Career Opportunities in Web Development

Graduates with a web development and administration specialization may consider the following careers:
  • Applications Manager

    An application manager chooses which software applications to use within a company. They have a baseline skill level in IT that enables them to test and choose the right software for the unique needs of their employer.

  • Front-End and Back-End Developer

    Front-end and back-end developers are both involved in the development of a site. Front-end developers primarily deal with the appearance of a site while back end developers ensure its functionality.

  • Web Application Developer

    Web application developers, also known as web app developers, are responsible for the development and design of web applications.

  • Web Designer

    Web designers are primarily responsible for the layout and interface elements of a website or web application. They ensure that sites are visually appealing and intuitive from a User Interface standpoint.

  • Web Master

    Web masters are responsible for ensuring that a site stays up to date and is usable and well-maintained. They often oversee teams of designers and developers when working with larger companies. In the past, web masters were solely responsible for each element of a website, and this is sometimes still true for webmasters at small companies.
