I was looking at alot of jobs and applied for alot of jobs but I don't have a very large portfolio so I started working on alot of projects to get the portfolio bigger.. then I stumbled upon the question "what do they want to see?"

So anyone who is bored and has time to list a few five to ten things you'd think an employer wants to see, let me know. I plan to make anything and everything.
I was thinking forum (done it), CMS (done it), some personal sites, a chat/dating site (done it), maybe some games, etc.. Whatever feedback you have, i'll take it.

'Stuff' you have done for paying customers ought to have impact.  It ought to show that you can complete a project working with someone else's ideas about what they want, as well as complete something on time to a budget.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.
