  • Felt like you have you hit rock bottom? This is for you.

LinkedIn has made it really easy for users to upload their resume to their profile. At first thought, this might seem like a good idea, however, we advise against it. Here’s why…

Your resume and LinkedIn profile should be treated as two separate resources for your job search. Yes, they are very similar and your resume should serve as a guide for your LinkedIn profile, but should ultimately be kept apart.

One of the main reasons we advise against uploading your resume to LinkedIn or any other social media platform, is for privacy reasons. When you make your resume public information, anyone can view and/or download it. This means your private contact information (phone number, email, address, etc.) is now available to anyone who comes across your profile.

Additionally, when you post your resume on your LinkedIn profile, you are practically screaming, “I NEED A JOB!” which might not be something you want to announce to the world. Recruiters and hiring managers are looking for top candidates to interview. These top candidates are people who are in demand and rarely “need” a job. By uploading your resume, you might take yourself out of the running as a top candidate.

Keep reading to learn more about why you need both a resume and a LinkedIn profile and why they should be kept separate!

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 an email she received the other day from a woman who has hit rock bottom in her career.

This person explained their entire career story and how they believe they have hit rock bottom. When J.T. finished reading her story, she sympathized with her, she knows how frustrating something like this can be. However, she had to be honest, because as someone who has worked with thousands of job seekers, J.T. knew that this person’s rock bottom is someone else’s better situation.

J.T. isn’t trying to downplay how hard, tough, and terrible this situation is for this woman. J.T. wants her to realize that there is a way to get out of this rock bottom, but it can only be done if she takes action herself.

You are the only person who can take control of your career. You have to try new and different things to get more opportunities. And it will only work if you believe in yourself.

The best part about this? You will be able to celebrate the fact that you did this for yourself. You will be the one to pull yourself out of rock bottom, and it’s going to feel so good!

To take action and try new things, follow J.T. on TikTok or YouTube. Watch videos, post your questions, and start conservations. You’ll be surprised at how much knowledge you will gain.
