Looking for something fast?

If you feel exhausted from looking for a full-time position it might be time to step back and consider taking a gig job! ...OR if you have a job, but would like to make more money this is the post for you!

A gig job (aka “side-hustle”) is something that provides the money you need to survive NOW. In most cases, you are able to make your own hours and be your own boss!

Here are some GREAT gigs to consider

• [Instacart] (https://careers.instacart.com/openings/) (shop and deliver groceries) Great for people who like structure, organization, and those little details. You can also make tips!

• [Rover] (https://www.rover.com/become-a-sitter/?ref=header) (get paid to play with dogs) Perfect for those who love animals! Not a dog person? No worries, you can also pick and choose which types of pets you would like to work with. Learn how to make the most money with your Rover experience [here] (https://www.thesimpledollar.com/how-to-make-money-dog-sitting-through-rover/) in this article.

• [Doordash] (https://www.doordash.com/dasher/signup/) (food delivery) Bring home the bacon for yourself and for others in this role where you can make over $10 an hour delivering food from local restaurants.

• [Lyft] (https://www.lyft.com/driver) (driver) Love to drive? You can get paid for it! New drivers have options to earn some really great cash bonuses. Set your own hours and drive when YOU want to! No car? No problem you can also rent one from Lyft's rental program. Find out more info [here] (https://help.lyft.com/hc/en-us/sections/360000293648-Express-Drive-Rental-Car-Program)

• [Amazon Flex] (https://flex.amazon.com/?) (package delivery) Set your own hours and use your own vehicle to deliver packages for Amazon. You can make upwards of $18-25 per hour!

Questions? Please ask!

Have you ever worked a gig job? How was it?? : )

No car? Rent one AND make $$$

If you are interested in becoming a driver for Lyft, but either don't want to use or car or don't currently have one...no problem!

Lyft's Express Drive Program allows you to rent a car and start earning right away!

Here are somethings to know:

  • Lyft deducts rental costs from your earnings so it's all in one place. No surprise charges!

  • There's no long-term commitment with Express Drive. Keep your rental for as long as you'd like and return anytime after your first seven days.

  • You must be at least 25 to reserve a rental.

Want to learn more? Check out more info here from Lyft.

Finding something app based.

Hi follow Jobcasers, There are some apps you can try to find something to tide you over. Try Wonolo, TaskRabbit, Bluecrew, Gigwalk or Adecco. They are somewhat like a temp agency however, you choose where and when you work.

Gig Job Caveats

A gig is a job that allows you to work for companies as a contractor. Uber, Lyft, Instacart, Postmates, etc...

These are great opportunities for folks looking to get a few extra bucks in the bank.

There is one big caveat to know about these positions. They are 1099 contractor positions, which means that federal, state, and other taxes are not withheld from your pay. This means more money in your pocket up front, but keep in mind, Uncle Sam wants his due.

These companies have to file paperwork with the state and federal government that shows who was paid and how much. At the end of the year, when it is time to file taxes, you will receive a 1099, 1099-MISC, 1099-K, etc...

You will use these forms to file your taxes for the year. You will owe your share of taxes at this time. Make sure that each payment you receive, you are setting enough aside to pay these taxes.

Robots the future of gig delivery jobs?

Saw this video of a Postmates' Robot doing a delivery in Los Angeles and it got it me wondering, are gig delivery jobs like Postmates, Uber Eats and DoorDash at risk if these robots prove to be successful? Would you still use their services if they were taking away jobs with these robots and in return lowering their delivery fees? #gig # #deliverydriver #jobsearchLosAngeles #TTT

I would not support this if it took away jobs. There is something important about having a person involved that can make rational choices. People aren't perfect, but then again neither are robots.

What it's like to be an Instacart Shopper - Part 1

You see a gig job opportunity but you don't know what it's like to actually work at doing the job. Well, I've found a treasure trove of what jobs are like IRL (that's millennial speak for "in real life"). That honey pot of job life content is Tik Tok. I've found this creator who is about to start a job in a few weeks but wanted to make some extra cash by being an Instacart shopper. Here is her first day. See how Day 2 went on her Instacart Shopper experience.

@coffeeeelover

so i was an instacart shopper for the first time today, gonna see how this goes over the next few days ##adayinthelife ##dayinmylife ##vlog ##over25 ##fyp
