    Well, i make my living online. I mean i make good moneys with different methods.
    Anyway i'm a Computer Science Major and i've almost have finished the Master on Computer Sciences.
    What i did until now was creating different application for companies (On my Own Profession)

    I'm Very Good with :

    C++,C#, Visual Basic, Computer Networks (Routing,Designing) As i'm also certificated with CCNA from CISCO.
    PHP,HTML,CSS,Java Script.
    Photoshop, Dream viewer,Illustrator...(Adobe Pack)
    Software Engineering (Pretty well on creating step by step plans for software and applications and Analyzing them.)
    And some other Skills.

    Anyway what i want to know is should i go and work for different companies or keep working on my own as Internet Marketer..?

    I mean i thing that here in Kent there is a good payment for a person with my skills.

    Some companies have offered 50k$ minimum salary per year.

    What would you suggest guys...?
    As i've got some offers for some job positions but i need to know your opinion as this would change all the plans on Internet Marketing game.

    Even $50k is not much in your line of work... You can make much much more!

    Look around you can do IM and still pull down close to 6 figures with your background in a "regular job"

    idk where you live but where im from (nj&ny) those types of qualifications (depending on experience as well) can easily net you 70-120k yearly with a lot of companies.. especially if you mention your online marketing skills since a lot of companies are looking to cut corners and hire packaged deals ;p

    Second this.

    I mean, put yourself out into the job market and see what available.

    Also, there are a lot more variables that are not revealed by your post.

    Yes,
    That's what i'm thinking to do.

    I've got some sites making money on Autopilot (Semi-Autopilot as they need content on weekly basic).

    And i thought to get a job as it would bring me more money.

    You can make enough to realize that you you are not satisfied and you need more money so eventually you are back here.

    Did u consider getting your websites that need content into one of the link circles? Something like post links is a good one or linkvana.

    These sites pay you to have them populated with other peoples spun content; it works well for autopilot. The posts will have 2 OBL's though.

    To make this type of decision is good to write a list first. Put IM on one column and a regular job on the other. Put the positive and negative aspects of both.
    Compare that list with your priorities: what are your goals? what is more important, money or freedom? etc.
    Is easier to make a decision with facts.

    No,
    I'd prefer to keep my sites updated with unique and quality articles as they ranked very good on google and i wouldn't like to see my sites dropped.

    Anyway thanks for your advice

    I was making $70,000 a year before IM, not CS, algorithms (i.e. math + programming).
    You can reach $80k - $90K with programming, but thats about that, higher salaries are very rare.

    You dont make real money working for other people, your own business is the way to go.

    If I was offered a job for 100k/yr and I made half (or even a quarter) of that doing IM. I'd choose IM every time. In my mind, nothing beats the freedom of working when you want. Also, there's technically no ceiling to how much you can make, it all depends how hard and how much effort you want to put in.
