Your Back-to-School Check List

It’s that time again—the school year is about to begin! Young people all over the country are divided into two camps: those thrilled to get back into the thick of learning, who eagerly anticipate their reunion with school friends; and those who wish that summer would last forever.

At TaskRabbit, we’re firmly in the first group. Why? Because back-to-school season means loads of back-to-school tasks up for grabs!


Think about it: All of those college students moving into new dorm rooms or apartments within the next month means plenty of task opportunities in the following categories:

  • Help Moving
  • Furniture Assembly
  • IKEA Assembly
  • Cleaning

Here are a few tips to make sure you snatch up these back to school tasks while they last:

  • Add categories. If you do not currently have Help Moving, Furniture Assembly, IKEA Assembly, or Cleaning on your profile, consider adding them. We expect a great deal of task invitations at the end of this month from these categories in particular! dorm_room.png
  • Update your Work Area map. If you’re in a city with a university nearby, consider updating your Work Area map to include it.
  • Update your Availability. Make sure to open up schedule Availability for the next two weeks to take advantage of these tasks. If any last-minute changes come up, make sure to update your Availability in the app so you get tasks only when you’re able to task.

  2. I’am a returning tasker, and need assistance getting on to the virtual orientation test. Everything else is good to go, profile, availability, skills, and rate. I will try to go to customer support for live chat hopefully they can help me with this issue.

    I am a returning Tasker trying to get to the Available Now Task. Is it still available?

    • Kyra TaskRabbit

      Hi Audrey, ‘Available Now Task’ is no longer a feature on our platform. We do have Same Day tasking available in certain cities though, which might help you secure extra tasks in an on-demand basis.
