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.

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.

Amina has worked for the same company for 5 years. During the pandemic, a bunch of her co-workers quit or were laid off. The company made it and is starting to grow again but, in spite of her asking, her boss refuses to hire her some help. She is doing her original job, plus the jobs of 2 other employees who left. When she pointed that out, the boss told her she was paid well (she was given a big raise) and that this was the new expectation of the job. When Patricia started looking for other jobs, she quickly realized she was getting paid way higher than others and that she’d be taking a 30% pay cut if she left. But she’s not sure how much more she can keep up with the 60 hour workweeks and the deadline stress.

We live in a world where condensed communication is becoming more and more popular.

Social media has created a place where short posts and videos dominate the preferred way to obtain information. Because of that, we feel more pressure to be brief in our communication for time and efficiency. This holds true to resumes too, in recent years the preferred length of a resume has been cut down to only a few pages.

If your resume is long, how could you possibly condense it to a few pages?

Less is more when it comes to resume writing and job seekers tend to add too much “fluff” in their resumes. “Fluff” includes anything from run on sentences to details that are irrelevant. By cutting these unnecessary parts of your resume you will be able to condense your resume into a length that is more acceptable. Recruiters only have so much time in the day to look at resumes, so if you can consolidate all of the important information about yourself, you will have a better chance of moving along in the hiring process.

Here are ten ways you can condense your resume without losing it’s value…
