Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

In today's email:

  • NEVER say this in your cover letter! It’s super outdated!

  • In the news: Anxiety in the workplace, fast food layoffs, & the best technology jobs.

  • Why do recruiters discriminate against the unemployed? Listen to what J.T. has to say.

  • Dear job seeker, STOP messing with your resume! Here’s why…

Many job seekers don’t understand the power a cover letter has in your job search. Many times, a well written cover letter can turn a “maybe” into a “yes”.

The little details are what’s important. Yes, we want the overall message to be amazing, but it’s the little things that will make you stand out.

The first thing a recruiter or hiring manager is going to read is how you address them. There are many ways to do this, but there is one method you should never, ever use… “To Whom It May Concern”.

Why? It’s boring, outdated, and impersonal. If you want to impress whoever is reading, put a little more effort into your job search and find the name of the hiring manager. That way you can address them by name, making it more personal and interesting. And if worst comes to worst, “Dear Hiring Manager” or “Dear Hiring Team” works just fine.

Don’t overlook these little details, they can make all the difference. Good luck!

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.
