We are currently living in a time where the content we consume is short and brief. From videos to social media posts and stories, the content we see on a daily basis isn’t very long. In the job search world, this trend of short content has reduced the preferred length of a resume.

Currently, it’s better for your resume to be between two and three pages long. If you have a long resume, you might be panicking right now, “How am I supposed to fit it all my information in a few pages!”

Don’t worry, that’s exactly why we’ve written an article about this, to help you condense your resume without losing any valuable information.

Many time job seekers fill their resumes with unnecessary “fluff”. Things like run on sentences and irrelevant details can make a resume much longer than it needs to be. All this “fluff” is not benefiting you in any way.

This article will walk you though various areas in your resume that might have this unwanted “fluff”. It will guide you to remove or condense specific sections, so you can highlight only the most important information.

Once you’ve finished your resume, you will be more attractive to recruiters/hiring managers and will boost your chances of landing an interview. Good Luck!

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.
