Skill Arbitrage trains young professionals from India and other developing countries to get international remote jobs, remote internships and freelance work from startups & SMEs in US, UK, Canada, UAE and other advanced economies, so that they can earn in dollars no matter where they live.
With more businesses around the world getting comfortable with remote workers, and realising that they can access a much better talent pool at a fraction of the cost by hiring remotely across borders, it has become increasingly important to help Indian youth to identify, prepare for and pitch for these cross-border career opportunities. Skill Arbitrage courses and placement support have been especially popular with housewives and mothers of young children, professionals looking for side gigs and extra income, digital natives looking to escape office cubicles & those living in smaller cities who cannot move to large metros to find jobs as they now do not have to restrict themselves to a small local job market anymore.
