“I Gained Some Incredible Experience”

Editor’s note: This is part of a series highlighting member stories.  Robert Sherrard is a chalkboard artist from Texas who uses SkillPages to find some extra work. 

For the last 20 years I’ve worked as a professional illustrator & designer, primarily in the sign industry. Currently I work as a graphic artist, using Adobe Illustrator as well as hand painting chalkboards.  I also like to do portraits, illustrations and all kinds of creative side projects.

SkillPages has been a great way of marketing myself to get a little extra work.  After joining and adding my skills, I was contacted by the marketing director for a well known food chain here in Dallas to do a series of murals for their restaurants.  He was looking for a chalkboard artist and thankfully he found me.

A Rewarding Project

I worked on a wine menu for them – it was one of the most difficult pieces I’ve ever done but the experience was incredible.  It was such a rewarding project and they were truly some of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with.

Based on my personal experience, anyone with a specialized niche can benefit greatly from being on SkillPages.  Many skills like mine are in very short supply and anything to get your skills out there and get found is a great help.

I think Skillpages is where some of the more savvy companies are searching for talent!

Success Stories: Designers, Demos and Dancers

Every day on SkillPages more and more people are finding skilled people or getting found for their skills.  As SkillPages caters for such a wide variety of skills each member has a unique experience and that’s why we love hearing their stories.  Below are just a few of the stories members have sent in recently.

Have Clients Approach You

Radoslav Angelov, a web designer and developer from England has found SkillPages a great source of income while he finishes his studies.  He didn’t even have to search for his first client, they approached him!

“I saw that other web developers had SkillPages accounts so I decided to try it myself and I’m glad I did.  I got a direct message from my first client.  Loads of people post job opportunities that are related to my skills and its very easy to apply for any of those jobs.  I would recommend SkillPages to anyone looking for job opportunities or people that want to find skilled people.”

Wide Variety Of Opportunities

Taylor Ray, a singer from Oldham in the UK came across SkillPages a few months ago when searching for new opportunities.  Since joining she has had numerous people approach her directly for a demo about a wide variety of opportunities:

“I have been given opportunities from performing at weddings, having my music on films and I even found a producer I will be gigging with.”

Taylor is now on SkillPages every day checking for new opportunities and recommends it to anyone looking for extra money or looking for a new job altogether.

Get Responses Quick

Daniel Morris, a musician from London recently used SkillPages to find skilled people by posting a free opportunity.  He was looking for dancers for his latest music video.  Within 3 days he had 30 applicants and was already hosting auditions.  Daniel was delighted with the response and found the same when he was looking for a photographer previously:

“I have had a good response from people and in such a short space of time, I even had an auditioning yesterday.  I had also recently placed an opportunity for a photographer and found someone that way, so Skillpages has been very helpful for moving my projects along.”
