It doesn’t matter how great a portfolio is if it’s not in front of someone who can hire you.
At the risk of stating the obvious
Putting a great portfolio in front of someone that can hire you
Is what lands you gigs
Freelance or fulltime
See if this helps:
If you’re looking to get hired by an agency
Be it a marketing or advertising type
Start a consistent email
And ask for feedback on that email
From a creative director
Or anyone at an agency
Who can hire you
And then keep those emails
P.S. Reply for deets on exactly how to do this. If you already know how to do this – and I have a feeling you do – will you reply and let me know how it goes?
