Some industries may fade away or become obsolete but often they’re replaced by the
NEXT BIG THING. One recent change for the better we’ve seen has been the rise of the “gig economy.”
Because of companies like Lyft, Uber and Etsy, the industry is exploding. To help you figure out how you can make the gig economy work for you we’re having a “Gig Opportunity Fair” this September 23, 2015 from 4-7 at the West Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.

What is the Gig Economy

Generally speaking, a “gig” is work that’s done on a contract basis. It’s not a job. You’re not an employee. You’re working on a self-employed/contract basis as a 1099 contractor. Usually, you sign up by using a simple app on your computer or phone.

Gig Opportunities Let You:
          • Set your own hours
          • Determine your own rates or allow you to make money based on your schedule
          • Work from your home (or the coffee shop on the corner)
          • Use your own vehicle
SCSF Gig Opportunity Fair
The Gig Opportunity Fair will have companies that offer online projects for: administrative assistants, bookkeepers/accountants, programmers, designers, and more.

Or if you prefer working away from your desk, use their app or website to find gigs in other fields. Caregiving, housekeeping, delivery/drivers, and errand running are among some of the numerous gigs you can find online.

In addition to the exhibitors, the fair will offer workshops designed to help you understand these new opportunities and set you up for success.

Some of the companies / training services that have already confirmed their attendance include: Deliv, MEDA , Wonolo, Breeze, BAVC, Everlance, Sherpashare, Saucey, Peers, TaskRabbit, Honor, and Redtower Marketing.
