Uhh, I would stick away from Craigslist. I tried submitting my resume on there, and all I got were people trying to start a business looking for sales people, commission only Yeah, that'* a good way to get yourself into trouble.

To be honest, get out of fast food, and retail in general. You aren't going to make good money working retail unless you fluke into one of the few jobs that is worth having, like customer service at a **** store (really, one of my friends used to work for Lion'* Den, she made twice what I did working for Meijers, and I had a UNION JOB)

Update (again!)

I'm officially employed by west now! But I cannot start yet. I'm waiting for Charter to install my new land line to use for the incoming calls. Then get a phone headset from somewhere (someone help me on this please!).

And some other possible jobs.

A 3rd party has sent me a form to fill out to work at a Photo Lab at a Target. Unsure of it being legit.

Someone I've known online for about 4 years sell a drink called "White Lightning" Which is a pyramid scheme. But they are making money off it. AND gave proof of it. They're sending me a sample of it to try it. It'* claimed as a 100% natural cherry flavored powered energy drink. It'* $45 to get like 30 pouches of it. Push it to the covenience stores and have them buy it under me and sell it by myself to my friends and mark it up a little bit and bring the money in. But thats just if it goes right.

Also online someone is looking for some ppl to do tedious internet work. E-mail said....

basically I need someone to go to trade websites which i will provide (wholesalers, manufacturers, importers, exporters, distributors) and get their contact/company info and put it into excel so then it can be ported into the website. it is very easy but tedious that'* why I am looking for a team of people to work a little bit at a time and not to drown one person with so much work. I have about 3 people now but I am looking for two more people. I pay cash no tax bs.

I replied that I might be interested and asked more questions. How does it sound though?


Wish me luck guys!

Oh man I know how you feel. I'm a landscaper of 5 years now and haven't made over $20K yet. Needless to say after shoveling this winter i'm done. I need to find something that pays over $30K a year or i'm screwed.

I've started officially yesterday as a trainee. What I'm doing is going through interactive tutorials and guides. Then they give me test on what is what and such.

So far I've made $35 sitting on my lazy ***!

one week later, Its all done! I'm now fully certified to work on taking orders for HSN at home!

All I need is my login info sent to me which they said is 5-7 business days.

Only drawback now: $7.50 an hour, But I'm trading off that I don't need to go anywhere or dress! Plus if I do talk more Theres a chance I can get more per hour.
