    Need Advice on Jobs

    Hey,

    Need Advice from all of you. Right now i'm unemployed, I can try to get a job, but the thing is, should i wait for the summer, or get it now, because i'm heading for my last couple of years of highschool which are critical. Right now the only $$ i'm making is on http://flipsource.net, and that's if only people click my ads. Does anyone have ideas for online home jobs?

    Thanks

    How much money do you really need? Your still living at home correct? Enjoy the free time you have now. You will be working the rest of your life soon, so why rush it?

    I clicked on one of your ads to help you out!

    Thanks for the help Thing ! , Yeah i know, but i wouldn't mind making my own little extra cash on the side, to purchase stuff instead of nagging my parents for money. As for how much money? I wouldn't mind making a few 20, 30 bucks here and there.

    I clicked your link and read this.. which ironically, doesn't surprise me:

    NBC has been sued for $2.5 million dollars by a Cleveland man, claiming he was grossed out after watching contestants eat dead rats on “Fear Factor”, and that he could not stomach what he saw.
    I knew it wouldn't be long before someone did that.. That show is beyond disgusting, but I wouldn't sue over it!

    Thanks Sparkie, I agree, it is disgusting, but wouldn't sue over it. People are sueing all over the place, but what they are sueing for is just plain dumb.

    Become a web developer / programmer. You can make some decent money if you are willing to spend the time. Btw, your site is great! You writing style is fantastic, and the layout is superb! I had to refresh about 5 times to get an ads that would pay (everything was oxfam, hence no $$) just because your site is great. Wanna return the favour?

    Bookmarked your site by the way!

    It may be a bit hard to do online jobs at first without a proven track record. You may want to offer a free hand every now and then. Web design and hosting are good markets but very over-crowded and competitive already. You may want to look into specialising in something...

    Get a part time job in fast food. Create websites on the side {low investment there only domain and hosting}. Graduate from high school and go to college. Everyone can afford college, I paid my way through it with jobs that never paid more than $9.00 an hour.
