When you’re applying to jobs or sending your portfolio to folks, is there a good way to ask for more specific, actionable feedback? I’ve had a few people say they really liked my spec work, but without specifics I don’t know which areas to improve or which elements to double down on. Is there a way to loop back and ask for someone to elaborate on their feedback or do you just move on and hope the next person goes more in-depth?
