With so many Americans experiencing unemployment, reduced income, and being furloughed due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, many are looking for work or require supplemental income. For these individuals, gig work, defined as on-demand work done as a single task or for a specified amount of time, has become a valid option that many are exploring. While gig work offers benefits such as flexibility and variety, the innate instability may prevent many from making it their primary source of income. Fortunately, gig opportunities are not limited to companies such as Uber, Lyft, and GrubHub. Many professionals are finding it possible to perform task-related services, such as writing business plans, web development, and design services as a supplement to their primary jobs as either a secondary source of income or as a means of cultivating a burgeoning career.
