In today's email:

  • We LOVE this resume trick! It’s the best way to show your value!

  • In the news: Chegg is helping pay off employees’ student loans, why leaders can’t motivate their workers, & Citigroup layoffs.

  • Conveying your UVA in a job interview. This is what you need to know!

  • Why traditional outplacement services are a waste of money!! Here’s what to do instead.

If you’ve never heard us talk about the power of using numbers on your resume, you’re in for a treat. It’s one of the best ways to enhance your resume and will help you see better results in your job search.

If you want to show an employer the value you can create, so they can justify the cost of hiring you, you need to learn how to quantify your skills and experience. If an employer can’t quickly understand your value, they are not going to hire you. They need to know exactly what you can bring to the table. Not to mention, quantified information is much easier to read and understand. Recruiters and hiring managers don’t have time in their day to make guesses about your resume, they need the facts.

What does quantified information look like?

When you quantify the information on your resume you are using numbers to give a clear and more valuable representation of your skills and experience. Let’s look at an example:

  • Candidate #1: Fundraised for breast cancer research.

  • Candidate #2: Increased fundraising contributions for breast cancer research by 25% since 2014, raising a total of $15,000 in 2015.

Which candidate sounds more impressive? Which one provides more value? While they both say the same thing, Candidate #2 has proven much more value by quantifying the results of their fundraiser.

If you’re having trouble quantifying, this one simple trick will help you quantify almost anything on your resume!

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.

In the video above, J.T. explains why traditional job outplacement services are a waste of time and money after receiving this comment on one of her TikTok videos: “I’ve learned more from you in these few minutes, than anything I’ve learned from my LHH consultant over the past four months. You’re awesome.”

Many times when people are laid off, they will be provided with outplacement services through a company like LHH to help them find a new job. This is typically a four month package that includes some training and help with writing resumes. Unfortunately, people don’t tend to see positive results with these traditional outplacement services, so at the end of their package they are totally frustrated.

After months of not seeing the results they hoped they would get, job seekers come across our platform and give it a try. What else do they have to lose? Within days, our members start to get the results, land interviews, have “aha” moments, and realize what they were being taught wasn’t right.

Employers will spend thousands of dollars per person they lay off to provide outplacement services. They’re wasting their money because these services are dated and don’t actually provide much help to job seekers.

At Work It DAILY, we want to get everyone to come over to J.T. and our team when they get laid off, instead of having to waste their time with traditional outplacement services. Job seekers will see much better results with us at a fraction of the cost! A PREMIUM membership for 3 months will only cost you $207. That’s a lot better than a couple thousand!!

If you are someone who has been offered outplacement services and feel like you are not seeing any results, come give Work It DAILY a try.
