Top tip: When you’re interviewing designers, look at their portfolio

Posted on: July 15th, 2009 | Category: Design

I’ve been in the “internet” industry for quite some time now and I am still amazed by the amount of managers who don’t even bother to look at the portfolio of the designers that are applying for a design-job.

All they do is look at the skillset and the companies these people used to work for. We all know most people lie on their resume, so why do most managers don’t even require an online portfolio and just go with a bunch of text?

Even more amazing is the fact that a lot of so-called webdesigners that are applying for a job don’t even have an online portfolio (and believe me, I have seen many of them).. Hey.. newsflash.. if you are a webdesigner and you don’t have an online portfolio don’t even bother to apply at the company I work for..

I doesn’t even have to be the world’s most stunning portfolio, just a quick overview of your work is enough. A quick way to get your portfolio up and running in no time is to use Indexhibit. Get’s the job done – and quick.
