I’m in the process of taking screenshots of websites I’ve worked on for my portfolio. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to just point to URLs and say I did “X” on “Y” site for many of them.
Now the question is, do I build my portfolio online, as a CD-ROM, as a printed piece, or as some combination of the three?
Honestly, I really don’t feel like working on it this weekend, but I need to be able to give examples of my work to prospective future employeers.
In other news, I had a quick initial interview with a company Thursday evening. I’m expecting a phone call from them Monday. I think things went well, as I was asked to keep next Thursday open for a possible follow-up interview. I’ve also sent my resume to a few other places in the area, and I’ve posted it to a couple online job sites.
A couple people have suggested that I take a few days off (a week or two) as a little vacation before I start stressing out over a job search. Good advice, and I have done that in the past – but it’s a little hard to do so when you not only did not get a severance package, but you also did not receive a final paycheck. (Whether I even get that is up to a judge now, I guess.)
In other, other news, someone’s been using my SSN to commit unemployment insurance fraud, which I found out when I filed my claim Thursday afternoon.
I guess I better get back to my screen shots. It’s kind of hard to keep typing with a cat draped across one’s fore-arms.
