What Students Say


New York City

“Samaschool taught me to be strategic about freelancing. To really look at the skills and connections I have and utilize them. The opportunity is there, you might just not know about it yet.”  


Oakland, CA

“Gig work gives me exposure to lots of different tasks. I’m now able to land jobs I wasn’t able to get before because of lack of experience. I can pick jobs to get me where I want to be in my career.”
