Boise, Idaho, United States
Senior at Meridian Technical Charter High School
I received my ACA certification last year as a junior. I landed a position as a web developer and lead graphic designer at Social Eyes Marketing (getsocialeyes.com) due to my extensive experience in the Adobe software like Photoshop and Dreamweaver. As the lead graphic designer I have had the opportunity to make designs and websites for dozens of high caliber clients from places like Sweden and very well known local businesses.
I would definitely recommend obtaining your ACA certification if you’re computer literate at all. Even if you’re not going to get a degree pertaining to graphic design or web development, it is still very useful to be able to use the Adobe software suite, as it is the industry standard. Everyone is impressed at competence with Adobe products, even if the job doesn’t call for it.
