Finding a job in any field, including graphic design, is difficult in this economy. Accordingly, it is important to take advantage of every opportunity. Carina Joneit of Stittsville, Canada had her chance to do so when she was asked to work alongside a professional graphic designer and create her own book, according to EMC Stittsville/Richmond.

The recent high school graduate was introduced to the job after helping out on a banner for her town. The inspirational short book, which was called Your Life... You Can Make a Choice Simplicity, took Joneit on a five-month journey through the beginning stages of graphic design to the printing process.

"I really am in awe and so grateful about the whole experience, from the moment that I was first taught how to use the software to now," she told the newspaper.

Joneit plans on attending college this fall to continue her education in graphic design. Degree seekers who are in her position have several programs around the world from which to choose. In the U.S. alone, there are nearly 300 institutions that have been approved by The National Association of Schools of Art and Design, according the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
