There's a job opening at ZeStuff.com for a freelance web/graphic designer. I'm going to send in my resume, seems like it'd be a fun gig. I haven't really had many chances to design for commerce-heavy websites, and it's one aspect of design I've always wanted to delve into a bit more.
Delve is a funny word.
Anyway, I always feel as though it's a bit of a hopeless endeavor to apply for these jobs that get posted on wildly popular websites. I mean, there are what, three gazillion web designers wandering around out there in search of work? And at least 99% of them read ctrl+alt+del, so now we're looking at 2.97 gazillion people I'd be competing with for this job. And there's a damned good chance that at least one of those 2.97 gazillion designers is just a teensy bit better than me. And honestly, I don't like those odds one bit. That's a 1-in-2.97-gazillion chance I'll get hired, for those poorly-versed in the mathematic sciences.
But I keep trying anyway.
