Additional Links For Your Information
Do you like art, graphic design, web design, foreign language, journalism, or writing? You can post your own online portfolio on some of these sites and connect with other designers on others. Even if you are just into traditional art, there's a site for that. If you are an aspiring journalist or writer, again, there's a site for that. If you want a career as a translator, you guessed it , there's a site for that.
