In my last blog I mentioned that I would be creating a website for my portfolio. Well, I actually finished it, but it took longer than I was expecting. The most stressful part of creating the website was finding all the files from previous projects. I made the mistake of saving files to multiple flash drives instead of one. I had 5 flash drives, 1 TB passport, and 3 SD cards to search through for my files. I believe I spent more time searching for files than I did compiling everything on the website. I can say I’ve stayed more organized with my school work in the last year. Creating this website did teach me one thing, and that is keep everything as organized as possible so it’s easier to find later on. The reason I took the time to make a website was solely for the purpose of job applications. The website includes my school work and also personal projects I completed outside of school.
Since I made this online portfolio for job applications, I’ll talk about the places I’m looking into. My first area of interest is Texas. My brother currently lives in Conroe, Texas now, so I’ve found six firms in that area I’m going to apply to. My second area of interest is in the St. Louis area. Since my parents only live an hour from St. Louis it would allow me to stay close to home. Other places I’m looking into are: Chicago, Colorado, Florida, California, New York, and Hawaii.
I have created a mobile and desktop version of my site. The mobile version contains a few glitches that I can’t fix (Images rotated incorrectly). Although both versions will work, the desktop version is easier to navigate through. If you are interested in viewing my website, click this link: www.ethan-brammeier.com
