A famous book (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Catch-22) started this well known ‘logical conundrum’, and this week, one of these situations has got Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) stumped.
Over the last few months, I was looking for a copywriter to join my team.
As you can imagine I looked at the lot of folios before finding right person
What I want to talk to you about today, is something I think you need to think about in regard to your hunt for a creative position.
Putting your folio online.
You see I can’t decide whether or not it’s actually a good idea.
So am I.
You see most of the people who got in touch with me about the job sent me a link to view their folio.
Which meant that I reviewed their work rather than interviewed them for the job.
And those that I did interview were generally unable to show me anything new as I had already seen their folio online.
It’s a catch-22 situation for which I do not have an answer.
And it’s something I think you need to think about in your hunt for a job.
