Why starting an internship or freelance project?

Previous experience makes everything, you need to be able to add some into your resume to look better, and this is an example of how your freelance job could look like:

Strive to create visually appealing sites that feature user-friendly design and clear navigation.

☝️ DO NOT COPY AND PASTE, please customize it, use different words, different technologies and programming languages that you like, you can talk about eCommerce apps, edTech, you can mention particular industries that you like.

If your final project was a game, you can say you are specialized in building games with HTML/CSS/Javascript/Python. If it was a social network than you are specialized in building "social apps", etc. If it was a tutoring site, you can say you are focused on edTech.




Enhance previous projects:

Enhanced versions of some of the projects you built at the academy, for example:

  • Starwars Reading List: You can make this a social reading club, everyone has a password and shares they favorites.
  • Contact List: Make the contact list a CRM, basically you add a "status" to each contact and then the sale people can change the contact status based on the sale process.
  • Todo List: Todos don't need to have just two status: Done or Not done, you can make them have several like: Not doing, Doing, Done, Approved, Rejected, etc. That will make your todo list a project management tool with stages.

Each of your projects must have:
