What type of jobs do my children qualify for?
One has a computer degree in database, the other in internet/web page design. They are unsure of what type of businesses use this type of degree. Any suggestions?
The degrees alone will not qualify them for very many jobs, but certainly will get their foot in the door at a company.
Database -> database administrator (DBA), access administrator, oracle administrator, oracle superuser, database developer, database trainer.
Companies use databases for holding customer records, accounting, digital assets, web site management. There are many industries you can enter. This is mainly an I.T. Dept job.
Web Design -> web designer, creative director, creative producer, content manager, web developer, GUI designer.
Web design can open up to many different opportunities. Internet and web sites are huge industries with many different facets. Web design can be in sales, marketing or I.T. Dept.
In 10 years, your children can be making nearly $100,000 per a year. Both are strong degrees.
how can I start an internet business?
I need help in starting a business on the internet. I know what I want to do, but I need a business plan with financials and I will need investors. I do not have any money as I am unemployed, but the business I am thinking of ties in directly with the information age and internet. Can someone advise me as to the steps I need to take to be successful?
Couple of things I want to share. The most common scenario to start a business is: out of work, lots of time and ideas at hand and bills coming in. This case has 2 types of exits: either get a job or establish a business.
But, to establish a business you need to invest money in it. Even though it’s an internet business, it still needs: website, products, social media marketing, search engine optimization etc etc.
So, I can suggest to become a freelancer until you get some seed money for your business.
Www.oDesk.com is a great place to start. There are others: www.guru.com, www.freelancer.com, www.elance.com.
Then, create a website (if you’re going to offer your own products / services as a business) or – sign up as an affiliate marketer and create all sorts of social media and social bookmarking accounts.
You will need to make it work: so investment is necessary.
You need to mingle with your target market (create a list) and learn how to do things online: like choosing the right media path for you: http://bit.ly/boU5oK
And you need a cutting edge strategy. Hence, you’ll be looking for a business coach (Me 🙂 ) firstname.lastname@example.org
