Is this my job?

Most of the job postings I’ve seen for graphic designers list HTML and/or CSS skills under the qualifications. I think to myself, after years of studying graphic design, how am I not qualified for an INTERNSHIP, an opportunity to learn more about my profession?? My simplified definition of graphic design is type plus image. As far as I know our job as graphic designers is to use software to create and implement graphic elements onto a template. My diploma will read Bachelor of the Arts, not Science and Technology. Isn’t it someone else’s job to code the information for the siteĀ  after I design it? I agree that HTML coding would be a nice accessory to have as a designer, but I do not believe that it should be a requirement.
