    You will have trouble with English if you assume that every time you see two words together, they must be a recognised phrase.

    A "gig" is another word for work or a short period of work.

    Tonight, I have a waitressing gig at a great hotel in town = Tonight, I will work as a waitress at a great hotel in town. (This is clearly a casual, temporary job.)

    The person in question used to be a consultant, or worked in consulting. He/She gave up that work.

    Note my corrections to your post in red. It is important to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
