I just moved to a new city in a new country. This city, though, doesn’t excatly seem like a design hot spot but unfortunately moving is not an option for the moment (personal reasons). Nevertheless I’m quite keen on finding out what goes on here and on making contact with the few existing companies that I found.
There 2-3 companies which I was wanting to approach to ask for work, even an internship would be fine just to get me started somewhere. My initial idea was to stop by personally and try to talk to them (it is a rather small company). Even in the case of sounding arrogant, I think I’m better face-to-face than just sending off an email with a file attached.
I was wondering whether anyone has had some (positive) experience with this? What do I need to keep in mind when going there? Shall I bring my entire portfolio incase they are interested in seeing it, just samples or is my resumÃ© enough? To those who run their own businesses, how do you feel about applicants just showing up at your office’s door step?
Thanks for any insights, advise and shared experiences!
