You have what it takes to start a side gig — and we’re here to help

You might be wondering, “what’s a side gig?” It’s what happens when you combine your hobbies or unique ideas with opportunities to gain experience and earn some money. And the best part about side gigs is that they’re flexible in ways that traditional part-time or full-time work may not be.

You have what it takes to start a side gig. This week, participate in Instagram live sessions, webinars and other activities to learn how to successfully start and operate one yourself.

Why start a side gig?

  • Get experience starting a business.
  • Pay for tuition.
  • Invest your income.
  • Follow your passion.
  • Balance professional development and school.
  • Develop transferable, career-ready skills.
  • And more! Participate in all the activities this week to explore the world of side gigs.
