Gigs: the new hope for twentysomethings


I read an interesting article today in the WSJ that talked about the growth in unemployment rate among today’s recent college grads. Nothing super-surprising here.

However, I was impressed to find that the President of the New York Fed, William Dudley, sees just how impactful gigs are to the future-of-work. “More twentysomethings today work “gig to gig” as freelancers or on short-term contracts”, he said.

I wonder if this is an evolution. My experience as a hiring manager, particularly with new grads, has been that ‘trying before you buy’ is best. Maybe others have seen the light?
