A micro job is, as the word implies, a very small paid task. A better word for microjobs might actually be "gigs" because the word "jobs" might imply employment, and no micro jobs are for employees but only for independent contractors.
What Are Micro Jobs?
The basic concept of a micro jobs--receiving a small fee for a small task--runs across many possible types of micro jobs. These might include:
Online tasks - These small tasks, or microtasks, can be done entirely online, requiring no real-world interaction. Buyers of these services advertise on microjob websites to find someone willing to do the task.
Real-world tasks - Similar to online tasks in that buyers of service advertise online for workers, the task is not completed online but in person. Websites promoting these types of micro jobs are basically a marketplace for odd jobs. Taskrabbit is one of the more popular real-work task site. However, Taskrabbit and others like it usually offer online tasks as well.
