There are several programs that designers have to keep up with in order to be successful in their prospective careers. Otherwise, if a designer is not up to speed with a certain program, they may fall behind. In addition, by keeping themselves educated, students will be ahead in school and more prepared than most when entering the job market, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Some programs that may be worth checking out are Google SketchUp, which is a 3-D modeling program that allows individuals to build their designs from scratch. Also, the Adobe Creative Suite is a popular program among schools, and becoming familiar with it before entering the field can give a student a leg up. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite allows a student to touch up and edit photos with ease, the media outlet reports.

Individuals who are interested in graphic design may be able to land a job once they exit their education programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 13 percent between 2008 and 2018.
