*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦‍♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.

It can be frustrating to not get feedback from interviewers (in my experience I also haven't gotten responses to this question). That said, it sounds like you're onto the issue.

As a recent graduate, it's not too late to get your first internship. You will learn and grow, just make sure to find a paid one! It's a great way to open the door to potential full time employment. If you're willing to consider it, ask interviewers if it's the type of internship where there may be potential for a full time offer at the end if this fit is right.

That might look like the case but it’s not. Just email them your portfolio, as long as they can see potential, to most agencies it doesn’t matter whether you’re studying/graduated/self-thought. In-house is different

If you want you can dm me you portfolio for feedback. It all depends on whether your work fits the type of places you’re applying to , much more than experience or even quality of work (assuming you’re applying for right level jobs)

Neither did I! It takes time bit I would recommend researching firms you like and cold emailing. Ask for a zoom conversation or coffee whatever's easiest and don't expect a job opportunity. Conversations get the ball rolling.

I was discussing my recent job search with some friends and we got into a small debate. I stand firm on not wasting my time applying for a job that doesn't post the salary with the job description, anyone else do this? I feel like anytime I have interviewed for a job that didn't post the salary, they end up lowballing me during the offer phase.
