I typically do back-end stuff, but have done a little bit of everything- logo design, image editing with photoshop, working with online stores, php/mysql, ajax, editing wordpress or joomla, simple updates you name it. Typically I post ads on Craigslist trying to get clients. Not much luck lately though. Usually just fake calls, or criminals will offer jobs (someone texted me they wanted me to print their office's checks for them on my home computer from an out-of-state number. yea right bud).
I just feel like there isn't much work available out there in this field. I don't get how some tech companies can be ranked to be worth in the billions, when sometimes it's hard to find a quick job that will pay a couple hundred bucks. I was considering joining fiverr.com, but some programmers say they won't even charge less than $50/hr. I don't get where they find their clients I've been doing this forever I have the experience but most people don't see this as a necessity.
I should have studied as a mechanic, or something. Cars and automobiles are a necessary expense. Most people are willing to either make their own website/blog, or just cut out these expenses because they feel it's not necessary. Best place to look for jobs? I've tried monster, dice, linkedin, plus others I get a lot of emails about work but recruiters are terrible at returning calls and setting up interviews.
