Have you considered the Gig Economy?

 

Have you ever considered driving for Uber to make a little extra cash on the side? If you have, you are thinking about becoming a part of the gig economy, a big segment of the U.S. workforce (roughly 1/3 of the working population) that provides freelance, contract-based work. Gig workers, aka independent contractors and freelancers, work in a variety of industries from transportation and hospitality (Uber & AirBNB) to creative (graphic designers, writers, web developers) to event-based services (musicians, photographers).

Freelance work can be a great way to gain experience in a new field of interest, without fully committing to a career path in that field. Not all freelancers are created equal – some have a day job and choose to gig on the side. Others choose to fully enter into the freelance lifestyle to earn their living. Still others enter the gig economy out of necessity because they cannot find a “regular job.”

Gigging has its pros and cons. On the upside, freelance workers typically enjoy greater flexibility, independence, and control over their work lives than a traditional worker. However, downsides can include no benefits, little job stability and income unpredictability, and difficulty collecting compensation from clients, to name a few. It’s a lifestyle that requires a great deal of self-motivation, and it’s not for everyone. Do you think you might like to give freelancing a try? Head to TaskRabbit to look for work opportunities, and check out this article for some great tips on how to get started. You can also find some great video content via Jayhawk Ready; click "gig economy" under "explore."
