My name is Dragos, I’m an Android developer located in Eastern Europe, Romania, and I used to work for an outsourcing company located in Bucharest.
Before the pandemic, I was not allowed to work remotely ( for security and other reasons, etc.) even if the project I was on was for a United Kingdom company.
Then guess what happened? For more than 1 year, I worked from home without any issues. Not only me, over 1500 people from the same company.
During this period, I never thought that I could work independently for companies located in other countries. I heard about people who do it, but finding an Android position will be very difficult.
Meanwhile, on LinkedIn, I constantly received all kinds of job suggestions. All sounded nice, but when I asked about the salary, I noticed that most of them would not offer me more than 5% of what I was getting now.
I wanted to increase my income, but I had no safe solutions. One day I received this email where Brennan Dunn ( a big promoter of freelancing work ) told me about a new course. A few hours later, I bought it for $ 499. It was a lot of money, but I trusted him and his work, and I was not wrong.
One month later, after the course, I had two remote contract offers.
One that would increase my income by 50% and one that doubled my current salary. The offers were also for great companies. The salary part was great, but I also got lots of benefits like unlimited holidays, or E 1000 annual training etc.
I can’t tell you how happy I was, and then I thought I could help other mobile developers.
I have the process to find jobs. All I need is a list of people looking for the same thing as I was only one month ago.
