While visitor numbers took a dive during the pandemic, tourists are expected to return in droves this summer - which means a dramatic increase in customers for local businesses. How will businesses successfully navigate the spike in demand and how can locals take advantage of the increase in work opportunities? 

The answer is leveraging flexible work platforms like Instawork to connect local businesses in need of reliable staffing with local workers looking to create a work schedule that best suits their needs and financial goals.

Work in a way that’s best for you

In the Los Angeles area, 150,000 people have already downloaded the Instawork app, which hourly workers can use to create a flexible work schedule on their terms. By creating an Instawork profile, users gain access to a large pool of available shifts in their area, with shift details including: hourly rate, total earning per shift, necessary attire, and other important information.

Users can also see how other Pros have rated what it’s like to work for local businesses, so you know what to expect upon arrival to the shift.

Choose how you want to work

There are a variety of positions across multiple industries on the app. If you don’t know where to start and want to try one of the most popular roles, you may want to pick up a custodial or warehouse shift. If you like retail, consider picking up a shift as a cashier. If you’re into food and beverage, there are plenty of serving, bartending, and bussing shifts available as well. Stick to one or try them all to gain new skills, it’s entirely up to you.

Determine how much you want to make

Instawork Pros also have the opportunity to make great money this summer. In Los Angeles, the average hourly rate is $21 per hour on the platform. There is also the ability to get paid the same day through Instapay. Instawork Pros often report the money hitting their account before they get to their car at the end of the day.

In the Instawork app, you can see total shift earnings before you book the shift, so you know exactly how much you'll take home. This is helpful in planning how many shifts you need to complete to hit your income goals.
