Adobe, the software giant, found moonlighters take on multiple jobs for money (69%) and to pursue a passion (27%). Other reasons cited include networking opportunities, to gain new skills necessary to shift careers, to obtain more experience, to help others, for fun, and social interaction with other people.
Adobe suggests moonlighting is more common than people think, with 1 in 3 US citizens moonlighting and almost 1 in 4 UK citizens. Over half of office workers surveyed believe multiple jobs will be the norm in the future.
In Adobe’s Survey “Work in Progress” moonlighters are likely to be more optimistic and happier than their single-job coworkers.
