Even though I’ve been happily employed with Sociable Labs for a while now, I still get fairly frequent calls and emails from people who want to know if I’m available or I “know someone.” The list of people I know is starting to run short, so this post is intended to remedy that.
If you are an individual Web Designer or Web Developer interested in work, please post a comment below.
What to post:
- Your name and website in the appropriate fields. I disabled WordPress’s
rel="nofollow"just for you.
- A short bit about yourself and your experience.
- Where you’re located, and if you would consider relocating for work.
- What type of work you’re interested in: freelance / short-term contract (3-6 months or less), long-term contract, employment, startup, etc.
- This is your first impression to potential clients: Copy-paste it into Word and read it out loud once or twice. Get it right the first time because you can’t edit comments after you’ve posted them.
- Contact information: any phone number or email address posted here will be picked up by spammers.
- A basic solution is to just post a .jpg on your website with your phone number and email.
- A better solution could be a contact form like this one: How to build a spam-free contact form without captchas
- One or two links to your GitHub, LinkedIn, or recent work is fine, but be warned that my WordPress marks anything with more than 3 links as spam, and it’s hidden until I get around to checking the spam filter.
- Lastly, this is my website, and I may choose to edit or delete comments. For example, if you claim 10+ years experience with jQuery, your comment will be deleted. (JQuery was released in 2006)
Thanks and best wishes with your future work!
