The New Tax Reform might benefit YOU as a Veryable Operator

After President Trump’s new tax reform was implemented this past February 2018, being an independent contractor might be the best option for you this year.

For the longest time, W-2 employees paid lower taxes compared to independent contractors and also received more benefits, but not anymore! The tax new law offers a more direct benefit for independent workers.

You might be wondering how does the new tax reform benefit independent contractors? Well, the new tax law lets “independent” workers deduct 20% of their income before paying the new, lower individual tax rates signed into law by President Trump.  As an independent contractor, this will significantly reduce your federal taxable income. The pass-through deduction can easily save you thousands of dollars overall in taxes.

The new tax reform is likely to encourage more people to make the switch from employee to independent contractor.  Switching from employee to independent contractor is being considered a top strategy to maximize your future tax deductions. In fact, Intuit, the maker of Turbo Tax, predicts the gig economy will almost double to 7.7 million workers in 2020.

On previous blog posts, we’ve talked about the many benefits of working as a Veryable operator and being an independent contractor.  Now, with the new tax reform, the benefits just keep adding up. If you are already a Veryable operator, the new tax form will make you love your work even more than you already do; however, if you still aren’t, now is the time to make the switch to an independent contractor and start to enjoy all the benefits.

If you are tired of working for someone else and you’re ready to make the switch once and for all, become a Veryable operator today!  You can get started today by downloading the mobile App from our website: www.veryableops.com.  You can also download directly from the Apple store or Google Play, or complete our Web Form if you’re away from your phone.  For any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Veryable recruiting team at (214) 310-0424.

Smartphones are changing the way we work

Let’s face it, today mobile devices are integrated into nearly every aspect of our daily lives. Just think back to the last time you didn’t have a smartphone, or other mobile device with you? Can’t remember? And how often have you used your phone for work? The answer is probably more often than you think!

We’ve gathered some statistics to show how mobile is changing the way we work in today’s economy.

1.  On average, about 81% of adults in the United States have smartphones, and those phones are used on average about one hour and 39 minutes per day to consume media.

2.  Cellphone users touch their phones approximately 2,617 times in a day.

3.  In an average day, 40% of people use only their smartphone to perform an online search because it meets their immediate needs.

4.  Millennials beat all other age groups for smartphone ownership (77%), as well as time spent on them (over two hours per day).

5.  Smartphones are used daily by 87% of millennials.

6.  Generation X also has a big daily smartphone usage — 60% to be exact.

7.  Almost a fifth of time spent consuming digital media is for social networking, and 61% of these occurrences happen through a smartphone app.

8.  75% percent of U.S. users download at least one app daily.

9.  28% of Americans use a smartphone in their job search, and half of them filled out a job application from their phone.

Given these statistics, mobile is clearly here to stay, and your mobile device is no longer just for phone calls, but a tool for making our everyday lives easier. Think about how often you catch a ride, look up directions, or check your bank account on a mobile device. Having these resources in the palm of your hand can be an instant time saver. The convenience and accessibility that mobile phones offer is what we are all embracing.

That’s why Veryable has created the easiest way for you to look for work and get paid all through the convenience of an app. With our Veryable App, we are connecting millions of workers with millions of work opportunities and our operators absolutely love the concept!

Happy Texas Independence Day!

For the proudest of Texans, March 2 is the most important day of the year. On this day we celebrate Texas Independence Day! Veryable is so proud to be able to provide so many work opportunities to our Texan operators and connect with so many businesses in the great state of Texas. We thought we would share a little bit of the history of how Texas became forever independent 182 years ago.

The Texas Declaration of Independence was signed at Washington-on-the-Brazos, now commonly referred to as the “birthplace of Texas.” Similar to the United States Declaration of Independence, this document focused on the rights of citizens to “life” and “liberty” but with an emphasis on the “property of the citizen.”

The Texas Declaration of Independence was issued during a revolution against the Mexican government that began in October 1835 following a series of government edicts including dissolution of state legislatures, disarmament of state militias, and abolition of the Constitution of 1824.

By December 1835, Texans (Anglo-American settlers) and Tejanos (Texans of mixed Mexican and Indian descent) captured the town of San Antonio. Two months later, on February 23, 1836, Mexican troops under General Antonio López de Santa Anna arrived in San Antonio to retake the city. Although Sam Houston ordered Texans to abandon San Antonio, a group of rebels decided to defend the town and make their stand at an abandoned Spanish mission, the Alamo.

