The “gig economy” is a concept that has gained widespread recognition and is no longer a mere buzzword. This is due to freelancing and gigging rapidly gaining popularity especially among youth with marketable skills.

According to Peter Miscovich, Managing Director of JLL Consulting, New York, by 2020, giggers will comprise half the workforce and as much as 80% by 2030.

Posted by Raefah Ab Rahman on Feb 14, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Just mention the word ‘work’ to a young person and this is bound to be their reaction:

Ask any of the Gen Y, or Millennial workers, and they’d definitely tell you that work is a chore. The Independent reports that 43% of Millennials plan to leave their current job within two years or less, and only a quarter surveyed plan to stay at their current job for more than five years! Unlike previous generations, the Gen-Y’s don’t settle for less. Lizzo tells us, we need something more exciting, or if we’re tired of the work drama, seek your nirvana. An apt description as many young working adults find themselves job hopping until they find something that they’re truly happy with.

Posted by Raefah Ab Rahman on Jan 24, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Have you done a personality quiz before? It’s all the rage now. Whether it’s the MBTI test, DISC or Enneagram, we’re all curious to know who we really are.

Surviving On Minimum Wage - is it possible?

Posted by Raefah Ab Rahman on Jan 10, 2020 11:00:00 AM

In this day and age, we are no longer able to survive on the same amount of money that our parents lived with back in the day.

However, our question remains- despite the increase, are we able to sustain ourselves?
