So I'm at a university right now, studying programming, but due to a difficult personal situation, I may not be able to find a job as a bachelor of IT in my hometown and I would prefer not to leave town just yet, until my girlfriend is done with her college as well (yeah, I'm that lame...)
Anyway, I was wondering, after I get my bachelor's degree and I commit to self-studying and perfecting my knowledge in C, C++, C#, Java and PhP, will I be able to find a job online as a freelancer or perhaps in the WFH section, and make enough money to survive for a year or two only by working online?
I'm not talking anything huge, like $1k/month or so would be OK for me. Does anyone have any experience working freelance programming?
If so, how did you start, and what's your avg pay per month?
