I feel desperate

I might lose my job because the institution where I worked may need to lay off workers. This is because CHED ordered that Nursing schools should stop admitting freshmen beginning next year to avoid increase of unemployed nursing graduates in the Philippines. In order to prepare for this, I decided to look for ways to earn in case I will be one of those who will lose jobs. I tried to work on PTC sites. I have been working on it for two months already but I seem to not get a real income. I tried mylot but until now I could not get the minimum payout. I tried joining V-Mobile which promised to give an opportunity to earn, but until now I could not get a downline. I feel so desperate. Anyone knows how I can earn extra? Though I considered applying for a new job, I still need to have an extra online job to keep up with our bills while I am still searching for a new job. I hope I can get here

You can try writing online. I can teach you how, there are several sites that pay decently. I'll be closing 2010 with nearly $2,500 total writing income -- and that is working only 4-5 hours per day during the last eight months.

Yes it's open worldwide. Based on my experiences however, my Philippine-based referrals have experienced problems logging to the site. I just don't know why. As for me, I haven't had any problem. I'll try to communicate the "bug" with the Helium staff. Currently, I have 700 articles there, I'm also a member of Helium's How-to and news writing team and I am regularly paid a hefty sum monthly. It's one of the best site for freelance writers. I guess, the log-in problems happen when one uses different IP addresses. I'll drop you a PM once the staff responds.

If you're a really good writer you might try constant-content.com. You dictate the price of your own articles and get 65% if a customer buys it. I can feel your pain. I'm a BSN grad too and, meh no one's hiring here either.

Contact me on PM and I can share you a few tips on how to get money. I have a few ways but none of them are get rich quickly methods but you can make $10-15 a day without really putting an effort into it (sure you have to work a little but not as much as on mylot). and $10 per day does add up at the end of the month and I have only started just now so you might even do better. Contact me if you want me to explain.

Where do you live? I can offer the lionbridge company. Lionbridge Technologies Internet Assessor Job. It's a work from home, you must have internet access and read a lot of guidelines but it's really interesting job. If you are american, canadian it gives about 600-800$ a month. You must take an exam, but it's easy, the only bad thing is - if you are from a country, where they don't have very developed internet, you will not have much job. I myself make only 20$ a month, they pay per hour, it's 6$/hour for me. But it's 12 or more for the resident of other countries, and they have 10 - 20 hour job in week. right now it's even 40 hours for some reason. they decide that based on the minimal wages in country.

i'm so sorry, it's horrifying to hear this kind of news but be careful, we are all energy, mind your thoughts and be hopefull you could look up new jobs cause it's always nice to know what's out there and to change for a better work but you can't do that preparing your self for the worse, we attract what we feel the best luck my dear, i know how you are feeling, i got fired once but also i was very negative about it, i don't know if i attracted that

Yes you could teach by writing, just one option. I would say put your resume on monster.com. Also look at www.genuine jobs.com. Now being that you are in the medical field, what about getting a job in the field of veterinarian medicine or becoming a medical transcription http://callgraph.biz/blog/ or http://typists.quicktate.com/transcribers/signup Or maybe you could get a job with insurance companies reviewing medical claims that have been submitted. Also what about being an online staff for places like webMD. You know medical sites that have live online chat answering people medical questions? What about starting a blog and telling people about home remedies for ailments. There is a world of possibilities, you just need to start thinking outside of the box and start taking action today so that when or if the poop hits the fan so to speak, you will be ready/prepared.
