I was just wondering if anyone knows how I can become a proofreader? I have been looking into it, and all the websites say you don't need qualifications. But when you apply for a job, they always ask you which level of distinction you have etc. I am not that well educated, but I am literate and I have good attention to detail. This would be something I would like to do part time, as I have a young son and would like to expand my family. I would also like to continue earning money to help with the bills etc. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
I have done my Bachelors degree in IT (information Technology), but that was in 2002. It has been 8 years now , and I have NO work experience at all. How can I know what my degree is worth in today's working field, and without experience who will employ me?
I am a 21-year-old mum of two young children, the youngest being seven months. I previously worked as a customer service adviser, but did not go back after maternity leave as it was not finacially beneficial to me and my partner. I would like to get a job, but there seems to be nothing out there for me. Childcare costs are ridiculous -what I would earn a hour wouldn't even cover these costs. I have thought about a home study corse in bookkeeping. Is there any way I could get a grant to do this? I thought with a qualification under my belt I'd be more employable. Please if you know of any jobs I could do or advice on my home learning it would be much appreciated.
