Looking for your next job in Web Design? Here are our top tips…
1. Is your portfolio the best it could be? Make sure you keep your portfolio fresh, always update it with new work and projects. If you think your portfolio is a little shy on something that you know you’re capable of - create your own project in your spare time and share it on there too. This will ensure your full range of skills is shown, making you all the more employable.
2. Widen your skills to give you an extra edge. If you’re strictly front-end for example, can you do some research to demonstrate an understanding of back-end development too? It’s not essential, but there is always room to improve!
3. Don’t neglect your CV! You’re likely to have spent hours working on your portfolio which is great, but that doesn’t mean you can get away with having a poor CV. Remember the basics, ensure all the relevant information is on there, and make sure its easy to digest. You can read our full advice on how to master the CV here.