For twelve days, Mexican forces laid siege to the Alamo. On March 6, four days after Texas declared independence, Mexican troops scaled the mission’s walls; 183 defenders were killed, including several Mexicans who had fought for Texas independence, and their oil-soaked bodies were set on fire outside the Alamo. The Republic of Texas won its independence on April 21, 1836, with a final battle along the San Jacinto River.

Five Reasons to Love Manufacturing

There are so many reasons to love manufacturing. We thought it would be a good idea to share some of our favorite things we love about this industry:

1. Constantly Changing

A lot of industries don’t shift their trajectories very often; but not manufacturing. There’s always something new, something exciting, and something awesome in the works. In fact, today the implementation of advanced technologies in manufacturing has brought change that would have been unimaginable just a decade ago resulting in increased speed, customization, precision, and efficiency. This just means we should be thankful for manufacturing making our lives easier each day.

2. Provides Work

The manufacturing industry accounts for nearly 9 percent of the American workforce. That means a lot of lives depend on the industry. It’s great news, then, that the unemployment rate within the industry is at a historic low point, and that manufacturers continue to look for workers throughout the country. That’s why at Veryable, we decided to make it easier for you and provide you with an App where you can find lots of work opportunities available for you to choose and start working as soon as possible! Once you sign up with Veryable, we make sure to always have work available for you.

3. The Economy Depends On It

The manufacturing industry doesn’t just support the people who work in the industry, but it is also the backbone of the American and international economies. According to statistics, Manufacturers contributed more than $2.2 trillion to the U.S. economy in 2016, and for every dollar spent within the industry, another $1.81 is added to the economy. Manufacturing has such a great impact on the economy with something called the “multiplier effect.” That is, the wages from manufacturing workers are re-spent in other parts of the economy this is because many industries (especially service industries) depend on goods produced through manufacturing.

4. Provides Work Satisfaction

Work satisfaction is the sense of fulfillment and pride people feel when they enjoy their work and perform it well. One of the challenges that a lot of industries face is keeping people motivated and satisfied doing their work; but this is certainly not the case with manufacturing. A study on job satisfaction in the manufacturing industry was looked at the job satisfaction level of the workers in the organization and various factors involved in it. The results of the study showed that the majority of the workers in the manufacturing industry felt work satisfaction when given the appropriate work conditions and safe environment. From our personal experience with our Operators, we can definitely confirm their work satisfaction when they’ve found work with Veryable. We’ve heard from many of our Operators that one of the many reasons they choose Veryable is because they have the ability to work doing what they love!

5. It’s For Everyone

The manufacturing industry has got to be one of the most inclusive sectors of the economy. Nearly 30 percent of the workforce is made up of women, and that number is rising. Today, manufacturing businesses don’t really have a preference in what they look for, and the majority focus on looking for ways to attract hard working people whether it’s women, young professionals, veterans, older generations, or pretty much any one with the required skills who is willing to hop into the industry. That’s why at Veryable, we don’t even require experience in the field. We have work opportunities for all levels of experience and for ANYONE who has the motivation and will to start making money with us!

If you’re convinced by the many reasons why you should be working in the manufacturing industry, then sign up with Veryable today. Download the mobile App from our website: www.veryableops.com.  You can also download directly from the Apple store or Google Play, or complete our Web Form if you’re away from your phone.  For any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Veryable recruiting team at (214) 310-0424.

Veryable: a better alternative

One of the most common questions we get asked: “is Veryable a staffing agency?” So glad you asked! The short answer is NO. Let me tell you what sets Veryable apart from a staffing agency: our technology, our flexibility, better pay, and independent contractors.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Veryable is the first on-demand labor service smartphone app specifically designed for manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

Our app allows you to connect with companies who are looking for skilled workers like you in a faster way.

Unlike many staffing agencies, our technology the process of finding work and beginning to work can be done right away, there’s no need to wait days or weeks to get started.

FLEXIBILITY

Veryable’s focus is to give you the freedom of choice.  This means when you work with Veryable, you become an independent worker…allowing you to take charge of your career. In contrast to a staffing agency who places you at a specific job, we are not going to tell you when or where to work…YOU make the decision. With Veryable YOU are in charge of choosing where you want to work that’s why we provide you with a variety of work opportunities from different businesses which allows you to have the freedom of choice (You will never get bored doing the “same ole work”!).

BETTER PAY

One of our benefits is quick pay.  Working with Veryable means your payments are processed each day you complete your work and your money will hit your bank account within two-business days. Another benefit is that YOU keep all your money.  As you probably know a lot of staffing agencies take a percentage of your salary. With Veryable, you won’t EVER have this problem, because we don’t take any of your money.  You do the work, and it ALL goes straight to YOUR bank account.

