I don't mean to open up a crazy debate over this, but this is truly a question that I am seeking an answer for. You see, I do freelance graphic and web design on the side, and I am considering officially registering an LLC with New York State (where I live) to make the business official. To make a long story short, I was thinking about how other job markets run; engineers need to pass a final exam to be considered 'professional' as do teachers, lawyers etc. Is there a similar qualification to be considered professional to design and build websites? Or is it just a matter of having a registered business and having the ablility to do the work?
I'm just curious to where people draw the lines and such, and what other companies look for when hiring a person to design their corporate website.
Thanks in advance,
