Hi Friends, I'm currently working in Vodafone as Account Manager but I'm not happy with my current job. Though I'm getting paid a good salary from my current employer but still it does't make me happy. I always dream to do big. Specially on web. Can I succeed in online job? Should I leave the current job?

You should stay with your current job,it gives you a good salary.You can do online jobs as parttime,that is better.As your current position allows you to work online When you are in duty.There are so many micro works companies running online,they don't need much time to work.

that is good advice. A regular salary will keep you peaceful and stress free. You can always explore online opportunities in your spare time. You don't know whether you are disciplined enough to work without supervision.

Thank you friend, I think both of you are right. But I always dream to be a web designer, I went to a wrong profession. I'm trying to get out of it.

I don't think it would be a wise decision if you leave your current job. Earning online can just give you some extra money but I think it is not enough to make a living and you are not sure to get your money because there are many scam sites out there.

Do you want an online job? It is fine. It is just that its hard to find job on online but, I think if you have talents and skills then, you can do it in online world but, to be sure, you should not leave first the current job. It is because we do not know for sure if we're going to succeed or not on online world when it comes to work. For me, it is better to have a back up job outside from home.

I don't think it would be a wise decision to quit your current job saying that it is paying you fairly well. Instead, you must use the spare time learning skills to earn huge money on the internet and then try at a hand in online business. With your current job you at least have the stability and a regular income, but with online work there is nothing like stability especially in the beginning when you do not have the required technical skill.

keep the job, just keep the job. It might not be pleasant, but neither is trying to work online. Believe me, keep the job. Keep looking for a regular paying job if you do not like the one you have. but never online only.

Personally, and this is my opinion, a person should never leave a job without knowing they have something else better yo go too, especially in today's economy. Working for a place is many times hard to get anymore especially when it pays well. If you are wanting to do something online do your homework and make sure it is going to last first as in income so you will not end up regretting your decision later on.

I've been making a little bit of money online for a few years now, but despite the fact that the time that I put into my online work is similar to the hours that I would probably put into a full time job, the money that I am making from the work that I am doing online is nothing near what I would be making if I had a traditional job outside the house. That said, unless you are not depending on the wages that you are earning with your regular job, I would NOT quit your job so that you can work online exclusively.

working from home, particularly online requires tremendous self discipline and hard work till you succeed. There are not enough online opportunties for Indians, so don't be hasty and wait for the good web opportunities.

First of all, if you're not happy with your current job despite its pay, try looking for other jobs that you think will be more suitable for you. Second, do not leave your current job without having a backup plan. And lastly, while the Internet has provided us with many income opportunities, I still don't think its enough to sustain our everyday needs. Looking for an online job and getting one is just the same as the regular job. The only difference is that you're only doing it at home. If you will succeed in your online career? It depends. There is no guarantee and income is less stable compared to having a regular job.

I understand you want to succeed to the online job, but it doesn't mean that you have to give up your current job now. It is very risky. Especially today the economy doesn't go so well. And actually it is not easy to earn a lot via the net. it will give you an extra little money only. I can't make a living if I work online.

Hello there how are you doing? I think you should not let go of the job yet until you have established and have already stabilized your wanted online career. Online businesses do well now and it you got the right idea you can only make it bigger and unique and people will love your website and they will patronize it. When they do it will grow and it will be known and successful.

While legitimate online jobs pay there are also many drawbacks. Besides the scam sites that proliferate the net, the earnings may not be enough for you. There is no guaranteed security with working online due to the amount of existing competition among sites. Working online does not pay for your Social Security and Philhealth including other benefits required from employers. The online jobs that pay are usually article writing jobs including those in need for web designers and graphic artists. Since Infographics are the trend right now for SEO, there are many openings for those who have the aptitude for the job. However, you can be successful online as long as you have the determination.

you can because of your intelligence. If your not happy with your job then while on your current job find online job which will suits you. plan for it.. do not make it in a rush.day by day find the job which will suits your interest online.If you are sure already 'stable' with your online job and you finally decide that you really want to quit your job. then that is the best time to decide. just not right now. planning and timing is important.
