    Hey guys, I'm looking for a job online, whether it's data entry, virtual assistant or anything of that kind.

    *I have a masters degree in Banking and Finance so I can do accounting and bookkeeping,
    *I also learnt web design.
    *I speak English and French fluently

    I tried cold emailing companies to know whether they take remote workers but I haven't got any answer yet. I don't really know which way to go

    PS: please don't mention fiverr or upwork.

    Thanks

    You have 100+ posts
    You have been here for over a year.

    Common man what advice do you need ? Work your ass up ! Save up $150 to buy Jr Vip , then create a BST with your service interest in mind.

    Have you tried starting your own business that helps people, with your bilingual master degree?

    Hey @Harrrr don't do what @SirTop is suggesting.

    The data entry/virtual assistant area of BHW's marketplace is filled with $1 to $3 per hour virtual assistants who can get to 80% of what you could. Most of the users here either don't have the budget or don't have the knowledge to see the value that other 20% brings.

    I'd normally also recommend starting a BST, but in this case, with a Master's degree and fluency in English, I'd advise against it. You would be drowning in the shallow end of an underpriced, saturated pool. You'd end up undervaluing yourself and resenting the process, the forum, and the customer base who would try and slash your rates by 50% even if you undercut yourself by multiples of your actual value.

    That $150 would be far better spent on five months of LinkedIn Premium. Continue your outreach process, and tailor your resume to each individual job.

    @Sherb are you kidding me??Tell me that you write this without to think about it. Linkedin really. This network now is spammed shit of out from start to end and only people who worked on LinkedIn many years can make campaigns with effect.Op don't listen him :) no offence but if you are quite long here you should have some friends from BHW who can help you in your efforts or the most important thing when you get in IM and BHW,you must find your "sensei" or teacher who will guide of whole process how to become from buyer to seller. I don't doubth that you have quality,after all you get the master degree but without proper guidance and advices of the road of IM you will find only dead end. Hope this will help you to you and many others.

    I'm not kidding at all.

    Both of my most recent roles were mid-level salaried, professional positions, and came as a result of LinkedIn outreach. No standalone job board provided the flexibility, customization and adaptability that LinkedIn did. I have also secured several large-scale clients via LinkedIn. Outreach through LinkedIn alone has netted me over $500,000 in the past six years.

    Maybe you only see it as a spam center, but when you ignore the incessant messages, there is plenty of gold. You're probably just doing things wrong. Not surprising for someone who seems like they joined BHW just to spam "samples plz" instead of providing value.

    @Sherb take down your horses man;).I did not want to offend anyone at least you. I know you do email and outreach and you do it on scale as talent.I know also that you grow with tests ,tests and more tests and when you grow here you were asking on private channels samples and still even I consider you pro in many fields you are open person to talks for new ideas and approaches.Or is not that the case here?
    ;) Point here is obvious that the OP tried and failed and you are giving him direction where currently Giants are in big fight and he will burn easily. I know how I feel when get failure by failure .I don't want OP to feel the same. I know you are man of debate and proof so please comments off. Let guide OP to learn how to catch the fish not to give him.

    100% agree. For your specialty you will be way under paid on here. Most people will hire very inexpensive VA's for a buck or two an hour. I would listen to @Sherb and try finding clients that pay what you are worth. Take a look at upwork, the pay is better than you will find here or Fiver. It Upwork may help carry you over until you get work off LinkedIn.

    Good luck.

    Are you Moroccan ?
    How good are your English and French skills ? Can you write ?
    What would be your rates if you worked ?

    How much do you have to invest ? Why don’t you try to focus on something, like web design ?
    What kind of result did you get from emails ?

    I can't start my own finance business because I have only 3 months of experience through internships, I'd fail miserably. I'm actually looking for internships but it's also hard to find in my country right now

    Thanks for the advice man!

    Yh bro, you guessed right and also understand me. I've tried and failed many things as you said. Thanks for your advice too

    I pm'ed you man, thanks!
