Hi everybody!
Apologies for a potentially stupid question but could anybody please give me some pointers on how to get a remote job that would mostly involve HTML and CSS coding (like PSD to HTML or something).  Don?t need anything fancy, just a little something to support myself while beefing up my skills. Hope I am not too far off topic.
Thanks!

I don't think a company would give a stranger a remote job unless that person has an EXCELLENT reputation. Normally, a company would hire you, have you work in the office for a while (until they can assess your skills, work habits, maturity level, etc.) and, if they decide you can be trusted to manage yourself out of the office, then let you work remotely.

The only other option I can think of is to do freelance work. There are many freelance sites on the Internet, for example, odesk, elance, staff, hiretheworld, freelancer, vworker, and many others. Basically, you would sign up for an account, and then submit bids for small jobs that people are looking to get done. If your bid wins the piece-work, you do the work and then the site manager makes sure the buyer transmits the payment to you.

HOWEVER, keep in mind that you would be bidding for jobs against people from all over the world. There are many skilled people living in poor countries so they can drive the bids pretty low. On the other hand, if you are skilled and can do a few jobs per month, it can be a good source of extra cash.
So if I press Alt F4... What?

I certainly have. But trying to get something out of those freelance sites it's like digging a bottomless pit. The only people who actually earn money are the once who run them...

Looking for a job is matter of attitude. Assume a positive attitude. Remember, as a student or graduate you are now looking for the job you want. People who have already decided they do not have a chance, are not likely to succeed. Rate the following statements "True" or "False", taking note of those that rated false, determining what you might do to improve.

    I am pleased with my self-image.
    I have fulfilled some of my personal goals.
    I consciously work toward achieving my goals.
    I know what obstacles may stand between me and my goals and have devised a plan to get around them.
    I have a long-range career objective.
    I am confident the career program I have now is helping me reach that objective.
    I am continually developing my technical skills.
    I am continually developing my social skills.
    My career plan is flexible enough that I am free to alter it if I so desire.
    I have an up-to-date resume prepared.
    I seek advice and guidance of others to get an objective view on my career.
    I thoroughly prepare before job interviews, so I know as much as possible about the company and position I am applying to.
    I prepare questions to ask at an interview.
    I do my best to look neat and act courteous at an interview.
    I treat all my co-workers/students with fairness, honesty and respect.

You have to post on your CV's projects you have done, even simple ones like parsers, examples of a website etc. Its best if you put lines of code on your biggest project. I got a job like this in 2 weeks.

Been looking for a job for 6 months before that, without result. Posting my projects i did in spare time in C++/Java Got me 2 final interviews, and I could choose between companies I wanted to join! AMAZING :-) Do that, you will thank me later.

Hey there, You can always try out your technical skills at sites like ODESK AND FREELANCER. They pretty much appreciate your skills where you will find clients offering jobs relating to your skills. You can also grow your portfolio and make some handful of $$$
