Carrer Path - the next step in the Web..

By lindafitzwater ·
I've wanted to be a web master, so in the past, I've took a job as a
webmaster in training. Now that I'm a webmaster of excellence (with killer
graphics skills), I've wanted ecommerce experience. So, I've learned
ColdFusion and am currently working on a B2B ecommerce web site. Now, I
want to learn how to do wireless web development. I'm still learning all
there is about XML, XHTML, XSL, etc. to do this. Who is willing to take on
an experienced webmaster that can do asp/ColdFusion ecommerce/XML and
stunning graphics so she can pickup that latest in wireless web? (Also,
just bought the only book on programming the wireless web.)

Thanks for your time! Please do advise....

Carrer Path - the next step in the Web..

Based on your proven ability to learn new skills and apply them successfully - all geared around a concerted strategy to maintain relevancy in the market - I think you stand a very good chance of finding independent contracting opportunities.

I highly recommend sites like FreeAgent,, Aquent Partners, PEN Group, and Cruel World among many others that allow you to present your credentials and type of work you seek. Then companies needing project, temporary or contract help can contactyou to arrange mutually acceptable terms.

I have had very good success with most of these sites. I've been surprised at the quality of organizations using these as ways of supplementing acute staffing needs. In addition, it helps you select projects that build the type of career you wish to present going forward as well as open you to new ventures and experiences you might not consider in permanenet situations.

This is a good time for an independent approach and your background indicates it may work well for

I have looked at these sites and have found to be the best. I've had only one client from contact me that resulted in work. Guru seems to be better on the off site work supply, which is what I'm currently hunting for.
