I don't think knowing everything about Photoshop alone is enough to land a job unless you get a job printing PSD files or converting files. You must know the fundamentals of design as well. Like knowing how to prepare a file for printing especially. If you're going to design brochures, banners and etc, Photoshop is not the right tool for that. Photoshop can be use to photo manipulate though but there's not many jobs that needs photo manipulation unless you want to work as a image editor in a magazine or book/ebook cover designer. Those girls or maybe guys have facial and any flaws was remove through photo manipulation.You'll need Adobe Illustrator more for any design work because the image won't be pixeleted.

Well, I have been a web consultant and also been a career consultant. And those two professions do tell me that if you are a good Photoshop Designer - you have 50% chances of making it really big. The rest 50% rests on your creativity and its acceptance in the market just because this is a Creative field. And unlike the above responses, I can tell you from experience that if you are creative enough and know the Photoshop, there is plenty of work on the Internet and elsewhere too and I am sure if the lady luck is with you you will surely become rich soon.

If you're talking about Photoshop alone, it might not be enough for you to get a good job. Unless you want to become a Photoshop trainer, then you must know the software inside out. Why do you use Photoshop? There is something you want to achieve. Photoshop is just a tool that helps you in your work. Photo Editing might be a better choice in terms of career. You can learn how to edit photos with Photoshop. It is skill that is required by the publishing industry. Other than Photoshop, you might also want to look into other softwares such as Lightroom.

Well, my advice is you make your own design and sell it online .. Just selling your design in many design seller, such as graphicriver for example .. They are selling the best design and they selling you every single time people buy your design .. The money is depend how many design you put there .. If you put many you get many ..
