It happens a lot from what I've seen.
When I was looking for a regular in-house role a while back (while my wife went back to study) I'd see the same jobs adversed over and over again with the same recruiters.
A few of them over periods of years.
They do it to increase their banks of applicants at slow times.
I once applied for a non-design job years ago as I wanted to get out of the house a bit during the Summer months and I was asked down for an interview right away.
I got there and found it to be an agency and they started asking me about my driving licence and stuff not connected to the job.
When I asked them about the job I'd applied for they started to look a little sheepish.
I then asked them if the job I'd applied for actually existed to which they looked a bit uncomfortable and started to look around the room.
After that I was getting calls from them all the time asking if I could go do a few hours delivery driving here and there until I told them to F-Off.

I've been asking pretty much the same question on another forum as I don't know shit about the subject but I get a lot of suggestions but it boiled down to the fact I was best sticking with my current host.
I use http://www.thelittlechimpsociety.com/hosting/ who are offer dedicated hosting to creatives and it works out at £20 per year for hosting (£30 if you want to register your domain name with them).
Never had a problem and they're SUPER helpful if your lacking in knowledge like me.
I think they're quite a small set up but it shows in the quality of their support.
I also checked out portfolio sites like Behance Pro and Cargo which look good and have portfolio templates.

@Scotty - It's not really obvious but if you hover over your avatar and go to Account Settings from the drop down, then go to the Invitations tab. The tab will have the number of invites you have next to it, e.g. Invitations (1).
The other way is if you click on a prospect's profile and you have invites there will be a Draft button at the top of the screen somewhere.

Cheers @aldous yeh, these started as sketches but end up as vectors — i do like the flatness and lines I get from using Illustrator and the Wacom.
@scotty I am becoming more and more tempted to get onto some cans, you know will probably give it a crack in the next few weeks. I'll put up my effort once I get round to it.
I take it, having done murals and all, that you're well versed in cans? Tips?
