What’s a Gig?

A Gig is work that is temporary, not full time, of many types, and can require multiple skills. Giggers are self-employed. They do not receive employer-paid benefits such as health insurance. Uber drivers are often used as examples of the new Gig Economy, along with eBay sellers, Airbnb hosts, and bloggers. Contributors to the Gig Economy are self-employed workers.

I became too comfortable in a job I loved and I stayed too long. It was very hard to find the next good fit. I was a decade older , the economy was a mess, and I focused only on full time traditional employment. Worse than that, I had no idea how to begin looking for a job.
