Hello kelsey my name is Cornelius from thebingbing. We're looking for students such as yourself to recraft our experience at the bingbing as portfolio work. We'd be able to give you a good review on LinkedIn and endorse you for whatever you'd like. Please feel to reach out to me if you're interested in this opportunity!
What an opportunity! I’ve always wanted to work for free.
endorse you for whatever you'd like
Even things you didn't do for us for free! Legit!
Not everyone is at the same point in their career.
Free work on commercial projects, sometimes referred to as “exploitation” or “violation of federal labor law”, is not part of a career.
Nobody can make better decisions for myself than I can. How much I need for work is one of them.
Can I get your email? I'd love some free work from you.
I'm past that point in my career now :)
DN, bring back the downvote button please. Thanks.
This is ok i guess but i'd pass over you in a second if i was looking to fill a position. Your social links are great and all but it gives me no indication of the work you do. This is exactly why I keep trying to tell young designers to just use cargo collective or Squarespace when you are getting started... Even Dribbble! Show me work.
This way you can spend time crafting the mostest perfectest portfolio on the side and it won't impact career/growth/paying opportunities.
In the meantime, I would consider putting a simple statement on the page along the lines of "To see samples of my work, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Totally, thanks Benjamin. Like you mention, I should change the wording so more viewers understand it's a placeholder.
Great minds think alike :) My site: http://simonwallstrom.com/
Kelsey, I like the simplicity and the subtle changing color border. Clean and simple.
Do you not have time to even show a single piece of work?
This is dope. Good job Kelsey!
This is great, good job.
Yea I like the subtle border color changes as well. The only thing I'd suggest is centering the text throughout. Liking it though.
I guess that margin is a thing now. Saw this the other day: http://www.ericportelance.com
It's not a new trend at all.
Thank you for clarification.
Hah, sorry if that was a bit terse!
No, it was amazing.
This looks lovely (and very in vogue) but what kind of feedback are you looking for? Content is most important in a portfolio's presentation and is what drives the hiring decision when looking for a role. As a personal brand, this placeholder page looks polished, just bare.
