Gigwalk: A New Mobile App for Temp Work

Technology continues to make networking and getting jobs done easier.  The latest is a new mobile application for temp work called Gigwalk.

Gigwalk brings together companies looking to complete local tasks, with iPhone-carrying mobile workers.  The app launched in May.  It’s already signed up over 50,000 workers, and it’s only launched in eight cities so far.

The way it works is, workers registered with Gigwalk (called Gigwalkers) all over the United States are matched up with companies who need local tasks completed.  Those tasks range from taking a photo of newly installed signage to ensure its correct completion, to evaluating places of business for pricing, noise level, atmosphere and product placement.  The workers report their findings to the company that “hired” them, then get paid through Paypal.

Otherwise, these companies might expend way more resources trying to locate someone local, or flying an employee to the site to complete to task.  And workers would be without that extra cash in their pockets.

Have you tried out the app? If so, we’d love to hear your opinion.
