Everyday We're (Side) Hustlin': How the "Gig Economy" Shapes both Career Advising and the Advisors
Tuesday, October 29, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

You’ve heard of side-hustles, freelancing, and the “Gig Economy:” opportunities pursued or created to maintain skills, explore passions, or simply make ends meet. Initially a way for skilled professionals to cope with 2008’s Great Recession, now over a third of the US workforce is made up of side-hustlers, freelancers, and independent contractors who generate over $1 trillion in contributions to the U.S. economy. It is now imperative for career services to adapt in advising students pursuing freelance or independent work, which can prove interesting for some professionals that are side-hustlers themselves. How can we better understand and serve students headed towards a world of work that is proving to be more status quo than fleeting fad? If you have a side-hustle of your own, how do you keep the plates spinning—and can your hustle help you find passion that you aren’t getting from your professional role? In this session, we’ll share current research on where the “Gig Economy” is, where it’s going, and how we looked back on our own hustles to find strengths to better serve our students. And, of course, we’ll show you how you can get in on the hustlin’, too!
