Hey Mike! Great video! I have an interview tomorrow for an internship at a local small web design firm. I will definitely use these tips! Thank you for sharing your experience with us aspiring designers!
Some great advice. I’m job hunting by doing some local footwork and introducing myself and services to local businesses. Confidence is definitely important as I am learning. Going to use these tips as well. Thanks Mike.
Kris, glad you found these tips useful. I think you’re doing a good thing going door to door. Its all about the hustle. You’re in Maui so there may not be tons of tech designer jobs available. But what is available are tons of small local businesses. So that’s where I see a huge opportunity for you.
Great advice! Also like to add that people can see the passion in what you do and that you truly enjoy your work!
Thanks Mike, Really helpful because I’ve got and interview coming up and I’m in the process at simplifying my portfolio. Like the idea about going a bit extra with sales pitch and follow up email idea…Sound Advice!
@Ron – Yes, passion also helps. You don’t have to be over excited but don’t be boring, quiet, etc.
@Sanj – Good luck with your interview. Yes, the sales pitch can only help you in the end.
