    Exams are soon to come and although having a diploma is supposed to help you get a job it isn't really the case since almost everyone has this diploma, so the things that happens that even with a diploma you still only can get crappy jobs unless you know someone who runs a business

    so here's my question:
    What are the kind of jobs i can do from behind my computer that don't require me to go to an office or to live in the same country as the actual company and does anyone have any experience with this?

    I don't intend to stay in France when i graduate and i'm not sure where i'll go so a job that i can do wherever i am would be ideal

    1) what do you know ?
    2) what did you graduate in ?
    3) where do you live?

    might be running a business in the next couple of months, if you can do what I need you could work for us from wherever you live...

    I'll keep it in English so the other members wont flame me lol

    I'm actually dutch but i've been living here in Brittany for about half of my life so i'm kinda trilingual, i'm only passing my BAC ES this year so nothing special ( when comming to france they put me in a lower class to learn French hence why i still don't have it at age 20)
    I did pass the First English certificate last year with an A as mark, it's an exam organized by Cambridge
    Other than that no particular skill, i'm a quick learner though

    So you want a computer-based job.... with no existing computer-based skills?

    yes I find this a little strange.. What do you want to do?
    And what do you know could potentially make a boss hire you?

    I worked from home for a company from the US for some time.. it's a lot harder than it looks, it's hard to concentrate in your work when you're at home and have a lot of other better things to do and no boss around to see if you're really working [​IMG]
