WORK IN DHAKA ALL YEAR ROUND

Please edit this section to tell travellers what kinds of short term work is available in Dhaka all year round. Mention skills that are in demand here more than other places. For example, if you can get some work as a translator in Dhaka but it is as hard as anywhere else, don't list it. If it's a region in China that cannot get enough English translators.... I think you get the idea.

What kinds of work are there in Dhaka in autumn? Maybe it's harvest time, but do people need the help of foreigners for either cheap labour or expertise? This is the kind of thing we need to know here.

WINTER

There is no special winter activity in Dhaka except for some local food festivals. Some other common activity that takes place in the winter season (November to February) are Month long International Trade fair (takes place in January) and National Book fair (February). The weather is reasonably good than the other times of the year because of less rain and heat.
