Often times your resume is how a potential employer gets to first meet you.

That being said, you want your resume to make a good first impression. If a recruiter of hiring manager sees your resume, you want to make sure you will be put in the ‘yes’ pile and not the trash.

Silly mistakes on resumes cause employers to shake their head and move on to the next resume. And when we say mistakes we don’t mean spelling errors or formatting problems. Those types of things should never end up in a final draft of your resume, because you should be proof reading your documents thoroughly.

The mistakes we are talking about are easy to make and you probably don’t even realize you are making them. The good news? They are easy to fix and we can show you how.

Here are three BIG mistakes you should avoid on your resume…

5 Reasons To Make SurveyJunkie Your Next Side Hustle

There are several reasons why someone might choose to have a side hustle as an online survey taker for SurveyJunkie. Here are five possible reasons:

1. Flexibility: Online survey taking allows for flexibility in terms of working hours. As a survey taker, you can typically choose when and where you want to complete surveys. This flexibility is especially beneficial for individuals who have other commitments such as a full-time job, studies, or family responsibilities.

2. Extra Income: One of the primary motivations for having a side hustle is to earn additional income. SurveyJunkie offers compensation to survey takers for completing surveys. While the income may vary depending on factors like survey length and complexity, it can be a convenient way to supplement your regular income or save up for specific goals.

3. Low Entry Barrier: Starting as an online survey taker usually has a low barrier to entry. SurveyJunkie, for example, allows individuals to sign up easily and start taking surveys without requiring specialized skills or experience. This accessibility makes it an attractive option for people looking to earn money without needing extensive training or qualifications.

4. Work from Anywhere: Online survey taking provides the opportunity to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether you prefer to work from the comfort of your home, a coffee shop, or while traveling, as long as you have access to the internet, you can take surveys and earn money. This flexibility can be particularly appealing for digital nomads or individuals seeking location-independent work.

5. Variety and Engagement: Participating in online surveys exposes you to a range of topics and provides an opportunity to share your opinions. This can be interesting and engaging for individuals who enjoy expressing their thoughts, providing feedback, or learning about different subjects. It can also serve as a way to stay updated on market trends, consumer preferences, and new products or services.

If you are searching for a new job you might be wondering how you should represent all of that experience and skills on your resume. Our Resume & LinkedIn Bootcamp can teach you just that.
