As we move into the colder months, it’s important to remember all your fall accessories. Fall is filled with sporting events and schools getting back in session, meaning we here at LGC are busy staffing jobs for the new season. Gigs are often unpredictable, but we’ve put together a list of fall accessories that any gig worker must have during their fall and cold weather shifts.
Must Have Fall Accessories for Gig Workers
As the weather gets colder, you’re going to need to layer up your work clothes. Especially if you’re working a shift outdoors, warmer clothing is a must for your fall gigs. Whether it’s a long sleeve under your regular work clothes or a jacket over top, layers are a necessity.
Hat and gloves
These items only apply if you’re working a shift outside, but they’re important, nonetheless. Keeping warm during your shift lets you enjoy your time working and keeps your head in the game instead of worrying about how cold the weather is. You’ll be sure to last the day comfortably if you bring a hat and gloves.
A clear bag or backpack will be your saving grace if you’re going to work a gig at a stadium. Almost all stadiums these days require your bag to be clear if you want to enter. This applies to employees as well as attendees of the event you’re working at. Make sure to keep a clear bag on hand if you know you’re going to be working a stadium shift.
These are another must if you know you’re going to be working a stadium shift. Non-slip shoes are normally required by stadium employers. Non-slips make sure you can move quickly around your station without fear of slipping and falling on something that may have spilled. These shoes are great to have for any shift, not just stadium ones.
Add an umbrella to your list of must-have fall accessories for a shift that’s outside. With the weather changing at a moment’s notice, you won’t want to get caught in a storm unprepared. A small umbrella should fit in that clear bag we mentioned earlier and will be useful for all shifts, not just the ones you work during the fall.
Reusable water bottle
No matter where your gig is, a reusable water bottle is an absolute necessity for any location. Staying hydrated during your shift, especially one that may be hectic thanks to large crowds, is a key way to stay on top of your game while you’re working. Not to mention, the water bottle should also fit in your clear bag.
Working gigs during the fall can be a great way to make some extra spending money for the holidays and a great way to experience local events happening around you. If you’re interested in working fall shifts, contact us today!
