Work 3.0: How The Employment Model Needs to Change

According to Gary Swart, the CEO of oDesk, the fast-growing online workplace where eContractors are currently earning more than $300 million a year, the traditional employment model has dramatically shifted and evolved. The “regular” job market may never make the comeback that so many job seekers hope to see, and this makes people anxious.

Boundless Opportunities:

The new employment model is here: Work 3.0. In it, work is on demand, virtual and remote — and it is just getting started.

In the Work 3.0 model, people are no longer limited to the jobs available within commuting distance. Graphic designers in rural Tennessee have the same access to jobs as graphic designers in New York or London. This elimination of geographic boundaries can refresh perspectives and development in new and interesting ways. It also means that individuals have the freedom to choose which projects interest them most, as well as when, where, and how often to work.

The Future of Work 3.0

Online work continues to grow by 70 percent year over year, and the technology that supports it continues to improve. In 2012, it is predicted that more than 6 million online jobs will be posted, representing more than $1 billion of work performed via the Web.
