VIDEO SCRIPT: Decades of super-employment awaits us. Be prepared!

Uncategorized May 19, 2020
 

As a result of Covid-19 and the forces at play within the 4IR we are moving into decades of super employment. Covid-19 came as a blessing in disguise and forces us away from the false security of employment and a paycheck mentality!

Let me explain ….

The majority of new jobs will be structured as freelance projects rather than full-time jobs and it will change the nature of work! We refer to this as the emergence of the GIG Economy. The term GIG is a slang word, specifically out of the music industry, and refers to a job that lasts a specific period of time.
