Title

How and why you should be taking advantage of the gig economy right now

Summary

The worldwide pandemic abruptly and significantly changed (and continues to change) not only where, but how people work. With the majority of the employees working remotely, companies are reevaluating traditional hiring requirements like location and a 9-5 schedule. Employees should also be reevaluating how they grow and market their skills to take advantage of the changing landscape of work. I’d like to discuss how and why exploring gig work is essential for current job seekers.
