How to be hired and get money even as a student while you are freelance in the way that I do?.
Well I leave here some tips on how to make it happen while you’re still a student.
For most students first, second or third year, found a part-time or even like a job is somewhat frustrating and somewhat near impossible and many end up as anything else to work less in design, anyway there is still hope. I am living proof that a student can get a job in design while still studying this and there are some more like me too so here I leave my tips.
The problems most students face is that they do not have enough range of skills necessary to be a professional designer as well as a portfolio of no reputation or knowledge of how to deal with clients, budget or time management, and are still trying to find how to use the pen tool in photoshop. Let an e vistaso these problems.
NO BASIC SKILLS REQUIRED:
This is of course, why we’re in college … to learn these skills. Anyway, you’re not just a static student in college, you must impulsarte yourself to learn more and be the leader of the group. You must be active in the design forums and find some others that can integrate and participate more as an apprentice and have the ability to help others, read about design and blogs like this Freelancing well in these, or provide books (never lose them to pickpockets jeje), and ask leave of the ordinary that you learn in college. Go to any design firm and ask if they would give you the opportunity to work with them not just as a normal job, if not as work experience, I did some time and then I got not only a good place and if not fixed all the bonuses This means, starting from the bottom is not too bad besides the work experience is a bonus to your resume, was a great experience and learned a lot about customers and time management while I did this. These few steps will help you enhance your basic skills from below.
NO COMPUTER SKILLS:
Your computer skills need to be a successful designer and a good way is to acquire these skills by reading tutorials, books and of course practice. Reading tutorials and books you want more knowledge of the software and get improvement as a designer. Seeking first first-hand experience of another professional designer, a good way of doing this is looking for people currently working in the middle and you know, there will always be someone who can help you. Another thing I did was get stock items initially misused but then learned to disarm them as they were made to see these images. View a composition from scratch and build another in mind as this was done first is a good way to get you the skills you need, that I finally opened up a whole new world. And finally, practice, practice, practice.
PORTFOLIO WITHOUT AN reputation:
Each designer must start somewhere and all the designers started with nothing, so we are not alone. build your portfolio is probably the most important thing you do on the uinversidad so that’s how you get a job out of this. The portfolios are a topic in themselves, as you can assemble your own with a fictitious briefs. The design studios or agencies are not really concerned if your work is real or not while it is quality, believe me.
NO KNOWLEDGE ABOUT CUSTOMERS OR HANDLING TIME:
Nearly all designers are graduates of this skill shortage. Here is where experience is key here and there is no better way to get some experience in working practices in any place where work in design, just mention that you are a student of graphic design and want to learn new things. Working in these places you can learn all about how to deal with customers, time management and design industry, have any idea.
GET CLIENTS OR WORK:
Here comes the hard part. After you feel confident to go out and offer your services as freelance or go to a design studio at the university, you should start looking for jobs and customers. I wrote an article on how to seek work earlier, and some other things to customers and as a freelance. Find more in the blog that you help some of the items.
