I have registered as a freelancer and yet to start my career. In all the proposals, I have been questioned to showcase my skills(Mostly sql and PLSQL) with some sample work. I have no idea what kind of portfolio/sample work will be impressive and will also showcase my skills?
I have seen many front end developers' sharing applications/websites they have developed. But its not possible for a backend developer like me to display a database without a front end. To a person hiring, it might look like data (Lot of data) and nothing interesting. So when recruiter asks to show a sample of my work, what do I do? Just show them my queries or scripts might not interest a person. (Am I wrong?)
What kind of Sample should I present to the recruiters that will gain their attention?
