The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics has done some research that shows how much the gig economy has grown in recent years. Between 2003 and 2013, non-employer gigs in arts, entertainment, and recreation grew by nearly 400,000 opportunities. That means a lot of people get to do the work they love without resigning themselves to specific employers. This is great news for anyone who dreams of working as a graphic designer, writer, filmmaker, or musician.
Many emerging opportunities come from companies that want to sell their products and services online. Managers know that they need strong content that improves their search rankings, makes their companies look like experts, and converts casual browsers into paying customers.
