There are a lot of opportunities online to extra cash daily and at the end of the month you can have something between U$ 100 – U$ 300.
However if you are a designer and if you want to work online, better be something related to design, right?
There are several “online jobs” regarding user experience tests, site tests, web design, bugs and apps.
Besides if you are already a digital designer UX – UI or want to learn more it is an interesting experience as a design tester you are at backstage, testing and learning also.