Bottom line, Veryable is the solution to the evolution of the workforce for businesses and allows workers to capture the skills needed to get work done in today’s rapidly transforming marketplace.

Millennials are crazy about on-demand labor

Today more than 30% of American workers are millennials With Millennials practically owning the labor force these days, businesses are constantly looking for new ways to attract and retain these rising professionals. With the growing gig economy and on-demand labor, millennials are becoming drawn to jump into the workforce. On-demand jobs are appealing to millennials because they offer exactly what they are looking for: flexibility, technology, and no college degree requirement.

Flexibility

The number one factor that attracts millennials to the gig economy is flexibility. Millennials crave flexibility, and it’s shown to be one of the most important factors they evaluate when looking for work. While some businesses still worry about allowing too much flexibility in the workforce, according to a Bentley University study, 77% of millennials believe their level of productivity increases when they have flexible schedules.  Today, millennials have no interest in the traditional 9-to-5 schedule. They would rather set their own hours and be able to work at their own schedule while still getting the job done. Here at Veryable, we understand the importance of having a flexible schedule and that’s why we make this one of our defining characteristics. One of the things that attracts our operators the most is that they know they have the ability to set their own schedule and work wherever they want to work, and however many hours they want to work. Work-life balance is a priority for many Veryable operators, and that’s why they choose to work with Veryable.

Technology

Millennials thrive on technology. More than 96% of millennials say they are always or almost always online. When they need more information, 70% of them turn to a search engine online. Millennials crave convenience and ease of use. According to Nielsen, almost all millennials today have access to a mobile phone, and it is their preferred method of accessing the internet. This makes the Veryable App very appealing to millennials. When we tell them about how our mobile App works, they absolutely love the idea. The Veryable App allows them to bypass the traditional job search process…allowing them to find work in just a matter of days instead of weeks or months.  All they have to do is download the Veryable App and complete their profile.  There are no written applications, pre-screening calls, interviews, etc.  Everything is done through the Veryable App, even getting paid. Can it get any easier than this?

No College, No Problem

Attending college is not cheap by any means and given the amount of loan debt that students are left with, more millennials are having second thoughts about going to college and many believe college isn’t giving them the right solution to their problems. That’s why millennials are all about finding work opportunities where they are not required to have a college degree. On-demand labor is providing this opportunity for them. Although we are not saying college isn’t highly beneficial, our platform takes into consideration other factors when it comes to becoming one of our operators, such as skills. The Veryable App provides work opportunities for all skill levels, and allows operators to choose from beginner, experienced or advanced when setting up your Veryable profile.  If you are responsible and have a good work-ethic, Veryable has work opportunities for you!  

You can check our previous blog post Why on-demand work is right for you if you’d like more reasons to convince yourself that on-demand labor is the solution to your problems. If you believe on-demand labor is attractive to you and it’s something you’d be interested, then join the Veryable platform and become an operator today! Start to enjoy these benefits by downloading the mobile App from our website: www.veryableops.com.  You can also download directly from the Apple store or Google Play, or complete our Web Form if you’re away from your phone.  For any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Veryable recruiting team at (214) 310-0424.

Advantages of Manufacturing

Have you ever wondered where your phone or the computer from which you’re reading this post ever come from? The answer: it’s all thanks to manufacturing. Manufacturing provides the foundation for many kinds of innovations and is very much intertwined with the research and development that often result in innovations that improve our standard of living. Although some people might say that manufacturing jobs are dead, the truth is that the manufacturing industry is actually growing. Last year’s U.S. manufacturing GDP was $2.2T, the highest ever recorded, and since 2010, over 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been added.  Other statistics show:

-For every job held in manufacturing, 2.91 jobs are created in another sector

-Every dollar spent on manufacturing equates to $1.37 contributed to the economy overall

-One in every six jobs in the U.S. is a manufacturing position

There is no doubt that the manufacturing industry helps support the global and national economies, as well as individuals and families by creating many jobs for Americans and supporting many other jobs in the economy.

What are the benefits?

So besides providing people with work opportunities, and helping boost the nation’s economy, something that really attracts workers to get into manufacturing is simply just the type of work.

Manufacturing workers claim they “like seeing things come together,” and that it’s rewarding to participate in the manufacturing process from start to finish. Being able to be part of the process creating something and seeing the final product produces a rewarding feeling for workers. Some workers seek jobs with a specific manufacturer because they like the product:they see it as an opportunity to build stuff they are passionate about. These workers feel a sense of pride by being able to not only to use their own hands but also their brain to produce something that others will use and appreciate. Many like knowing there’s a chance to walk into a store some day and see the actual product they helped to create with their own hands and knowing that this product can actually make a difference for someone.

