With COVID-19 restrictions easing and the economy recovering, 2021 promises to be the biggest holiday season in almost two years. But all around the country, companies are struggling to find the workers they need. Even as businesses have re-opened, turnover has spiked, leaving millions of open jobs unfilled. The good news for you? Companies are willing to pay top dollar for high-quality workers right now.

In fact, wages are growing faster than they have in decades. Even better, Instawork shifts tend to offer higher-than-average pay. In cities like Atlanta, hourly workers using Instawork can make, on average, 105% higher than minimum wage. But pay isn’t the only perk of Instawork — Pros love the flexibility that comes with creating their own schedule and being their own boss.

“It might be three days this week, five days the next, four days the following… I'm able to kind of hopscotch the gigs so I can meet my [income] goal every single time,” said Bryin W., an Instawork Professional based in Los Angeles. “It makes somebody like me feel a lot more free.”


With a variety of roles and workplaces available, you can also build new skills.

“I've been able to utilize different skill sets, and learn to my advantage,” Bryin added.

And because our high-tech app takes your skills, experience, location, and more into account when matching you with jobs, you’re sure to find the right fit.
