If a portfolio falls in the forest …

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:

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?
