writes "This is a personal story, and I thought this group may have some insights that could help someone. I have a close friend in the Midwest who was a very good programmer back in the mainframe days. Her skills were in COBOL, CICS, and related applications such as Easytrieve. Of course, those days are gone, and her hunt for full time work has long passed. Now she is trying to survive on social security and what money she saved. It would help her a lot to find some work she could do from home over the Internet (TN3270/TSO, etc) that might pay her one to two hundred dollars a week. She has looked for such opportunities on Dice, Monster and other sites that claim specialization (justcoboljobs.com) to no avail. It looks like a hundred a week is too small for these sites. Any suggestions?"
