1. Steady Job Growth

Toronto’s tech sector grew by more than 51,000 jobs from 2010 to 2016. This was while other industries in the Greater Toronto Area struggled to regain from losses after the Financial Crisis of 2007. This shows how necessary the tech industry is to Toronto’s economy.

A career in tech and web development means a career in a field that’s become the bedrock of the economy of Canada’s largest city, and an economic hub for all of North America.

2. Skills that Pay the Bills ( web designer salary )

A well-designed website can bring a lot of business to a company. Just having an online home that’s pleasurable to look at, and where it’s easy to find important information can lock down clients or customers better than a hundred sales pitches.

When you demonstrate that you can bring those skills to a company, the bosses should know how much your abilities – and you – are worth.

3. Fuel Your Creativity

When you’re working as a web developer, every job is different. Each client and employer has their own unique needs. It sounds like a platitude, but it’s true. Not every job is a blank canvas, but from the moment you sit down to work, everything that goes online is your creation.

In the 21st century, the web developer is the new artisan craftsman. It’s a beautiful feeling when you’re working on a job, sit back for a moment and reflect on an intuitively organized, exquisitely designed website, and say to yourself, “I built that.”

That’s job satisfaction for you.

4. Freedom of Movement

Any program or course that promises you your dream job as soon as you step away is lying to you. Working in the web is a solid career choice, but a lot of us work on contract, and manage several clients at a time.

You’ll learn to love your calendar apps almost as much as your mother, but you’ll also love the freedom of being able to work anywhere. Some of your clients may have office space you can use, but some will have contractors spread all over the city and all over the world. Work in your favorite coffee shop and get to know the staff and other regulars. Customize your home workspace to be just what you want – listen to your own music and wear your favorite slippers while you earn an income and build a career.
