    Anyone willing to hire me?

    Hi, my name is Jeff Verkoeyen, and I am going to be 16 this next august, and I was wondering if someone here would be willing to hire me as a sort of part-time deal.

    I am looking for a job where I can just make 100$ in the next 2 weeks, because I need spending money for a trip I'm going on. I am willing to do pretty much anything programming related, and I'll learn on the job as needs be.

    These are the languages/API's/whatnot I'm proficient in:
    C/C++
    Win32
    OpenGL
    HTML
    JavaScript

    These I have a grip on and understand, but am not as proficient as the above ^^
    DirectX
    ASP
    Assembly

    I use Microsoft Visual C++ for my programs, and I have had a lot of experience in working with developing Win32 apps.

    If you would be willing to hire me, please contact me at:
    bloodright@msn.com
    or just post here. I am hoping to get a paypal account soon, so that is probably how we will exchange the money........

    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. And like I said, I am more than willing to at least try to do whatever you can suggest.

    -edit-
    and if you would like to see any previous work i've done, you can visit my website:
    http://ivgda.skylockgames.com/

    Please contact me within the next couple of days, because I'm leaving on the 27th for my trip.

    -thank you in advance

    Seriously though...this isnt the place to tout for work...firstly it's against the board rules for soliciting.....also as many of the members are students or coders themselves, the audience you are selling to wont yeild many good responses

    No offense, really, but I doubt there are many people willing to hire (and pay a hefty price for) a 15 year old to code their applications/webpages in a relatively short 2-week time period.

    Perhaps you should be looking into more traditional options? Like Fordy said, you could clean cars for 15 bucks a car, and basically $$$$$ yourself out as a chore boy for others.

    Or you could get a quick job at Burger King or something. Even at minimum wage you could make 100$

    As this is OT and against our rules.... closed.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
