    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

    Where abouts are you located? I know I am looking for a position in Alberta, but if I do come across anything that is out of my league or area, and into yours, I will send it your way! Even the ones no where near yeah!

    Sorry to hear about the struggles, but I can diffently see where you are coming from... almost in the same boat. Still considering a career in ditch digging myself....

      You could get a job delivering pizzas for instant cash while you look for a GD job/set up freelance company. It's a real drag to lose your job. Don't worry, man, you'll find something.

        Sorry to hear that D-Frag, I'll cast out my lines up here in boston, and see what I can find. Some openings, any particular industry you want in on. some of the gaming industry is up here, also check out the different localized Craiglist jobs, I know each city has a seperate list of creative jobs, there is no one giant list

            also Joe is great for some reason at finding jobs. I'm sure he is out today bc of hurricane damage but as soon as he gets back you might ask him as well...or I'm sure he will see the thread. There isn't much my way here in Savannah since SCAD pops out designers left and right but I will let you know if I come across anything at all ok!!

              thx everyone, ive already searched craigslist.

              Jeff, im in Arizona, but im willing to move anywhere, preferebly a job in advertising, marketing....traditional design, NO WEB.

              probably will get a job delivering pizzas....my car is a POS though, so who knows if I wanna go that route. I hear smuggling people pays pretty well here, i might look into that.....

                        Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

                            My graphics school hired someone who had just come out of their program. Didn't really speak english all that well, no teaching degree...possibly no degree at all. Not a very good teacher either. So there's always a chance!
                            Try googling it next time...

                              check out the teaching thing. for serious. even part time. check out those 'international art academy' and technical schools.

                              also, what about technical consultant at a uni? i know the tech-dudes at my uni could keep the computers going with paper-clips and chewing gum, but knew next to nothing about the programs we were using and would've loved someone to run interference with the students.
