Do you always need to use a grid when designing a website?

Just a quick question

Throughout the different CSS courses in treehouse, you build a website from scratch. However, I have noticed that most projects, within the course, are built without the use of a grid system.

My question is; is it imperative to use a grid system if you choose to work in an agency/studio?

I have built a few static websites for my own personal portfolio, yet, I have done so without the use of a grid. Is this considered bad practice, and will it affect my chances of getting a job as a front-end developer if I haven't built my portfolio with a grid in place?

If I remember correctly not all browsers are compatible with grid systems right now. We are learning it ahead of time & ned to also accomodate older browsers.
