If you are a recent college grad, and you can’t find a job, know you are not alone!

In college you worked really hard to get good grades, participate in events, and maybe even work a part time job. You were told that if you want a successful career in today’s competitive job market, you will need a college degree. Now you have that degree, and you can’t even get hired… what’s up with that?

Competition is fiercer than ever for individuals with bachelors degrees, making it harder to find a job. It might be time to re-evaluate your job search strategy, so you can start to see some better results.

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.

Today’s Workspace Wonders Recommendation are light therapy lamps for your workspace. Daylight savings hit us hard this week and we are still adjusting to it being dark at 4:30pm. (Even though this happens every year, we still aren’t used to it) As the days get shorter, we lose a lot of natural sunlight, which can cause many of use to be more tired and depressed. These light therapy lamps are a great way to mimic that natural sunlight we love and miss during the winter months. Light therapy lamps help you sleep better, boost energy levels, and put you in a better mood. Here are some that we love:

career success

There are only three types of work: a job, a career, & a calling.

What you do for work falls into one of these three categories.

A job pays the bills and doesn’t bring you much satisfaction other than meeting your financial needs.

A career not only pays the bills, but it’s more satisfying than a job. You are using and leveraging some of your strengths in a career.

A calling is what you were meant to do! You are satisfied, leveraging all your strengths, and it pays the bills.

Society has made us believe that a calling is the only thing we should be striving for in our work lives. However, your life is always changing, so at times a job is all you are going to need. And at other times a career or calling may be more suitable for your situation. Here’s what you need to know.
