esotericgrip asked: Signed up on freelanship. What exactly is freelanship? Does it mainly offer advice regarding internships?
Freelanship is different things to different people based on one’s experience level. If you need experience we connect you with cheap, quality project-based internships and increase your skill set’s online visibility. If you have a full portfolio already then we decrease the time it takes to find you a job.
Do you think employers would be more likely to hire if I went in to fill in the application, or if I just apply online?
Definitely go in and apply. It shows initiative. Also, ask to speak with a decision maker - not the receptionist.
What is more important than lines on your resume? The pieces in your portfolio.
When I undertook my first internship, I did it because I thought it was what I should do. I missed a lot of valuable portfolio pieces and bullet points on my resume because I didn’t save the work I did or track the progress I was making.
Remember to keep track of the work you do at your internships so you can make an amazing resume AND have a full portfolio with valuable, real, major-related work.
Before I give you a list of the top resources for creating portfolios, here is a portfolio tip. At your internship, create a folder on your desktop called “portfolio.” In this folder, store everything valuable you do in PDF files. Then you can easily upload your pieces to one of these websites.
If you are looking for valuable and inexpensive experience related to your major then make sure you sign up for Freelanship at http://freelanship.com. The first 1,000 students to sign up will receive their first four months free.
Most students don’t have time for and/or cannot afford an internship(s).
Students had two options:
1. Pay their university hundreds of dollars for an experience opportunity, which may not teach them anything more than how to run coffee.
2. Don’t intern and add nothing to their resume.
Now, they have another. It’s Freelanship.
