The digital age has brought about a major shift in the way people work. Thanks to the rise of the gig economy, more and more people are taking on temporary and flexible jobs that allow them to work on their own terms. From driving for ride-sharing services to picking up odd jobs on food delivery apps, there are endless opportunities for workers to find gigs that suit their skills and schedules.
