Help on this new website!

Yea, so my income's made a turn for the worst. I went from having a semi-descent income with a main breadwinner making $3400 a month to having a sucky income and now the breadwinner's moving out and I will have $1800 a month in bills I will be responsible for plus my children. So I need a good job...

I want to create a website - kind of as a job portfolio to help find a job. I want to bring potential employers to this website. What's the best way to create this website and how to market it? Now... this is in search of a real job working for someone, not my own business as income takes a while to generate from self employment.

Sorry to hear that! There are lots of internet resources on resumes and resume websites. Here is a link to a very good resume site that was done on yola: http://www.gracehm.com/ I also did one for a client here: http://www.christinajmarketing.com I think it's a good idea to think of yourself as a brand and what you have to offer the market. The usual SEO factors work here and also I would make business cards to hand to potential employers with the website address. This is a really tough thing and I wish you all the best!

yea, did you hear about the guy somewhere around the world (not sure, maybe France or something) who wore a sandwich board asking for a job and walked the streets and landed his dream job? Kinda the same concept but with a website - I don't feel like making the sandwich boards lol

yea, I've used MANY, MANY job finding sites and I apply for 30 or more jobs a week and not one single phone call.

I'm thinking with my own website searching for a job, it'll give the employer an insight to my creativity and skills I might be able to provide to their company. Building websites in themselves is an art and the nicer they look, most likely the better experience the person has with web design and html. Maybe I'll get lucky and I'll land a job as a web designer.

By the way, since I have about 15 months experience building my own website, do you think this is relevant and verifiable experience I can place on a resume?
