    Lost my job... no jobs are calling back. I'm a college student... and I am on the verge of becoming homeless.


    I was thinking of taking up a quick trade. There's an EKG technician program that it only take 14 weeks to complete and they assist with job placement. Not my dream job and it doesn't even fit me. However, its not a bad job... nice starting pay and the hours are usually nights which will work perfect with my school schedule.

    OR

    Should I just learn Web Design in a matter of 14 weeks... buy a course or something and work as a freelancer and for a company???? <--- This fits me more... but it doesn't seem as promising as the EKG TECH!

    I need to come up with a plan by the middle of Decemeber and be accomplished by February.


    Any suggestions?

    If you are on the verge of becoming homeless, you need a job now. You don't need to take more classes to maybe get a job in 14 weeks. Have you tried McDonald's, Taco Bell, Domino's, etc?

    I'm assuming you're in the U.S. Anyone here that says that they can't get a job makes me wonder what else is going on. Even convicted rapists can get a job washing cars at the car wash.

    On the web design, do that for fun in your spare time. If you becoming amazing at it, start playing around with making some bucks on it, after all of your bills are paid.

    Take that job, become a bit more stable, complete your education if it helps you find better prospect. In the mean time, learn about the various online professions that you may seriously fit in, and get into it if you still have the time. Only a lucky few make a successful AND a full-time (read: longtime) online career, so you should first have a stable job, have a solid roof above you head, have some good bank balance, and when you are moving comfortably on that way or towards those goals, then take these risks imo. Good Luck.

    Shoot for the stars my good man, try and become one of those oil dudes for the magazine photoshoots. Rubbin' oil all over the bodies of sexy women every single day sounds pretty good to me, then again I bet there's a downside to it that nobody sees.

    Permanent oily hands or something.
