vfinley posted Employment Needed on the Nepal forum on April 07, 2014:
I am moving to Nepal this summer and would love to make some income. I am fully aware of the challenges for foreigners working in Nepal. I am a social worker in NYC with 7 years experience in the field. Most opportunities in this area of work in Nepal are volunteer only. For months I have searched for jobs with INGO/NGO UN/US Embassy but I do not have experience in project management, nor am I fluent in Nepali. Anyone have other suggestions? I am open to other types of employment as well. Thanks!

In a nutshell, the tourists or expats learn local crafts like wooden masks, stone carving and cook traditional food at either the craftsmen's house or workshop and then get to take the products they made themselves back to their home country.

I have never traveled like I am going to in August. I just got a job at a winery and another at a school near Kathmandu. I am starting to think about what I need to put into my bags to travel around the world with me. What is appropiate clothing in Nepal? I have heard covered shoulders and covered knees from various sites. I have also heard that places like Kathmandu, women sometimes show knees. Any tip is a good tip for me! Thank you so much!!

Clothing is pretty relaxed in KTM now. Shorts are ok for both male and female. You will see Nepali and foreigner wearing them. Make sure your shorts are not too short though. Showing the knees are ok but much above that would get you unwanted attention. Too tight of shorts that reveal every curve and jiggle is not a good idea either. Many wear tank tops or muscle shirts without getting a second look. Again make sure it is not too revealing. Bra straps or low cut fronts of shirts will get comments and be uncomfortable. The people who say stay covered completely are not up to date with KTM and may be referring to a remote village where things are still as they have been in the past. Just relax and dress in a respectful but comfortable way. Good shoes are key but you wont want to wear trekking boots all over town. Good regular shoes are enough. Toeless shoes can cause problems due to bricks and rocks everywhere. Kick one and you will wish you had your toes covered. I have been in KTM for 3.5 years full time. Ask me anything

I am going to visit Nepal for 3 weeks in September before deciding whether I want to move there.I'm dubious about travelling around alone as a female and was wondering if there is a way of contacting people or guides to be there on my travels. Thanks!

I am visiting nepal in August through, I believe, January. Looking for friends, work and a place to stay. I have a few potential places lined up but would love to set something in stone before I get there! Even if it is just a hour set aside for tea, I would be grateful to make some friends! KW

Does anyone know of a piano I could use for practise in Kathmandu? I have made various enquiries which have led nowhere. I would be very grateful for any solid information (I have been sent on various wild goose chases so far!) Thanks, Robert
