What type of skills would i need to get a job in website design?
I'm constantly looking for ads from companies that need website designers and it seems like I know everything I already need to know to design a website (I've already made several of them just for fun). I've got advance computer skills, a freakishly fast typing speed (although I'm guessing that isn't very important), it's easy for me to learn to use new programs, I know a pretty good amount of HTML, I'm really good with computers in general, and I LOVE designing websites. Problem is I'm not sure if that's enough... It's kind of like I'm missing some advance skills. So what kind of skills would an employer expect me to have?

There really isn't all that much to web design. Obviously the more you know, the more valuable you are. I would recommend at a minimum an understanding of HTML, PHP, Perl, MySQL and Java Script. Skills with graphics and tools like Adobe Flash are also a benefit.
