I'm AngelCali in-world, and I'm brand new but already hooked (waiting for my new credit card to come in for a premium membership).

I'd really like to work in the more adult side of Second Life, as I have experience with that in real life - but I'm also interested in almost any other kind of job. I would need a little bit of training, but in order to get experience I really want to just dive right in (as it's the best way for me to learn).

I'm friendly and engaging, I like to keep my avatar cute, and I'm age verified in that I have payment info on file (I am 23). I have experience in writing and Photoshop, making advertisements and more. I also have real life experience in hosting, adult work, and sales.

I would love to work for you!

Welcome to SL.  A bit of advice...

Most employers will not hire you until your avatar is 30 to as much as 90 days old, depending on the job.  This is because while some employers may be willing to train you for the specific job, (although top venues with the highest paying jobs generally also require experience) they are not willing to spend time training you about how SL works or basic SL skills. It takes at least 30 days to learn the minimum there is to know.  They also want to know that you are going to stick with SL and not disappear on them.

If you are going to work in public you will definitely need to lose the newb look and most likely need to have an attractive avatar with top quality skin, hair, eyes, and an appropriate wardrobe as well as a good AO.  Some employers will want you to also have a mesh body too.  So you will need to make an investment in your avatar.  Since you are putting payment info on file you can buy $L's to purchase these items.  Once you have your avatar together, get a good quality picture of yourself for your profile and also to have to submit with job applications, as some will require this.

All this is required because people that work with the public, which most jobs require, have to deal with other avatars of all ages, including enforcing rules.  Someone whose avatar is too young, or too newb looking or acting just isn't going to command the respect of some older residents and so be ineffective in their job.

Only work in SL if you like your job and have fun doing it.  Don't expect to earn much at all, as most jobs just pay in $L tips, and just pennies on the dollar in RL money.   If you are good at your job, you may earn enough for a bit of pocket money.  A few may earn enough to pay rent on a small modest home. The people that make the money in SL are those with talent that are able to create quality content and have a  successful business selling it to other residents.  However even some very talented people don't have successful businesses. 

You are much better off using the same time you'd spend working in SL working a bit extra in RL or re-prioritizing your expendable income to budget SL expenses.  Use that money to buy your $L's.  That's what most people do.
