Explanation: Akzidenzarbeit is jobbing work - Langenscheidt Technik

carry out process-oriented measuring and testing work,
print, for example, jobbing or book-printing products, newspapers, magazines or packaging material. http://www.bibb.de/en/ausbildungsprofil_1778.htm
Yes, jobbing work typically implies quick turn around work, often one-off for a client you may never see again. Print shops that offer ‘design services’ are engaged in jobbing work, but it also happens in the freelance world. If someone phones you up and says ‘I need a business card design for a start-up company and I have a meeting with potential investors tomorrow morning’, that would constitute jobbing work. So to some degree it is defined by the amount of time and creativity you can afford to apply to the job. http://www.typophile.com/node/17605
