Where to find orders to a novice designer?

I know that this question was many times, but it is the fear of a beginner. Six months studying design, self-taught, have more trust in books than courses. But took courses from the Mail EN I'm not sure about the level of their work, and whether this level is generally to go freelance. My portfolio: https://www.behance.net/sanek152530781

Plans to work in the company on a permanent basis. Came in for an interview, said that everything is fire, but there I have already had problems, had to be abandoned. I leave applications on the Freelance PY and Freelancin but received no answers, so I think that we must continue to learn , and not to go. Would like to know how you passed this stage, and where better to find at the initial stage customers? Thank you!

1. Orders are never searched quickly. Alas, from the beginning of the search before my first order a little over a week. On then freelancing.ru was better than it is now.

2. If you are one of those designers who took the course and wrote the sky-high price tags, thinking that he TRU-designer, the orders you will find (unfortunately this time never able).

3. The level of your work is not the fire, but not miserable. You have work to do. First draw not only layouts, but also the interfaces. All your work is quite pleasing to the eye, but it just matched normal picture and some no net. I as a person who sometimes watches the designers is not enough, some ideas, some details, to which I drew attention. In your case just text and pictures. It's not bad, but you need to show people something more profound.

4. It is obvious that all of your work from the portfolio or courses drawn, or something, for training of course will do, but the customer I would I would like to see something real in our segment of the Runet. That is, the layouts that could be used directly in production. Now you, like half of behance with dribla, just beautiful layouts, but they do not perform their functions. Try to take and solve any problem (see the cases of the top studios), offer your solutions.

5. I would recommend you continue to replenish the portfolio, from time to time looking for orders. Search of orders in the beginning this is probably the most difficult and boring, but then easier when the customer base is. But don't forget about the practice and quality improvement in their skills.
I don't consider myself Trusnik designer and courses( in the broadest sense of the word) are not passed. Rather, it was online lectures on the theory of the design from the Mail, and read a lot of books.
About the interface, I understand all the "card catalog" to "menu" "Forms" etc.?
Thanks for the feedback, I'm trying to move away from Bianca and Drible, and look more or less professional cases. - Gilberto_Nikolaus14 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:05
Totally agree with Alex, one thing I want to add that I have seen different and I am sure that you can sell your time, but only cheaper than the other members of the profession. And various courses - learn them, it's interesting, not necessarily paid, full and free on YouTube. Good luck to you! - Chelsie.OReil commented on March 12th 20 at 08:08
@Gilberto_Nikolaus14, don't listen to these comrades. People wrote about "pictures and text" but his all the same. And pathetic. You have to be completely devoid of understanding of the composition, to sculpt this shit. And he's wrong again that the orders are searched for a long time. Loads of orders on the Russian market, you need to be proactive.

Likely my advice you will not help, because you talk like a loser. But let me give a couple of recommendations:

1) Stop whining
2) are there No customers? He become a customer. Take any niche and do a "perfect niche" site about how to implement it written in my answers. And then go and sell it. Do funnel.
3) If you talk like a goof (and you talk like a goof), then you do not do anything above average. I don't understand what's wrong with you guys. There is YouTube, there is Google, there is a list of top studios and medium. What's the problem, assemble the website from different pieces of websites? You will get a good option that is easy to adapt yourself.
4) If you are 95% of the market it does not mean that it is impossible to find IMMEDIATELY and without experience. My first order I took them without a portfolio of 70 thousand rubles in 2017. I came to the client with a solution, asked for a meeting. Got rejected 30 times, telephoned, sent, came to the street offices. Why did not you? Because you're comfortable to work on someone, under the wing of some artdire not take responsibility.
5) Begin to edit text, learn to write
6) Study all possible components of interfaces and principles of their use
7) the really useful links in my answers - sadye.VonRued commented on March 12th 20 at 08:11
@Chelsie.OReil, Yes free I've seen, there is continuous water and basic theory. - Gilberto_Nikolaus14 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:14
@sadye.VonRued, thank you so much! - Gilberto_Nikolaus14 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:17
