Gig jobs are more flexible alternatives to traditional, in-office, full-time jobs with a single company. Gig work can open up new opportunities whether your goals are making more money, learning a new skill or meeting new people. This class will introduce you to the many gig opportunities available and help you determine which are best suited to your needs and interests.
  • Explore the definition of "the gig economy" to understand its full breadth and myriad of opportunities.
  • Understand the 5 key strategies needed to succeed in the gig economy.
  • Discuss potential pitfalls and how to avoid unwanted surprises.
  • Discover resources to help you find the gig opportunities that are the best fit for you.
This class goes beyond a basic Internet search for flexible jobs and delves into the broad range of opportunities that are available out there - but often under the radar. Lynn O'Connell has been a workforce development specialist and trainer for years and has a passion for using gig opportunities to open new doors for individuals so they can reimagine their work and life.
