Bangladeshi existing Skill Profiles are getting jobs through renowned international online marketplace ( Upwork, Fiverr, Skill Profiles, skillBangladesh….etc) and serving foreign clients. Employers/Recruiters who are outsourcing their jobs to these marketplaces are expecting international standard deliverables from freelancers. Foreign Employers/Recruiters/Companies consider soft skills especially Communication Skills  strongly. If a Skill Profile is experienced and can do the given job perfectly still he needs to communicate, submit proposals and convince the clients with competitive professionalism & negotiations skills which is a big concern for Bangladeshi Skill Profiles. Gaining soft skills is the first condition for the freelancers to win the jobs. Online marketplace is now very competitive and our Skill Profiles should be equipped with soft skills to take advantage over other countries. We recommend to Introduce a soft skills ( Package or a module ) consist of below soft skill sets-

Basic English ( Writing & Spoken )

Presentation skills

Negotiation skills 

Proposal writing/Drafting

Leadership Skills & 


After completing the above module or doing it parallelly they can gather technical skills required to perform the jobs. Recent market trends show once off basic jobs like logo design, web development, link share, reviews, basic digital marketing  etc. are available with very small amounts of payments and our Skill Profiles engage them heavily with these. Neighboring Countries trying to grab expensive jobs and not bidding for cheap jobs which usually come to us. Skill Profiles with basic technical skills getting this type of job done. Same time Accounting & HRM, Sales & Marketing and Admin & Office Support which are the most demandable and expensive jobs, are being taken care of by other countries. Once employers receive good service from a country or a group of Skill Profiles belonging to a nation then it is tough to enter in that category. Bangladesh is a country full of graduates from public & private universities including National Universities. Developing them with Accounting & Consulting and Sales & Marketing beside ICT is easier for grabbing a market share. Good thing is Accounting & HRM, Sales & Marketing and Admin & Office Support jobs are computer enabled and online based. There are courses and certification of these available locally already. All we need to make aware of it and establish a learning path.
