Competing With The Gig Economy

Nov 2017

As this article shows, freelancers are now accounting for nearly 36 percent of the US workforce in arguably one of the most competitive job markets of all time.  In fact, hiring managers tell us that they now often find themselves reviewing resumes that build on freelance gigs instead of traditional trajectory.

Our advice:  Encourage your hiring teams to be open to the best fit regardless of whether a career history presents as what was once traditional.  Pay attention to how the candidate’s priorities and goals have evolved over the course of time, and how their current goals can align with your organizational needs and goals.
