Job interviews can be stressful and intimidating, especially when you are not prepared. At Work It DAILY, we believe interview prep is one of the most important parts of any job search. Being prepared for an interview can be the difference between landing a new job or having to continue your job search.

There are so many different ways you can prepare for a job interview and one of the best ways is to do a mock interview.

A mock interview, is basically a practice interview. It allows you to test out your skills and practice answering potential questions. It’s the best way to simulate the actual interview process and reduce some stress.

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. talks about a client she recently worked with who was struggling with their job search. This person never had any problems getting hired in the past, but in todays job market he couldn’t get anyone to call him back.

J.T. took a look at his LinkedIn profile, resume, and cover letter and she immediately knew why he couldn’t land a single job interview. Everything was so out of date!

This client was making themselves out to be the “Jack and Jill of all trades”. He was doing everything to promote and make himself look good. Unfortunately, many times this comes across as desperate and is a major turn off to employers.

Instead, he needed to simplify everything to make it more readable. When you put everything you have ever done on your resume you overwhelm the reader. Instead, it’s better to have a simple approach, so when recruiters look at your resume they give you a call because they want to learn more.

Additionally, his cover letter was boring and was not being used to his advantage. J.T. coached this client to use storytelling to grab the attention of employers.

Small tweaks to your resume/LinkedIn profile and a connection story is all you need to make a huge difference in your job search.

Within TWO WEEKS after updating all of his documents, J.T.’s client received multiple interviews. Someone even said that was the best cover letter they have ever read! If that’s not enough to convince you, we don’t know what it.
