Title: I need an advice
Post by: laveKayaguera on April 02, 2009, 11:24:03 pm
I'm new here. I've been browsing tons of forums for an idea of what to do. I was laid off from my job about 3 month ago. I've been looking for a job since then, but did not even get a single interview. I worked as a web designer for a publishing company for the last 5 years. Looks like is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "cpg1.4 install" category is not the most appropriate for this question, but I want to try anyways to get some opinions before I go ahead with my life. I'm wondering if it is possible in the current economy to find work for a freelance web designer and make enough to pay for rent and groceries. I was able to find a small project on craigslist and I developed a website for a company. It was a small project and took me only a week to complete. I got paid $800 for 1 week of work which is not bad. Please people give me some ideas. I have 2 kids and my wife is out of work as well. Thank you in advance.

This is indeed not the proper forum to discuss stuff like this - definitely beyond scope and not allowed. Wether $800/week is enough to care for your family depends on where you live as well, so you failed to post essential data anyway. Although your unemployment may be sad for you, it's not the subject that will be discussed here. Moving to "General discussion" and locking.
