The number of gig economy professionals being hired for short project or as contract workers has risen from 20 per cent to 25 per cent in the contingent workforce in the past two years. It has given rise to the Gig or Flex Economy.

Now the idea of educating oneself is not merely to obtain a degree or a certificate that just adds weight to the resume, but to acquire a set of industry skills necessary to be able to attain a job.
