In an increasingly unstable job market with a growing focus on contract, part-time and volatile work opportunities, side hustles have become an important part of many young workers' livelihoods, and it is this particular demographic that the new Hyr job app aims to target.
Launched in Canada, the Hyr job app is specifically designed to help people find second jobs or extra shifts to augment their income and enable them to make some extra cash on the side. The app also allows workers and employers to rate each other in order to improve the app experience for everyone.
The current iteration of the app is largely targeted towards the hospitality and retail segments, which are well-suited towards quickly incorporating new hires without expansive training. But as younger workers increasingly embrace juggling multiple jobs, there's no doubt that the Hyr job app can expand into other realms.
