Remember this Dashain vacation when we returned to our villages only to be bombarded with questions like “Babu/Nani, you are already this old. Did you start working yet?” or “Oho, still asking your baba for money at this age?!”

If not this, you must probably remember spending hours surfing the internet trying to find authentic platforms for freelancing after knowing Hunk A from Department B  was freelancing and earning some dough.

We all have been there at some point… some of us even gave up halfway because we were overwhelmed by the exhausting procedures. Pitiful are those who have had first-hand experience with scammers or even legal troubles with their clients.

And the list of such plights continues…..

We have had our fair share of bad experiences because of our inadequate knowledge and preparation before venturing into this labyrinth.

That’s why we at LOCUS are here with a 3-day workshop on Freelancing, covering everything you will need to know about the freelancing market!
