I want a job in web design, but am just wondering, with the recession and the employers' preferences for teen graduates with 2 yrs commercial experience, is it really worthwhile trying to get a job in this field?

I love designing websites and have a diploma, with a merit, in web design. However, I don't know what my chances of employment would be.

Also, some experts say I should not spread myself too thin by trying to learn PHP, ASP etc. on top of my front end HTML skills. Do you all agree?

I have tried to get a job in ordinary admin and retail, but because the competiton is much to high for each vacancy, I thought I would try consolidating my web design knowledge with a view to getting a job in that field.
