Based on talking with multiple-job holders for about a decade now, we think there is a continuum of "typical," with the bookends being moonlighters who work multiple jobs to make ends meet and plural careerists who work multiple jobs out of a genuine desire to pursue more than one occupation, like someone who is a lawyer and yoga instructor.,Caza: This is a hard question to answer because, in the best of times, it is difficult to get concrete data on the prevalence of multiple-job holding, since people often hold a second job for only part of the year, have marginal earnings when in the startup phase of a new job, or may not report the income from what they may consider to be secondary jobs.,So my best guess is that those who are multiple-job holding out of necessity found that their secondary sources of income dried up, whereas those who were dabbling in multiple-job holding because they had an intrinsic passion toward exploring multiple jobs—the plural careerists—found they had the time and motivation to invest more in their secondary jobs during this time.,While I think remote work will become more normalized, which is one way multiple-job holders may interact with their clients, I am not sure if holding multiple jobs ever will be considered normal, as the one-job narrative is so baked into our society's narrative.,There are just so many opportunities that the Internet provides for multiple streams of income, it is hard to see how the number of individuals engaged in multiple-job holding could do anything other than rise.
