i know you sent me a message and i can't figure out where it is now. i think it was that you're a student in austin and wanting to know the job market here. you'll find that reporting is feast or famine. you're so busy some weeks you think you'll never find the time to breathe. then all of a sudden it's dead.
the market here has been so-so here. lately not great, but i can always change, and most likely will.
one bit of advice i can tell you is not to give up. you might come to a point where you feel stuck and think it's not worth it, but it is. i do really like the job. i wish we were paid more, but i love the freedom and working from home.
i'd be happy to answer any other questions, or if you just need some encouragement. my regular email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
