    I haven't had the complete experience of actually assisting a web designer or web master.

    I am currently a web assistant for a PBS station. This TV station has a graphic designer and a web master who manages their server. Additionally, web-savvy employees are able to post new information to the website because it was built using a CMS.

    Therefore my experience is limited to researching web content for their TV productions, writing biographical information using Joomla and Ning (CMSes the web master already installed), inserting metatags in video files and editing images. Most of this work took only a few hours and the rest of the work week was spent doing administrative projects. I feel like I can do more!

    If I applied for an assistant position at a web design company (although it depends on what that company specializes in), what would I be expected to do for 15-20 hours a week, Starbucks runs included? How could I convince management that I would be an asset?

    Thanks

    You're not a web design assistant, because you're not assisting with web design.

    You're a web content writer.

    If you want to learn more about web design, and move up into a more technical position, take it upon yourself to learn more. Learn photoshop, learn HTML, learn CSS, etc.

    No company will hire a content writer as a web designer. They're different fields.
