Have you ever started to panic when an email you sent days ago hasn’t been answered yet?

Anxiety around unanswered emails is common, and is especially prominent in job seekers. Whether the message is to a colleague, networking contact, online application, or recruiter the stress of not receiving a response can be crippling.

We get messages all the time from panicked job seekers asking what they should do when their email goes unanswered. Every time this happens, we tell our clients to take a deep breath and follow three specific tips.

If you want to increase your chance at getting a response when sending out an follow-up email, you need to be strategic about when and what you’re sending.

Three things to consider before sending a follow-up email:

  1. Wait one full business week before following-up.

  2. Never send a nudge on a Monday.

  3. Send value, not a request for help.

By following this advice, hopefully your anxiety around unanswered emails will start to decline. You’ve got this!

Here’s what’s going on in the news (related to careers of course):

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.
