Hubdhaka, a leading co-working and shared work space is proud to be the venue and community outreach partner for this event.
The idea of freelancing as a career is getting more popular in Bangladesh day-by-day. More people are interested in a working condition which gives them the freedom of creativity, flexible timing and a personalized working space. But many of the freelancers face problems with getting a good profile and suitable numbers of jobs. This event will be offering a solution of these problems with multiple workshops which will help answer these initial questions and give a basic guideline to this sector. The workshops will cover such topics as: client communication, tone, language and approach of initial communications, proposal writing and knowledge sharing and networking in order to seek the right jobs.
The first of “Freelance 101” workshops will be mentored by Saidur Mamun Khan; Country Manager, Bangladesh of Elance and oDesk and G Samdany, prominent career consultant and communication guru. The first workshop will be held on 6th September 2014 (Saturday) from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM at hubdhaka co-working space (Islam Plaza 9th floor, Main road # 3, Section # 7, Pallabi, Mirpur, Dhaka, next to Mirpur Central Jame Masjid).
