Australian find-a person-to-do-anything-service Airtasker says that IT-related tasks are amongst the most popular requests from its workforce. Would you be happy to enhance your career or supplement your income by helping strangers set up their web server?
In an announcement of a new strategic alliance with job search site CareerOne, Airtasker revealed that "website & blog assistance" and "IT support" are two of its most active requests. A typical task pays between $70 and $90 and can be completed in less than a day, the company says.
We know from other data that a basic IT support role as a contractor pays just under $40 an hour. As such, those tasks only make sense economically if you can complete them quickly. That said, some money is better than no money, and building up an Airtasker profile might be one way to promote yourself for a full-time job.
