Charlottesville, VA – Wednesday, February 18, 2015 – Moonlighting, LLC, the first “get anything done” marketplace, today announced the availability of Moonlighting University, an educational platform created to transform dedicated workers into knowledgeable entrepreneurs. Moonlighting lets anyone participate in the new sharing economy and collaborate to create and fill jobs in every state across the country.

Educational Platform Trains the Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow

Investing in the Future of the Middle-Class Economy
Moonlighting sits at the crossroads of social networking, mobile commerce, job discoverability and the expanding sharing economy arena. Across the nation, individuals and small businesses are empowered to create, share and fulfill jobs. Instead of charging for education, Moonlighting is actually investing $10 in participants that complete the Moonlighting University process. Moonlighting is helping people to transform their income and positively impact the economy of the middle-class with new opportunities and jobs.
In January, Moonlighting’s five-star app was featured first in the Business category in the Apple App Store. Moonlighting, available on iOS and Android devices, continues to be the only two-sided marketplace that allows individuals to both hire someone or find a job, and to make or receive payments for services all from the same mobile platform. The new Moonlighting University is an educational platform for anyone that wants to transform their personal income.
“Moonlighting continues to inspire a new generation of workers who have decided to empower themselves. Our platform was designed from day one to allow everyone in the country to promote the jobs they really want to do. The mission is clear for us, we need to bring the sharing economy to the people who need it most so they springboard the career they always dreamed of. Our free Moonlighting University will teach millions of American workers how to make money quickly right from their mobile phone,” said Founder and CEO Jeff Tennery.
