    I can definitely relate. I'm 18 years old, and working at a large software company (~400 employees), and have worked my way up over time. I started here as an intern when I was 16, and at 18 was hired in full-time.

    All of that was really great advice, and totally accurate. Well done, Devin.

    Personally, I believe there are some things that people are just born with. A sense of design, or usability are a couple of those. I was hired into a large (400+ employee) software company at the age of 16, and I am currently 18 and now working full-time.

    It's all about your skill level. School may be the right route for some people, and it might not be the right route for others. Personally, it doesn't look like I'll be going to school. I receive 5-10 job offers per month from my website and Dribbble alone.

    Good points. I especially agree with "Have reasons for everything.", that's a very good way to stay objective. I've found if I can't justify why I've done something, it's usually open to debate.
