During the past couple of weeks Crowdworking was a popular topic in the media. One of Germany‘s largest TV stations ARD dedicated its this year‘s theme week to the future of work (Link), in coorparation with other german TV stations (HR, SR and Radio Bremen). Of course Crowdworking is also a segment of „the future of work“ and appJobber was asked, how the future of microjobbing could possibly look like.
In an very interesting interview with HR, a german TV station which broadcasts regional news, the chances and risks of Crowdworking were discussed. It has long been recognized that Crowdworking is turning into an expanding and modern phenomenon and that it doesn‘t just open new chances for jobbers, but also for companies. In Germany, as well as in the USA, platforms like appJobber are already firmly established. The community of microjobbers is spread across the country and who is interested in earning additional money in an very flexible way, knows where to find microjobs. The growth of appJobber is based on the commitment of these crowdworkers and we are excited to see the evolution of this new type of work.
