Layoffs can happen to anyone at anytime, and there is a decent chance you will be laid off at some point in your career.

If you’ve never experienced a lay off, consider yourself lucky. For those of us who have been laid off, we know how much it stinks. It affects everything from your mental health to your financial security to your career success. Whether you saw the lay off coming or you were completely blindsided by it, the whole experience is never fun.

However, just because you were laid off, doesn’t mean you don’t have any control of the situation. This is your career and you deserve to set yourself up for future success.

If you’ve been laid off recently, or think there is a chance you may be getting let go in the future, there are some things you should consider before looking for your next job.

If you can, you should have a meeting with your employer to ask these five questions after you’ve been laid off:

  1. When will I receive my last paycheck & how will I get it?

  2. Will I get paid for any outstanding vacation or personal time?

  3. How long will my medical benefits last?

  4. Am I eligible for rehire?

  5. Will I receive outplacement services to help with my job search?

To learn why we suggest you ask these questions, continue reading the full article.

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.
