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
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!
- 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.
Happy ‘Back To School’ Season!