At Veryable we understand all the benefits that attract our operators and that’s why we always want to offer them more opportunities to get involved in manufacturing. If you want to get involved in the manufacturing industry, and you believe you would be a good fit, join our Veryable team and become an operator today by downloading the mobile App from our website: www.veryableops.com.  You can also download directly from the Apple store or Google Play or complete our Web Form if you’re away from your phone.  For any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Veryable recruiting team at (214) 310-0424.

How are people succeeding with Veryable?

The rise of on-demand work is booming and growing by the day. Companies love it and are enjoying its benefit. On demand labor reduces many costs for companies, and saves their time by providing them with the ability to connect with skilled workers in a faster way.

Not only are companies benefiting from on-demand labor, but workers are too. People are tired of having to spend numerous hours of their day looking for a job just to end up in one that requires them to work long hours with little flexibility, perform repetitive tasks, and get little to no recognition for the quality of their work. This is why Veryable has successfully created a win-win solution for both businesses and operators.

Why do Operators choose Veryable?

What is it that attracts Veryable operators the most? Think about it this way: Veryable is providing you with the ability to choose where you want to work, how many hours you want to work, and when you want to work. This allows you to have total flexibility to create your own schedule and maintain your work/life balance.

We’ve all been there… having to work long hours for a job that you don’t even enjoy and feeling attached to the same company for years. With Veryable, operators don’t have to deal with situations like this. You don’t want to work for the same company every day and do the same type of work? No problem. You have the ability to bid on different ops with different companies each day! As a Veryable Operator you are not constrained to any specific company or type of work.

A lot of companies will ask for experience because most people tend to associate more experience with being best suited for the job. At Veryable, we understand this isn’t always the case. That’s why all of our operators have a chance to bid on any Op and there are work opportunities for everyone, no matter what level of experience you have! With Veryable you can develop these skills on-the-job and continue to gain experience and build your skill sets.

Goodbye to Old-School Ways

Nowadays most people carry smartphones in their pockets, so having a mobile App like Veryable allows you to search for work opportunities at any time by simply scrolling through your phone. This makes searching for work so much easier and less tedious (because we know how that can be). Veryable hands you the opportunities, and it’s up to you to choose the one that meets your needs and wants.

No one likes to be desperately waiting for pay day either, so that’s why Veryable pays you immediately after your work is complete. Our operators feel gratified knowing they will receive their payment right after doing their job. Veryable operators start earning money in four simple steps: 1) they Bid on the op, 2) get accepted for the Op, 3) show up to the company and do the work, and 4) get paid the same day. Our operators are making the most out of the benefits that Veryable provides them and they love the concept! Many claim it’s “too good to be true.”

If you want to become a Veryable Operator and start enjoying these benefits, you can get started today by downloading the mobile App from our website: www.veryableops.com.  You can also download directly from the Apple store or Google Play or complete our Web Form if you’re away from your phone.  For any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Veryable recruiting team at (214) 310-0424.

The Value of a Resume

In today’s competitive job market you need to take advantage of any possible chance you have to stand out and that’s when the value of your resume comes into play. Your resume is your opportunity to show companies what differentiates you from the rest of applicants that are in the exact same position as you are. It can help you answer the number one question that all companies want to know: “why you?’

Statistics show that the average company only spends a few seconds looking at a resume, so it is imperative that it makes an impact. You want to make sure your resume contains the right information that best represents you in order to get a company’s attention.   That’s why Veryable has introduced a built-in resume to track your performance and skills!

First Impressions

If you think about it this way, your resume is basically the first impression you give about yourself, and research has affirmed the importance of first impressions. Researchers have found that people make judgments about such things as trustworthiness, competence, and likability within a fraction of a second after first impressions. Making judgements about others based on our first impressions is certainly natural and wired in our thinking.  That’s why your Veryable resume has been designed to capture the things that companies care about most, like timeliness, safety, and the quality of your work.

The Halo Effect

The impact of first impressions is related to something called the “halo effect,” that phenomenon when our impression of someone is skewed by one positive trait This means that if you make a good impression based on the information on your resume, this will give rise to an overall good perception of you by the companies posting Ops.  Consequently, this could increase your chances of winning Ops! . Once an initial impression is made, it can be nearly impossible to change it inside people’s mind, so make sure you perform well in your Ops and continue building up your resume.

Bottom line is, you should never underestimate the importance of having a good resume and the impact that this can create on companies.  The Veryable resume is a fresh approach to resumes and an approach based on real performance and skills.  Please take the time to update your skills and experience in the profile section of your App to set up your resume for the best possible first impression.
