Internet Jobs?

Sat Apr 24, 2004 11:12 am

Does anyone have any experience with jobs online. Im currently a high school student that is very good with computers but i cant find any type of office job. Currently i work in a pizzeria which I get treated as a slave and get paid minimum wage, and I will quit this week because it just sucks too much. So my question is this. Does anyone have experience with internet jobs(both good or bad) and does anyone know what is a good place to look for office type jobs(anything that is no t pure physical back-breaking labor)

thanks for the input

I currently work from home -- have done for just over the last 12 months. Basically my job is in an industry which I have a deep affinition for -- the only bad thing is, that I live +8 GMT, but work hours are such that I am often up still at 4-5am during the week -- that's the downside. The only thing I need for my job is a PC and an internet connection -- plus a few other things which I won't disclose here.

I don't really know what you mean by "internet jobs" though?

thx for the response.
what i mean is a job that you work from home via the internet. what i think you have is like a career, but what i need is like a part-time job of about $100-150 per week. i really dont know if that is possible so im aking you

Pick up online poker. I know a lot of people who make high-teens per hour by going online and playing against newbies. And these people aren't that great of poker players either.

If you are good at poker and know systems etc. (I know nada about poker), you can make a pretty good profit. I know one who won $1500 one night with a $65 stake.

Of course, if it was that easy, everyone would do it. You can be the world's greatest poker player and not catch any cards, just like you can catch great hands and lose your entire stake to someone who has just a little bit better hand. As an example, a buddy of mine won $600 in an online tournament and promptly brought it to a high-stakes room, where he lost his entire bankroll. He had a full house - and lost to four of a kind.

Add to this the complexities of cashing out, especially if you're under 21. It's a pain in the ass, even if you are of age. Multiply the difficulty if you're under the legal gambling age in your hometown.

Don't get me wrong- I love to play, and love to have a little extra spending money when I win the tournaments we play at the dorm or if I win a few bucks online. However, my point is that poker, and the cards you get, are much too random to justify it as a "job." At least for me.

If you want to get into poker, check this link out... there are a number of places that will give you some bonus cash just for signing up with them and putting up with the ridiculous amount of spam that they like to mail out.

http://gamblingbonuses.hypermart.net/free-casinos.htm

Note that not every place gives out free cash, and not every place offers poker... However, Royal Vegas (http://www.royalvegaspoker.com) and Seven Sultans both give free money and offer poker.

MNeo- try something like Internet Marketing (Quixtar, etc). Not a bad deal if you're looking for a more stable Internet job.

Good luck in your quest for employment. Online poker questions? Post 'em here... I'll try to answer them.

Agreed... which is why I'm not in it.

Right now I'm livin' off my savings, my tax rebate (finally here  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ), and the occasional cash I can pull in from poker games around the dorm. To put it another way, I'm broke as f*ck.

I do have a couple of friends who are involved with Quixtar, but they haven't devoted a lot of time to recruiting new members, which is where you really make your money. They talk about it like it's the greatest thing since the remote control, but never have the thousands of dollars or the Bimmer that the presentations for the program seem to suggest will fall into your lap right after you pay them $200.

I don't have any Internet marketing experience, but if you learn about any online jobs that don't require you to buy in first, let me know by posting it here or e-mailing me (it's on the profile).

Good luck finding something... it'd be nice to get away from the daily grind of typical teenage employment, but the reality is that there aren't very many great opportunities out there.
