The Gig Economy

“It is a lot of jumping around, but they love it. Because they are creating their own career out of it.”

Catherine Lang-Cline talks to host Mary McCarthy about The Gig Economy, and how it’s changing the workplace. A gig is a job of a short duration, or a single project. And it’s becoming increasingly popular with Millennials and Generation Xers.

Catherine Lang-Cline is the President and Co-founder of Portfolio Creative, a microbusiness that connects clients to marketing, design, advertising, retail, and digital roles in other companies.

“For people who are deciding to dive into The Gig Economy… you can be successful high-end or low-end, if you just have the drive to do it. You have to be really comfortable with just always getting to that next job, next job, next job. Some people are not. Some people find a lot of comfort having a secure job.”
