As college students we tend to have thin portfolios and light wallets, so we need to look outside of the classroom. Sure, part time work can help, and internships are key to our success, but there are a few small things that we can be benefit from for cash and experience purposes.
crowdSPRING is an online marketplace where businesses come to search for creatives, designers, and writers for which they can outsource their branding, development, and advertising work to. crowdSPRING works as such; make an account, search for projects based on skill (writing/design/creative), and start working. Competition is strong on this site, but you have nothing to loose and a lot to gain by participating in these projects. Consider it a freelance job. You can work on a piece, put it in your portfolio, and if you get picked, you get paid!
Even if your project isn’t picked, you still have the experience of working on a real project and coming up with a solid idea, something you should be continuously practicing throughout your career. crowdSPRING celebrates creativity in individuals all over the world, so you don’t need to be a top business professional in the industry, you can be a student working towards their career who just needs a little experience in brainstorming and idea execution.
