The news is out about the gig economy and it’s good for baby boomers. If you’ve got some excellent work experience or the desire to try something new, you can connect with a wide array of opportunities to earn some money, stay engaged, meet new people and be part of an organization in a more flexible way than the typical long-term employment situation. Whether you want to unretire or move on from what you’ve been doing, the gig economy could be a great path to designing the life you’re going for. There are opportunities to work on a contract basis, remotely, project-by-project, part-time and more. You can even take your gig on the road. In fact, flexible options are the key to attracting workplace talent and employers have caught on.
If the gig economy sounds intriguing, but you need some fresh ideas about what it could look like for you, Amava has some. We dedicate ourselves to this stuff, so here you go:
