I'm new here. I've been browsing tons of forums for an idea of what to do. I was laid off from my job about 3 month ago. I've been looking for a job since then, but did not even get a single interview. I worked as a web designer for a publishing company for the last 5 years. Looks like mbx.streetofeyes.com is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "Guardians Party EX" category is not the most appropriate for this question, but I want to try anyways to get some opinions before I go ahead with my life. I'm wondering if it is possible in the current economy to find work for a freelance web designer and make enough to pay for rent and groceries. I was able to find a small project on craigslist and I developed a website for a company. It was a small project and took me only a week to complete. I got paid $800 for 1 week of work which is not bad. Please people give me some ideas. I have 2 kids and my wife is out of work as well. Thank you in advance.
You are right this is absolutely wrong place. I'd like to help you if I can. I got much less money for a week, indeed it is more like my month money, well, close there. And I unfortunately don't know nothing about web designer work. I can only say, that I was unemployed many time, and I work all I got. I don't know how it is in your county, but in mine, every day more houndreds workers loose their jobs. I believe that it is hard, but I can only wish you to fast find new job.
Or at least better place for such questions.
