Internet & Website Development

In the era of Google and other search engines, information quickly is available with just a few keystrokes on a computer.

The people who create websites – which host everything from real estate listings to the menu for the local Italian restaurant–are known as internet and website developers. They are skilled in programming languages such as HTML and are able to use web-designing software like Adobe Dreamweaver, InDesign and a variety of photo-editing programs.

Most of the basic skills for internet and website development and design are taught in an associate degree program. Bachelor degree programs are more intense and concentrate on training in the Adobe Suite applications, which are considered the gold standard in the industry.

Internet and website developers can earn an average annual income of $62,500, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
