If you’ve just moved to Bozeman, welcome to one of the prettiest and friendliest mountain towns in America. It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with a short drive to some of the best skiing, fly fishing, hiking and ice climbing destinations in the U.S. The city has a youthful vibe filled with lots of eateries, coffee and tea shops, storefronts, and bars as well as a thriving art, theater and music culture. It seems that there’s always things to do in Bozeman.
But moving to a new city can be equal parts exciting and terrifying, especially if you’re going it alone. If you find yourself feeling a little homesick, consider picking up flexible work to smooth your transition, pay for moving expenses, and make new friends. There’s no better way to familiarize yourself with Bozeman and get a lay of the land than through contingent gig work.
Whether you’ve relocated for a job or moved to Bozeman and then plan to find a job, flexible gig work offers you lots of opportunities. Many people with full time jobs take on extra flex work to save for vacations, pay down debt, and earn extra cash for holiday shopping. But as a Bozeman newbie, flex work can also give you keen insight into the flavor and map of the town.
Here are 3 tips on how to learn the lay of the land in Bozeman through contingent work:
- Try saying “yes” to as many gigs as possible and learn to navigate the different neighborhoods and streets as you get to your new gig. If you’re nervous, try keeping your radius small at first (maybe even close to home), and expand from there. Soon you’ll find you’re not getting lost any more when you walk out the door.
- Consider being a dog walker. You can walk the dogs when and where you want and get paid to learn how to navigate different parts of Bozeman as you stay fit. And there’s nothing more uplifting than being around our furry friends. They can make you smile on the worst days.
- Want to get paid for shopping? Choose only the personal shopping gigs you want. They can be anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours based on how much you want to make. You’ll soon have your own stockpile of favorite stores. And who knows? You might like a shop so much you end up working there fulltime.
As you learn to stand on your own and bravely face life’s challenges, you’re also building the life you’ve dreamed for yourself; and that’s an empowering sensation.
