I am a engineering student and i think it is easy but these jobs may not be safe. It will be notsafe if you don't read the terms and conditions of those jobs and just signing up. There are so many demerits of those jobs(may be legally). I have seen sometimes there may be the chance of virus infection to your PC due to those job sites. These are listed in their terms and conditions. So i request you all to read that part while signig up.

I dont think there is any risk with regards to virus infection on online earning sites.The only risk earning online is that there is a chance of working on a scam site and you might not get anything for your hard labour.By the way Anti-Virus softwares detects when a virus try to get into your pc through online means.

That's a nice suggestion. But it is difficult to get a job on net without expertise. Those who got some kind of expertise they should read the terms. otherwise it a waste of time. Don't you think so?

actually internet business is risky and time consuming. i worked on site for two years, when i reached payout they refused to pay me. the name of the site is american-mails.com. for the virus issues, anti virus will solve that. earning online requires lots of hard work, though you can still make if you know the secret. you can visit my profile for my blog on making money online. you will be glad you did. good luck.

it's safe for as long as you have the proper tools installed in your pc. it's a must to have an antivirus software, so it can block malicious sites. make sure to do a lot of research also before joining any program. There are a lot of scammers out there. Internet jobs maybe difficult at start but once you get the hang of it, it's fairly easy. If you want to start an internet business, feel free to visit my profile - the link to my website is there.

I have been searching the internet for the last 2 years for a legit internet job and I can't find any. I would love to work at home, full time, doing data entry or something like that but there really isn't anything. Not enough to make a living with or even some extra cash. So now I am posting in mylot and reading emails for money. It is just extra money that I use to buy stuff from ebay with. I have a regular day job. I am self employed and I clean houses which is very hard on the body so that is why I was looking for a way to earn online instead.

Many of the sites that offer you a job just want money. If you are definitely interested in earning money on the Internet, the best places to start are by doing surveys or doing some kind of data entry work. On the data entry work, you will have to pay but if you search you can find other sites that tell you which ones are for real and worth your money and which ones are just a scam.

maximum percentage of time I have seen thatthese online jobs are not at all something which you can rely upon. If it is a part of their business than it is a completely different issue but if you want to earn money on nine by doing some small jobs and I think this is a very great tries to have. One thing is very simple earning money is not that easy and so you cannot totally rely on nine earning jobs. It indefinitely take it as aside part. You can employ a few people to do those kinds of job so that they can constantly give you some earning from a stable and reliable website but to totally depend on that particular thing is something which I personally feel is not worth doing. First of all it is not value for money you get when you compare it with your time spent on that particular job last plus there is a big risk factor involved in it because you are not physically present so you never know may be a big project that you have taken needed some investment and when you're about to deliver it suddenly the set is down.

yeah you are right and online jobs take a lot of time if you are an engineering student why bother wasting time on this. study well if you get a job through campus your life is set boss. starting salary is more than 30,00 rs what else do you wants.

I know someone, a civil engineer, who bids on projects that need an autocadd operator. Specs are sent to him and he sends back his drafts, etc, and revisions are also discussed online, and he receives payment thru western union as they transact, like, for every phase of the project done his client pays him before he proceed to the next phase.

Yes. it is not at all safe to do these internet jobs, and also most of the jobs are not reliable also. I already experiencing the same since 2002. Once our hardisk was completely gone with virus from those websites. Even if you read the terms and conditions, they will be changing very frequently. that's why it is better to choose any Data entry work from any local companies in which you stays. Some people told me about these but me myself still searching the internet, news papers etc.

Hey,smrutisingh.I think it's all depend.If you choose the right sites,you can really earn some money,but if you choose a false one,then what waiting for you will be a con game.I have experienced one.A search engine promised to give me money when I ues it,but when I reach the payout,it didn't really pay me.I waited for almost three months and have got no money.So I think the choice is very important.

I agree with you. There's no doubt that problems could appear. But do you know that there is a honest job company been hacked by hacker? I'm sorry for that company. Just started about a week then suddenly no use at all because of an hacker.
