Are there any real online jobs out there?

    There are a lot of "make $5000 a day" home business crap out there. Does anyone know of any real jobs?

    For example last year i used to flirt with girls online lol pretending im in the pub on my mobile for this sms flirt company. But i got bored of it quickly and the pay was not too good either.

    Its just it seems like im not going to uni this year so il need a full time job. My part time one is just not enough since il have the time.

    Any ideas? Thanks! :D

    Um not unless you work your @ss off. Working at home making a full time living on the net takes alot of work and isn't for most people.

    Depens on how much you can do.
    Like for example a l33t coder and webdesigner can earn alot of money, atleast that's what I've been told.
    Or you can just try to build your own empire, like shoemoney, ..

    Well yea, i have small amounts of money coming from my various websites but at the moment its nowhere near enough to live off. And im not a programming guru. Surely there must be something out there. Like picture/submission/member/data validation, being a moderator or something related. I know there are jobs out there its just trying to find one is a pain in the back.

    That is why people go to college and get degrees buddy. Unless you get real lucky, have really good conections, or are very tallented there is no shortcut.

    Why;d you put a please in there? Add a dammit or something - add some emphasis LOL

    Back on topic...

    Yes, there are lots of good online jobs if you have skills. Next year, I'm debating whether to hire a copywriter or a php programmer (or both) to work full or part time for me. Outsourcing has gotten to be a little too much for me.

    Well if you read my first post i already had one of them jobs. I dont think its about luck, its about lack of information.

    If i had a degree i would not work online on the other hand.

    I don't have a college degree; and I make a 6 figure income each year.

    College degree just means you have the patience to sit through 4 years of professors' BS.

    Indeed, there are alot of jobs out there, even in the DP forum jobs are offered (like writing articles and posting in forums).
    The difficult task is to find the jobs that pay enough when you compare them to the numbers of hours you spent on them..
    So I think you should try some various jobs and see what you like best.

    ps: I think that if you keep working on your websites, it will also start to generate a decent amount of income, atleast that's what i'm hoping it will do for me :)

    How much would you like to make? My friend go a full time job at a theatre made $220/week. Free movies as well. It really depends on much much you want to make and skillset.

    At the moment i get around £120 a week for chasing up people who did not put enough stamps on their letters for royal mail. Which is a great fun. Its just i work 3 hours a day and i have a lot of spare time. If i have the time for a full time job, why not get one.

    Well that is about $200/week in US dollars. How much you make off the wbsites? If you spend another 4 hours a day building sites im sure you could earn another $200/week via the internet which would be $400/week.
