As much as I'd like to earn $50K its not going to happen for a while :)
I haven't got the programming/IT knowledge or experience to get a job in
that field, and I only want a job for aboout 6 weeks, seeing as I'm doing
peer networker stuff for the last 2 weeks of February. I'm looking at
about $15 per hour, not $75.
If anyone wants to employ me part time for the next 6 weeks ...
I'm very enthusiastic and employable :)
