ONLINE: Nontraditional Gig Work, Gig Your Way To A Better Life

Welcome to the Gig Economy. We will explore your nontraditional work options and how you can start your own business. The aim of this class is to empower job seekers to find work in the gig economy, where large numbers of people work as independent contractors and freelancers instead of full-time employees. The gig economy is different from the traditional economy of full-time employees who focus on lifelong career growth and stay with each employer for long periods of time. The gig economy has grown rapidly over the past few years and expanded exponentially since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, due to the increased reliance on gig workers to home deliver necessities to consumers.  Gig work allows individuals to focus on their families during the day and pick-up work where and when it fits into their schedule.  The COVID-19 crisis has upended the traditional 9-5 working world and caused many to pursue gig work for additional, or even primary, income.

ONLINE: Nontraditional Gig Work, Gig Your Way To A Better Life

Welcome to the Gig Economy. We will explore your nontraditional work options and how you can start your own business. The aim of this class is to empower job seekers to find work in the gig economy, where large numbers of people work as independent contractors and freelancers instead of full-time employees. The gig economy is different from the traditional economy of full-time employees who focus on lifelong career growth and stay with each employer for long periods of time. The gig economy has grown rapidly over the past few years and expanded exponentially since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, due to the increased reliance on gig workers to home deliver necessities to consumers.  Gig work allows individuals to focus on their families during the day and pick-up work where and when it fits into their schedule.  The COVID-19 crisis has upended the traditional 9-5 working world and caused many to pursue gig work for additional, or even primary, income.

ONLINE: Nontraditional Gig Work, Gig Your Way To A Better Life

Welcome to the Gig Economy. We will explore your nontraditional work options and how you can start your own business. The aim of this class is to empower job seekers to find work in the gig economy, where large numbers of people work as independent contractors and freelancers instead of full-time employees. The gig economy is different from the traditional economy of full-time employees who focus on lifelong career growth and stay with each employer for long periods of time. The gig economy has grown rapidly over the past few years and expanded exponentially since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, due to the increased reliance on gig workers to home deliver necessities to consumers.  Gig work allows individuals to focus on their families during the day and pick-up work where and when it fits into their schedule.  The COVID-19 crisis has upended the traditional 9-5 working world and caused many to pursue gig work for additional, or even primary, income.
