Everyone knows being unemployed typically feels like a slump. However, now that we’re smack dab in the middle of the gig economy, there are plenty of ways to make some moolah without having a typical 9 to 5. One great option is ridesharing! Uber has disrupted the transportation scene hard but they’ve also opened up a whole new job market for earning money.
What’s great about becoming an Uber partner?
Signing up to become a driver-partner is super easy. Pretty much anyone
with a car qualifies but here are the deets:
– 21 years old or older
– Must have a four door car
– Must have a registered vehicle and insurance
– Must have a valid driver’s license
– Must have a smartphone
Who among your friends would not qualify to drive with Uber?
Another thing I love about partnering with Uber is the flexibility. Looking for a job can be time consuming between scheduling interviews, phone screens, and scouring the web for something that isn’t undercutting my value, but sometimes I can sign onto the Uber app and take two to three trips between my plans! If I need to get from company 1 to company 2 anyway, why not make some cash along the way by driving with the Uber app?
It’s also super quick signing on to pick up riders. I just turn on the app and automatically get ride requests. It’s up to me whether to take ride requests or not, and once I need to get on with my day or life, I just sign off and close the app.
Another thing I love about driving with Uber is how often I get paid. It makes keeping track of my personal finances and expenses a lot easier knowing the money I earned this week gets paid this week. I might need to spend extra money for commuting between interviews or grabbing a new pair of formal shoes and knowing it’s under my control to drive more is a great feeling. Need more money soon? Turn on the app and drive! Want to take the first step in turning your unemployment stress on its head?
