Dominique and Dre, a brother-sister duo from Detroit, both became Taskers in March of 2020. Together they have embraced this flexible way of working—completing more than 1,000 tasks on the Hyer app.
Read on to see what they had to say about their experience as Taskers.
I began as a Tasker with Hyer in March of 2020, just before the beginning of the pandemic. I transitioned from a similar gig-based company because Hyer offered more earning opportunities with significantly more clients to service. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier with my decision to join as a Hyer Tasker.
The thing I enjoy most about being a Tasker is the ability to teach others financial independence. I have recommended a significant amount of Taskers to the platform who all disliked the conventional 9-5 rat race. Now that they’ve taken the reigns into their own hands, they’ve become the master of their own financial destiny. They’re able to choose the frequency in which they want to work and which hours accommodate their busy lifestyle.
Hyer has impacted my life tremendously over these last two years. It’s afforded me the freedom to explore the world on my own terms. This year alone I’ve traveled to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Iceland and Florida and we’re but six months into this year. Had I been working a traditional corporate job, traveling this extensively would’ve been nearly impossible. However, when you’re a Tasker for Hyer, you’re able to structure work around your life, not the other way around.
The best advice I could offer to my fellow Tasker is to exude professionalism at all times. It’s imperative that you leave a lasting impression by going above and beyond the call of duty to serve your clients; for the likelihood of you being hired for a future task will increase greatly by doing so. By taking small measures such as showing up to tasks on time, dressing in the appropriate clothing and being polite to those whom you’re servicing can be the defining factor in you being hired for a task.
What I enjoy about being a Tasker is that each of my work days are different. I’m able to choose the hours I work and the location which makes my life that much easier. Because of the flexible work hours, I was able to earn my Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Animation. I feel that I couldn’t have done so working a regular job.
A tip I would share with a fellow Tasker is that although some tasks may seem difficult at first, if you are diligent and persistent the work becomes easier and worthwhile in the end.
