It’s officially 2016, and you’ve updated your resume with new positions and new technologies. You’ve done the same with LinkedIn and even earned a few more recommendations. That online portfolio you’ve been meaning to do for a while now is complete. Interviews are taking place, and offers are starting to roll in. You’re on your way to achieving the goals you set for yourself for 2016. So how do you select the right project to achieve your goals? Before signing that contract, consider these key areas.
Technology: part of creating your goals included selecting projects that exposed you to new technologies. If you’ve traditionally worked on projects developing in Captivate with a Moodle LMS, then look for projects that allow you to work with a different LMS, like Cornerstone or Lectora. You may have to compromise on your rate or location, but ultimately it will be worth it to learn a new skill.
