Depending on the specialization a would-be graphics designer has, they require computer hardware that can handle some of the heftier software and applications needed to bring their ideas to life.


  1. Psychologist and/or Mental Health Counselor


If helping others proves to be your calling, psychology and counseling may be for you. Obtaining a four-year bachelor’s degree remains the minimum requirement for entry into this field, with the most dedicated acquiring at least a master’s degree or even a PhD or PsyD.
