Mike Davidson has updated a post from 2004 to help you out of work designers get a job. It’s kind of gratifying to see how he hires because, although I’m not looking for a job, and although I’m not a designer, the things I’ve done represent me much better than the things on my resume.
-Is the stuff in your portfolio well designed and in keeping with the creative style Iâ€™m looking for?
-Are you a cool person to work with?
-Do I know anyone personally or professionally who can vouch for you being a cool person to work with?
Everything else? Doesnâ€™t matter.
What can you do, and who do you know?
