I am a student and I am currently finishing up my Masters degree in Science in the Netherlands. While my study normally takes a lot of time, in the new few months I will have room for 20+ hour of freelance work each week and I am in desperate need for money. Part time work is scarce where I love, and since I am very proficient in anything related to computers I'd love to earn a few $ online. For the past few days, I've been trying to find work as a writer at freelancer sites such as oDesk and Elance with limited succes. While I try to write an unique cover letter for each application and charge slightly less than the maximum budget, I cannot seem to be able to land any jobs due to Indians outbidding me, or 'professional' writers which have more credentials. I was told by a friend of mine, who is also here on Black Hat World, that there are many webmasters here looking for freelancers so I thought I'd give it a try. Besides writing articles, I'm very familiar with data entry in Excel, combined with statistical analysis and programming in Visual Basic. In addition, I've developed several websites in the past and I am proficient with html/css and Wordpress. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. I read these forums every now and then, and it seems like it's a great community to be apart of and I'd like to getmore involved.
