    Hello, I have a question

    I am a mid-level web designer.

    I know HTML//CSS//Photoshop//Can work with php scripts and code basic php scripts//Can use Jquery

    I also know my way around mysql databases.

    I am wondering what I could do to get my services out there. I really don't know how well my level applies to jobs so it's hard to look unless I'm trying to start something alone.

    A few things come to mind.

    first of all, there are newbies like me struggling to get some selective website cloning sorted (though I am bad target as almost no budget), however there are a few posts in here I guess where people wouldn't object to paying for some practical help - perhaps have a little info in your sig as to what you can do might help?

    If on facebook, look to see what css / photoshop / coding groups there are - all will be free to join and most welcome groups are happy enough for a member to OCCASIONALLY remind group members of their skill base and that they are wanting work.

    As for your level, you might find the 80/20 rule applies - 80% of the work you undertake will need probably only 20% of your skillbase - it is the 20% of really fiddly stuff that will be the most demanding. In other words, don't worry about what level you reckon you are at - if you are offered work you are not happy you can handle you can always decline it - or sell it on.

    A decent website with a bit of SEO work done so that folks who are googling for "CSS help" or "freelance coding" can find you.

    Lastly, google for other programming forums which have a "skills for hire" page - usually free for a link and a few words.

    Lastly googling for "css forum jobs" brought up http://www.webdesignerforum.co.uk/ which have a "looking to hire" forum which might just be worth a look.

    Kind Regards

    So most of it will just be css and html and graphics type stuff?

    I suppose you are right. I'll give the link a try and see if I can get anything.

    I have to pay for all the services though. That was the case last time I tried this. But you answered my question atleast.

    I think I am going to just become a cook. That's realistic.

    Would rather offer what I can do at the moment and just hope someone is interested in being offered all the tools lol
