APPLICATION DETAILS

  • This is a Learning + Earning type of setup (50-50%). The learning part is equally important.

  • You can apply for roles 1,2,3 or 4. Preference is given to individuals with diverse skills and can handle more than one role.

  • All work and correspondence is completely online. You will never have to physically show up anywhere for the above mentioned work.

TRN charges roughly Rs. 300 to Rs.800 per hour/page for consultation to the clients. 

  • Roles 3 and 4 are related to long term vision of TRN. We want individuals who are willing to share the same vision of TRN and stick around for a while.

This entails having an 'Expert profile' on the website which can give you good web visibility and space to put up your skills.
