What to do when free?
If you are still looking for a job and getting no offers, you can try learning something new that you can add to your profile.
- Start creating your own site -Most people look for applicants work or skills. Having your own site and showcasing your talent would help you get there fast.
Keep one page where you show your projects list that you have done already. Possibly with the live web links to see a demo.
- Create small projects on Github -Whatever your interest is, work on that and create some projects like frontend work, backend work, small web apps. It can be a simple one-page project.
- Keep your work online using free hosting services -Chances of getting a call from Companies will increase if you have put your work online.
Show demos of your work on some free tier services like glitch.com, firebase.io. For WordPress dev sites/demos, you can use pantheon.io
You can free tier services to host sites for demos here – https://github.com/ripienaar/free-for-dev#paas
Your knowledge and expertise will improve as you try to create demos of your work. The more the merrier.
Above things will give you enough confidence and knowledge to get into any start-up companies. Company doesn’t have to be big!
Remember – Life is not to get sad on what you couldn’t get. Learn to live life naturally. Keep working towards your goal, someday you will achieve it. Never Give Up!
