To look just be on the realm of grabbing a job as a copywriter, you could
also look at doing some freelance copywriting. If you're not happy with
the amount of money that you could make within the copywriting field, you
could look at supplementing this on the side by bidding for projects at
either of these two following websites: www.elance.com or
www.directfreelance.com. On either of these two websites, you are able to
bid on projects that are listed as well as set up a profile to showcase
your best work. You can create search criteria so that jobs that meet
what you want can be e-mailed to you. This is a great way to supplement
your income.

Copywriting jobs are out there for the taking. According to the Bureau
of Labor Statistics, copywriting jobs will grow in line with the general
economy over the next decade. This means that you will see probably
about average growth for the industry but you could see a great deal more
growth if you focus on Internet copywriting. This is a very flexible
industry in which you have potentially a greater chance at dictating your
terms and conditions and how you would like to work. This is something
that you can look into when you start talking with a potential employer.
Do not underestimate also the opportunity to work as a freelancer because
you could command higher rates and this would increase the amount of
flexibility you would have within your life.
