I by no means intend to stop contributing what I can to TeX.SE, but a recent experience begs the question... After helping a friend designing a flyer for a telecom company (for which she got decent remuneration), I find myself wondering whether there is a market for freelance TeX-related jobs, on which I could perhaps make some extra bucks for rainy days.
As an amateur TeXnician with limited general knowledge of graphic design, but with a growing portfolio of decent-looking documents produced with TeX & friends,
- Who, if anyone, should I attempt to sell my TeX skills to?
- Would, say, a publishing company be interested? Or do they generally seek people with a much stronger background in TeX & friends than mine?
- If you are directly getting paid on account of your TeX skills, how did you get started?
Note: I'm not sure whether this question is more appropriate on meta or on the main site. Feel free to migrate it, if necessary. It may be also be more suited as a community wiki, but I feel this isn't my call.
