    I have the perfect project for you ...

    See this:
    Some sort of dynamically sortable database framework?

    You should help that new WDF member with his website project. Maybe you could help with the PHP part.

    yes, it sounds like a database within WordPress and a graphical user interface (GUI) with some sliders and such.

    You really don't get it, dude. You can't just say "build a category X site and it will attract Y potential employers". That implies that all sites in a particular category are created equally, and it also implies that every site category has a certain number of employers that are looking to hire you because you have experience building that site.

    Nothing...nothing...could be further from the truth. You want to find employers and figure out something to build that will attract them? Build a site that works, attracts attention, makes money, and show that to them. That requires you to apply knowledge and think independently, and those are two things you absolutely refuse to do.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    I know, eh? It destroys just about every economic theory we were taught in school!

    Forgive my sarcasm. It wasn't a dumb question.

    Try to think about it like any other market. How many products come out in a market that flop before the right one comes along? Consider smart phones.
    The iPhone wasn't the first. It wasn't even the first fully touch-based smartphone. Blackberry had touch-based smartphones before it, there were touch-based windows phones before it. The difference was, Apple not only spent a lot of time creating hype about the iPhone, but more importantly, they built it to solve a very specific set of "problems". In other words, instead of trying to push a new device that people didn't feel they needed, Apple created a device that people felt like they needed, because it solved their device-based problems.

    That's what design is. Not even just web design, but design. Solving problems. Let me teach you a lesson I learned by getting kicked in the face on these very forums: Web design isn't about making information pretty. Again, it's about solving visual and interactive problems.

    So, I said all that to say, if you're going to create example work, solve a real-world problem. Maybe the website for a cause you believe in sucks. Solve that problem. Maybe you're tired of dealing with comment spam on your personal site. Solve that problem. Maybe you like cars, but none of the sites you currently visit quite hit the niche you and your buddies are into. Solve that problem. Whatever you do, build your portfolio by solving problems, not slapping together a generic site for an imaginary company.
