Answer by keshii
no, it’s perfect. i’m 19 and pursuing personal science. you can get an internship and then you’ll get work experiance. just get back to collage and you’ll be fine. collage is key for a personal job. if you dont go to collage, no one will hire you =(.
i recommend going to collage part time , take like 2 classes at a time and work. dont work at superstores or fast food, get a job as an office worker or something.
another option is to get a military scolarship, goto collage then work with the DoD.

Question by smartbiz85: Where can I find an advertising program where I can acquire money with pay per click?
I’m having problems with Google Adsense. Its Google’s advertising program. There program lets you display adds on your site so you can acquire money by pay per click. There program searches your site then displays ads relational to your content. The problem is that its to close to my content. I would like a advertising program where I can select keywords and the ads will show up accordingly. I want a advertising program where I control the ads. HELP !

Best answer:

Answer by imisidro
Yahoo Publishers Network is the only contextual advertising program I know that grants its publishers some control in choosing the keywords for a page http://publisher.yahoo.com/

However, YPN is still in beta program and acquirable only to US publishers. It is not as simple to get into as Adsense, but you can apply. It sometimes takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months to know if you’ve been accepted.
