Find a company or individuals which you can work with and gain valuable experience. It is your choice if you would like to start by going to a course and finding experience later on or starting immediately with someone and learning hands on while working. At first you might find it hard, since it is all new for you, but always keep in mind that it is for your future. You can climb the ladder and may end up with your own company or becoming a freelancer (self employed). Due not having experience at first you might not have a high wage, but it may increase by becoming better and more efficient. Don’t be afraid to try something new, everyone makes mistakes at first, but from those mistakes you learn for next time. At Tminta we believe in becoming a freelancer. List yourself as a freelancer in the following link. If you do not have an account sign up now!
Customers are important, try to understand their need and if possible meet or exceed their expectations. An example would be cleaning after you have done the job. Remember that they will pass on the word that you have done a great job, and recommend you to other clients.
