary to get started as a web developer.

Workplace and Opportunities

Opportunities for web developers are also more plentiful when compared to all other jobs but less so when contrasted against other jobs in the IT category. There are currently 141,400 web developer jobs nationwide with a projected 28,500 additional jobs to be added by the year 2022. This represents a growth rate of 20 percent, which drastically outpaces the general growth of the economy. In fact, the unemployment for web developers is only a hair over 4 percent, which is statistical full employment.
