What if I never worked online before?
That is absolutely okay. During the project, we will show you exactly everything you need to know to get started working online, even if you have no experience (from how to find jobs, to identifying your unique marketable skills, to pitching to online clients, and so much more!)
What if I already work, can I still join the project?
