Good evening, I hope that all is well.
I'm a newbie web developer, and I'm looking to expand my skills as an employee at a company. I've dabbled in things that can be interconnected in this field, and I'm looking at seeing if I can make them work.
My biggest weakness is that I have no way to present all of this information to employers without totally freaking them out. For some reason, they assume that I'm going to leave Michigan to be a rich novelist in Spain tomorrow. I'll admit that I have written copy ads for companies in Spain, but they haven't invited me to move out there yet, trust me. If I dumb my resume down, I get no response. If I put my website full of Spanish on my resume, I'll stand out, but then the employers tend to chicken out towards the end of the hiring process. I've been told that working in an office would stifle my creativity, even though I have years of administrative assistant experience with an emphasis on bookkeeping. (<_<) So, here I am, tapping into the more creative aspects of my skillset and hoping that it sticks.
I'm not picky about status or salary, so feel free to contact me with project ideas. My mind is open, and so is my laptop. Let's kick a few ideas around this field of possibilities, shall we?
