People have always looked for a side hustle or temporary work to make money. But the modern-day gig economy has been supercharged by technology.
With the tap of a finger or click of a mouse, digital platforms make it simple to explore on-demand work across a growing range of industries, skills and wage levels.
There are online sites for IT workers, engineers, dental hygienists and CPAs as well as for those in the wedding industry, those looking to give rides, share their homes, run errands, fix broken appliances or take care of your elderly parents.
