How did you hear about GigSmart?

I am so grateful for my girlfriend. She showed me the app, I downloaded it.

The first thing I loved about Get Gigs is how user friendly it is – I was able to sign up in minutes. I added my profile photo, background, and references and found my first job that same afternoon.

As nice as the app is, I must say the support staff, who are there to help you succeed, are even better! Truly, it’s people like Mike Fox – who call you, get a feel for what you’re about, and apply that knowledge to make a great fit for each employer and Gig worker.

What was your first Gig?

Handyman. I did light home construction work (bathroom fixture installation) and within few minutes of completing the Gig I had $170.00 in my Worker Wallet for completing a little over 3 hours of work.

What do you like about working Gigs?

Whether working for a car rental company servicing their fleet needs or handling residential projects ranging from planting flowers to installing ceiling fans to cleaning gutters, I have found that not only have the people I’ve worked for been kind and professional, but the pay is very competitive.

For me, I’m just having a good time and getting paid for it.

So far, what’s your favorite Gig?

Working as a paid actor for a short vampire film at a historic cemetery in Atlanta.

I’ve always have been told I should have been an actor, so I thought what the heck when I saw the job posting. The film will be submitted to various film festivals (just in time for Halloween) in the hopes of getting picked up as a series…watch out Buffy and your Vampire Slayers.

What’s next?

GigSmart’s Get Gigs app provides me with enough resources to stay as busy as I want, and it gives me the freedom to do what I want. It’s a great way to expand and challenge yourself. I could not have found a better vehicle to get Gigs with, and look forward to the many new adventures to come.
