Finding jobs online has always been a struggle for me. There are days where I’ll just search for hours trying to find something new. I get pretty bored with what I’m doing fairly easily so I like to mix things up a bit and explore new areas. I have been taking on projects lately that I never thought I would be able to do. I have been reviewing electronics, writing FAQs for websites. These are things I never would have dreamed would have been possible. I’ve been very lucky to meet people online who are willing to give me a chance. I tell them straight up that I have no idea what I’m doing but I will work with them and see what we can come up with together. I think that open-minded attitude has gotten me very far.
I have my days, where I feel so uncomfortable with the current project I’m working on that I just want to give up, but somehow, I end up finishing it and it’s such a great feeling. This is why I live to work online. The possibilities are endless and I’m learning so much more than I ever would have imagined. No “real” job could ever teach me this much. No real job could give me the opportunity to get to know people from all walks of life, all around the world. I am learning about different cultures and it’s fascinating. Even though people are so different, they are all the same in so many ways as well.
The world seems much smaller since I’ve been working online.
