    Hi Black Hat Forum,

    I'm a recent college graduate who is interested in learning about internet marketing as a means of providing for myself.

    I graduated in June with a biology degree from a prestigious public university and have not had any luck finding work. I never really enjoyed the subject, and am at an impasse in regards to my future career interests.

    I figured it would be better worth my time to teach myself how to make money online, picking up tangential skills in sales, web design, and programming, than to start a dead-end retail job.

    I look forward to learning from and hopefully one day contributing to the community here.

    ~ jj_

    Hi! Be careful to scammers and noob abusers around, read alot, focus on something you would like to work HARD on night and day and then take action and learn on the way. Don't focus too much on details in the beginning and don't search for shortcuts. Build a brand out of yourself and sell a service. Maybe tutoring, since you graduated.. Good luck and welcome.

    Biology doesn't usually go with IM but glad you're interested!
    It's a fun ride full of experiences, but always be careful, there will be tons of people who's only goal in life is to scam you.
    Always be wary

    How important is it that I learn some form of programming when I'm just getting started?

    From what I've read thus far, it seems like Python might be useful to write scripts/bots. However, I don't want to invest a substantial amount of time into something like that unless it's really necessary to start out.

    Welcome. I would congratulate you about graduating. But reality is different. And yes, learning to code is the best thing that you can do for yourself.

    You have to be focused, pick a method and follow it, I think reading journeys might help too, I've beenhiromacro reading them and I'm really close to deciding which I would do but I also am a noob so I'm saying this from experience. The information here is real, unadulterated success methods. Just don't get overwhelmed. Welcome again

    You seem to have things under control. Do be careful, because this forum has its bad seeds. I haven't been very active to this forum, but can tell you that I've seen my fair deal of people trying to scam others.

    Either way, I'm not trying to scare you away from your very first post, this place rocks in spite of everything else!

    I wish you best of luck.
