    If I may be honest, your "i" should be in caps.

    Spelling, grammar and punctuation are really important.

    Helen, I'll be glad to help as much as possible.  I'm not online much these days (for a few more weeks), so that may not be MUCH, but....

    1.  Like Jane mentioned, spelling, grammar, and punctuation are really important.  I can almost literally feel your tension and frustration "screaming" from your page (including your very accurate anti-scam Hub), so the first recommendation is:  Please try to slow down.  Relax.  Take a deep breath, walk the dog, whatever works for you when things are tough.

    2.  To "fix" the technical side of your writing, you can either (a) use Spell Check (which I detest and do not use), or (b) proofread, re-proofread, publish--and then proofread again. I find it helps to read my stuff aloud, though when my wife is sleeping a few feet away (we're in a small camp trailer), that is not always practical.

    3.   It helps other Hubbers to know you better if you are willing to include a few paragraphs on your Profile that give a bit more rounded background.  Nothing wrong with what you have, but fleshing it out a touch couldn't hurt.

    4.  In closing, just a note of sympathy for your two weeks of online job hunting frustration:  I've tackled it (intermittently) for nearly 3 YEARS now...and still haven't found that "magic online job" you find so elusive.  There truly is a lot of junk on the Net.
