ok.. ok.. let me specify, part time but also a white collar type job.. more professional..


Jehovah's Witness?

Nah, really, I think telemarketing would work for you. Debt Collection?  You likely want to find something relatively mindless if you plan to do it during 1L, right?  How about managing a video store at night?

part time law school also..

So part time school + part time work = full time load.

Not trying to kill myself.. Did that in undergrad.. never I mean never doing that again..

Oh, got it now.  You write well / quickly?  Have a good knowledge of the Office Suite?

Contract technical writing at $15 to $35 an hour.  Check out monster or careerbuilder.  Guru.com, too. 

When I quit my full-time gig as a tech writing supervisorthis summer, this is what I plan to do to make ends meet.  I'm more in the $30 to $35 range, but a college grad with good wiriting / editing skills can get $20/hr from the door.

My degree is in electrical engineering.. so I wouldn't say that I was trained extensively in writing.  But I like to think that I am somewhat decent.  Normally engineers aren't regarded as overly adept in the writing arena.  Given my situation, would I still be considered qualified?  And how many hours could I expect to work per week?

That's the beauty.  You get a deadline before you accept the work.  So, you plan it out yourself.  And once you get one or two little gigs under your belt, you just keep going back to the same people for work.

That's awesome.. so you choose how much you work.. is there a constant stream of work?  Always work avail. if you want it? 

What are you writing about?  Do they give you everything you need?  Or do you have to research?  Give me an example of a project that would be typical.  Thanks!

Here's one from guru that requests a bid:

"Category: Writing / Editing / Translation
Description:
I am helping a friend who has recently retired from the military consider new job options. I am seeking someone with experience in writing winning resumes for ex military who wish to go into corportate work.

He is retired after 20 years, as Commander Sargent Major of the Army Rangers (special forces) He is 39 and has a BS and is currently working on his masters. I am just searching for someone who might be able to help him maybe have a broader concept of what he might be able to do and who has worked with people who are trying to transisition after working exclusively in the military.

I would also be interested in consulting on careers. If you have any sample resumes it would be nice to show him to see who's work he likes. Thanks so much for your time.

Molly"


Now, I'd bid $50 for this and explain how I'd approach the project and provide examples of some resumes I've written.  It'd be like 1 hour of work for me.

Guru.com is a bid site.  They have programming work, too.  Can you write code?  Design web pages?

The extent of my knowledge for programming would be the 3 classes that I took in college.  I remember the languages but by no means an expert.  I would say more intermediate at best. 

I know the basic things for websites.. I used to toy around with my own site but then again it was not too involved. 

I know a lot of things just not expert level lol..
Does that even matter or are these type jobs pretty straight forward for someone like me.

You'll def find something that fits yo skill set.  Just starting building a rep w/ small jobs...and you'll have $200 to $300 worth of work to do a week.  And, you'll only be working 10 to 15 hrs.
