Clickworker Tripping

Clickworker on tour When I got the opportunity to do an internship in London at the end of last year, I jumped at the chance. I was in my third year at a full-time position and needed a change of scenery. This chance came just at the right time.

Unfortunately, it was clear from the beginning that the internship would be unpaid. I had neither large financial reserves nor did I have a sponsor to pay my way. I began to look for something I could do alongside my internship. After seemingly endless forms, phone interviews, deadlines and signatures, I was promised the internship position for three months.

Now, London – as many know – is a pricey city and the cost of living there can make a German fully appreciate the relatively low costs back home. And there were still the simple things I had to sort out: rent, subway, food. Luckily, as a clickworker, I have the opportunity to earn a little extra on the side. All I needed was a computer, an Internet connection and a bunch of good ideas. Since my internship was only part-time, I had open afternoons and evenings to do research, translate and write. My language skills are now working out quite well for me and this metropolitan city is a great place to explore and form ideas.

I´m glad to have had this London experience and know that being a clickworker has helped make it possible. There´s even enough money left over for another portion of fish and chips.

Hallo Rieke,

Interessanter Erfahrungsbericht. Nach London würde es mich auch ziehen. Tolle Stadt!

Darf ich fragen wieviele Stunden du am Tag für Clickworker gearbeitet hast?!
Ich kann mir nämlich kaum vorstellen, dass die Einnahmen hier tatsächlich den Aufwand lohnen.

Ich selbst probiere seit einiger Zeit verschiedene Plattformen im Internet aus, auf denen man Geld verdienen kann und habe darüber auch ein E-Book geschrieben.

Allerdings habe ich keine einzige gefunden, auf der man mehr als ein winziges ‘Taschengeld’ bekommt…

Liebe Grüße und noch eine schöne Zeit in London!
