In a freelancing context, the term “gig” typically refers to a short-term, one-time project or assignment that a freelancer completes for a client. Gigs are often smaller in scope than full-time projects or long-term contracts, and may be completed remotely or in-person.
Examples of freelance gigs include writing a single blog post, designing a logo, or providing a one-hour consulting session. Gigs can be found on freelance marketplaces, social media, or through referrals from existing clients.
The term “gig” is commonly used in the freelance industry and has been popularized by the rise of the gig economy, which is characterized by short-term contracts and freelance work. Freelancers may use the term “gig” to refer to any type of project or assignment, regardless of its length or complexity.
