  • We are good but almost many clients need work history, so that's my question is, is there any way we can get start up work ? you r right i will start talking to my references first, that's i must do. – Kuldip Mca 12 years ago
  • But then, stuents should not work freelance. And yes, "no work history" means never worked professinally in programming. Nothing else. – Net Tecture 12 years ago

How should we approach clients and establish trust with out any work history?

Simple: don't. Get a job. Get a profile, get a name, get a work history.

There are ton of bad consultants around. Why should I hire one who does not even have any work history? You sound more like someone who should get a job as a programming trainee, instead of opening a consulting company.

  • We have work history but not as independent, but work in company. I have 6 years of exp. in .net. I am strong in Microsoft technology. – Kuldip Mca 12 years ago
  • So why do you say you have no work history then? Realize that running a business means marketing yourself. Btw., 6 years makes you not junior, but not senior. – Net Tecture 12 years ago
