SPOTLIGHT THREE
DO OUR GRADUATES HAVE TWO JOBS TO PAY FOR COST OF LIVING ?
We uncovered that 13 % of our older graduates who are employed fulltime also have a second job — yet the nature of these second jobs is not predominantly an after-hours hustle to help pay the bills , such as valet attendant , ride-share driver , or waiter . On the contrary , most of these “ two jobers ” have developed a second activity that enhances their career or even presents an entrepreneurial opportunity , such as a Director of Diversity and Inclusion who started a consulting practice or a Graphic Designer also working as an illustrator . We interviewed Tevah to learn more about this “ Millennial Hustle ” 4
“ From a young age , I made it my mission to support artists , businesses , and nonprofits making a difference and help grow their audiences using marketing , media , and culture . The pursuit of this mission has led me down a colorful career path , from songwriting and video creation to entrepreneurship and public speaking , each giving me unique perspectives and skills I use today . Currently , I run a creative firm called Nspired Media that advertises those making an impact in the world . I also sit on the global business marketing team of a large tech company where free marketing e-courses I create are read by millions of small businesses across the globe .”
