With the current political polarisation of the world, we find herds of immigrants entering multiple countries in search of safety, security and with a dream to build a better and brighter future for themselves and their next generations. But the harsh reality
hits soon, and they realise it takes time for them to find job that suits them. They end up doing a lot of odd jobs that get them a basic cash flow to sustain for a while till they find that dream job coming their way.
This transient period is full of anxiety, agony and frustration and sometimes despair. We know gig economy is not new. The buzz word too has been around for a few years now, but working as a part time worker is an age old way to remain afloat in such situations.
This process is sometimes the de-facto mode for students to earn some cash that will take care of their living expenses apart from tuition fee.
But more and more people are exploring the option of doing something with their web presence and doing jobs that they get paid for by registering to sites online that pay you for your online work and at the convenience of their own time. This is a great
starting point for people who were displaced due to uncertain situations and immigrants can be a huge beneficiary for this.
I’ve seen quite a few platforms that introduces people who are interested in such odd jobs and struggle to find a platform that may help them find any worthwhile work, so I am trying to list some of the resources that people can look into and also some potential
platforms that hold promise for future.
Start-Ups or Early platforms that caught my eye and are worth checking and registering for keeping an eye in future.
Do you know any worthy sites or Apps that are global?
