NO RATINGS
Q: This question is a bit off subject, but what is the job market like for an independent application designer? Is there a niche for the small business person?

 

A:  The problem is making contacts that lead to business.  It's a difficult road to travel unless you have a solid reputation and a lot of experience.  You're probably better off starting work with a company where you can learn on the job and then take those skills to your own business.  It's good to have that experience on your resume.  Whatever path you take, stay up to date on new technologies pertinent to your field.  These days It's easy to fall behind.
