Designers for Hire

Here's something that might be useful. Let's start a reverse jobs post, where instead of posting available jobs, people that are looking for work make posts instead.

If you are looking, post your name, experience, and the nature of what you're looking for (type of work and part time or full time, in office or remote, etc.). Contact info is optional, someone can always click on your name to send a message.

(if you put contact e-mail, do something to it to disguise it from spam bots, like "myaddress ... at the following..." otherwise you'll be getting more offers for viagra and breat enhancements than you can imagine)

Follow this format:

Name: Your real name, first and last

Current Status: List your employer and position, or "freelancer" or the name of your business

Experience: List number of years only

Skills: General skills, like print, web, concepting, management

Programs: List the computer programs you are fluent in, like PhotoShop or Microsoft Office

Website: If you have a website, list it here

Contact: You may put contact info if you wish, but make sure you don't list a complete e-mail address (you will get spam if you do). Write something like "fred (at)"

Looking For: Specify if you are currently looking for work, how
much and what kind (full-time, part-time, freelance, etc.)

My goal here is to keep a running list of available talent, in the theory that clients (which do browse our site looking for designers, several have contacted me) will be able to more easily find someone they like.

BTW, I've edited my original post to make the format I'm looking for more clear. I think if we all stick to it, it will make it much easier for potential employers to find what they're looking for.

If you have already posted, please revise your listing when you get a chance.
