  • Do you have a narcissistic resume? 4 warning signs & how to fix it.

You’ve probably heard about all the layoffs going on right now. Companies are financially insecure, they aren’t making their numbers and are starting to panic. And unfortunately, the easiest way to cut costs, is to cut staff.

Many companies are transparent about their financial situation (or whatever else may be happening) and will admit they are laying off. It’s not your fault, they just no longer have the resources to be able to provide you a salary. It stinks, but at least you know it’s no fault of your own.

However, there are some companies who don’t want to admit to layoffs and will say it’s a firing instead.

When companies fire employees instead of laying them off, it’s because they don’t want to admit it was their own fault. A firing blames the employee not the employer. If you are fired, it’s usually because you are underperforming, not because the company is struggling.

So why do employers decide to fire people if it really should have been a lay off?

Here’s what you need to know… Hint: it has to do with money :(

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.

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.
