Recently I heard in the news that the number job opportunities, both local and abroad, given by employers to a certain online job search service has gone down due to the financial crisis. This is really bad news to many job seekers. But the spokesperson of the online job search service said that employers are probably just being cautious but their company expects that more job opportunities will come in the next few months.

Speaking of job opportunities, during a recent bloggers event, in a conversation I had with another blogger, I learned that for those who are into writing, there are many job opportunities abroad and local. Freelance writing jobs abound in the internet, and in fact, my blogger friend mentioned how someone she knows earns big time from writing a Custom Essay, web content, e-books, a Dissertation, term papers, etc. So, I thought I would consider doing freelance writing, too.

So this past few days, I have been visiting sites that have lists of jobs and last night, I sent my first e-mail to an employer inquiring about the freelance, part-time writing job being offered. I just tried it out because telecommuting was allowed. There were some jobs, though, that seem too much for me. I don’t think I can handle writing 8 to 10 600-word articles per day. Maybe I would be more comfortable starting out with about 4 to 5 250-word articles and right now, that is what I’m in search of.

One idea thought of was to apply at those sites that offer Buy Essay services, editing or proof reading. A website where a student or a professional can buy original and uniquely written work, whether it’s an article, an admission essay, resume, web content, assignments, term papers, a report, a research and even a database. But since I am just an amateur writer, I am really not sure if I can handle working for that type of company.

I am just hoping that my wife and I would come across a freelance job opportunity from a local or international employer directly. Because with that, rates would be more reasonable compared to having a third party slash off a big part of the employer’s payment before it gets to us. And I’m sure that the competition is tight in this arena but I believe in a big God who can provide this job if it is really meant for us.
