I worked around 15 years as a phototypesetter, also doing layout and design for a university for their brochures, magazines, and other things for them. I also worked for a company called Parkseed parttime during those same years typesetting their catalogs. I worked for a local printing company parttime when they needed me typesetting and disigning brochures, etc. I then went back to school and got some medical background and worked as a medical/clerical worker in hospital and doctors office. I am now middle aged and do not work. But I need extra income and would love to pick up some extra money working at home on line in this area.
