Abstract

As the sharing economic market grows, the subject of sharing is expanding to intangible resources such as time, experience, and expertise. The phenomenon that an individual temporarily participates in the platform by utilizing own intangible resources is defined as a ‘gig economy’. The gig economy has a positive expectation that can create new jobs, but also has negative warnings that it is only a temporary job based on low wages. The gig economy market is growing rapidly in Korea, however there are very few academic discussions. This study examines the experiences of resource providers in the Korean gig economic platform, and then explores future job changes based on the perception of resource providers. This study selected the subject of research as a talent sharing platform and conducted in-depth interviews with 16 resource providers. The results of the research were presented through content analysis, and their experiences and perceptions were classified into six themes. This study implies academic and practical significance in exploring in depth the overall experience of resource suppliers and in suggesting proposals for desirable successful market growth.
