Dear Rose, I’m currently enrolled in a course called Grant Writing 101 from Online University. I’m reading what you wrote about grant writing. I want to leave my present job. I’m currently tying to be a Freelance Writer. I realize it’s very hard work but I two things going for me: I love to read and don’t mind hard work.

I was wondering if there are any pointers that you could pass along that might help my get started? I’ve read a couple of books but some where they never point out what to do when your new at this, I don’t have any clips, not even a web site(working on one), and nothing that could be called an example. This is where I’m stuck.

Any help would much be appreciated.

The first thing I noticed about your email is that you don't have a website. I also don't know if you are talking about being a freelance writer or being a grant writer.

The first thing that I would advise you to do is to get your website up and running. At least then your site information can be seen 24/7. I don't know the details of the kind of site that you're starting but I would advise you to get that up and running as soon as you can.

If you're talking about freelance writing, I would suggest that you get a copy of the Writer's Market - whether you buy it outright or check it out at your library. This book contains most the information that you will need to start your writing career started.

If you're talking about grantwriting, I have seen it suggested that you start with a small, non-profit organization and help them with their grantwriting. That way you will start to make a name of yourself and plus it will give you that experience that you need.

I hope that this helps answering your question.

Help Me To Get My Dream Job

Hey rose.. im a student in the national institute of technology in india.. Actually i wanted to go for fashion designing but my parents dint allow as im a good student according to them i must work..you know they are more concerned about job security types of jobs n all.,though they are right at their part..

Well., my friends say that i have an amazing fashion knowlege n all the latest updates.i help them choose their outfits,and also design their clothes. So..Actually i want a part time online job ,where i can send my designs according to the customers need. Can u plzz help me,i seriously need this.. Please respond.. N ur blog was superb. :) thank you. :)

If you are really serious about getting a job in fashion design I would suggest that you create a blog for yourself. At the very least this is a good starting point for you to get your name out there and on the internet. Second build up a portfolio of what you have done and shop it around both online and offline. I did some preliminary searching online and found out that there are many sites that provide valued information for those (including you) that want to have a design business of their own. So doing a little online searching will bring you information about the type of career that you want.

There even may be the possibility that you can get a grant for fashion designing! There is one organization that has a $25,000 grant for a fashion designer and to even help them prepare a runway show in New York! You may be eligible for that. The biggest question to ask your self is how badly do you want to be a fashion designer. Do you want it bad enough to put in the time to find the information that you will need to get started?

Facebook Is Hiring!

Normally I don't like the "pop up" ads that appear anytime I'm browsing the Internet. But once in a while you will find something that you may want to look further into.

One of the ads that popped up when I was browsing the Internet was about the well-know Facebook company.
Face book is a well-known name so this is something that you may want to look into. Their requirement for the job are that you have a computer, Internet access and knowing how to navigate it.
