Meet Tim, Former Accountant Turned Specialist

Let me introduce you to Tim, a former accountant and small business owner turned Shiftgig Specialist. After working for years in accounting and selling his small business, Tim turned to Shiftgig to explore his passion for the service industry.

Why the change in careers? Tim acknowledged that “Coming from an accounting background, where the day to day is mundane, I got excited about the work opportunities at Shiftgig.” After a friend introduced him to Shiftgig, he was interviewed and hired. Once he had worked a few shifts, he realized that he had a real knack and energy for the industry. This sparked Tim’s interest and since then he has been picking up shifts whenever he can, particularly shifts that repeat or shifts he can work his friends.

One of the main reasons Tim loves working for Shiftgig is that he has the ability to work events with people he loves. “We enjoy going to the different venues together, places that we normally would not have gone to or be able to attend,” Tim stated. “Though we are older than most of the people at Shiftgig, we love exploring these cool venues. It has opened up a lot of different doors for venues that we wouldn’t have been to.”  Tim and friends enjoy working all sorts of events including event dinners and baseball games. He is particularly looking forward to picking up more exciting and similar sports shifts around the football season.

If Tim and his friends aren’t picking up shifts on the weekends, he likes to spend his time exploring the outdoors. His favorite things to do outside are boating on a local lake, hunting and fishing.
