Job Networking

Published:

I'm a self-employed maintenance/remodeling contractor.  For the last couple years I've been suffering increasingly worse arthritis in my hands.  It is making it difficult to continue in my line of work (screwdrivers and wrenches don't mix with arthritis in your hands).

I'm considering changing my line of work and would like to get an internet-related job such as research, proofreading or writing but don't know where to start in my search.  If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please PM me.  I would appreciate any help.

Thank you!!!

my advice would be to learn what other people are doing in that line of work on the internet - spend a lot of time researching using google and sites that act as directories for that line of work. after you feel that you know a lot about it, you'll be in a better position to decide what to do. you'll probably also want to learn how to build a web site so you can market yourself. it will take a long time to do -- there are no real shortcuts. (so don't quit your day job and stake everything on an internet career.)

good luck!

Thanks for the feedback Todd. I just have to do more homework on it. So far, Google is full of work-at-home schemes and it's difficult separating the wheat from the chaff.

But...as they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention" and I'll figure something out.
