It’s finally Friday! 🎉

Could this be the top job at Netflix? 🏆
Netflix taggers, the unsung heroes behind your personalized binge-worthy recommendations, have a job that’s as intriguing as the content they help curate.
Picture this: a cozy room filled with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, dimmed lights, and a giant screen displaying the latest and greatest shows. This is the workplace of a Netflix tagger, where the job isn’t just about watching TV — it’s an artform. 🎨
Responsibilities? They’re like modern-day treasure hunters, meticulously dissecting shows and movies to assign the perfect tags that unlock the secret to your entertainment soul. Whether it’s identifying the subtle humor in a dark drama or recognizing the nostalgic vibes of an 80s-themed series, taggers bridge the gap between your preferences and the vast sea of content.
To snag this dreamy gig, you don’t necessarily need a film degree (though it wouldn’t hurt). Netflix looks for passionate individuals with a keen eye for detail and a knack for understanding diverse tastes. Creativity is key, as taggers need to think beyond genres, capturing the essence of a story in just a few words.
So, if you’ve ever been told you have a sixth sense for predicting plot twists or recommending hidden gems, this might be your calling.
As for earnings, it’s the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Netflix taggers are compensated handsomely, reflecting the importance of their role in shaping the viewer experience — between $ 35k and $ 85k a year! 🤑
Say adiós to boring work! 👋
You've probably heard that we spend an average of 90,000 hours at work over our lifetimes. That sure is a staggering amount of time to spend feeling bored, frustrated and unfulfilled in a role that’s not quite right for us.
If this resonates with you, and you’ve made it your #1 goal to change careers in 2024, we’d like to help. These are some steps you can take to bag an exciting job and swap out the mundane for something out of the ordinary!
Do your research. Search for unusual and out-of-the-box jobs online, take career quizzes, assess your current skill set and experience. What unexpected roles could you see yourself thriving in?
Consider your career goals — or set some, if you have none. What kind of lifestyle do you envision? What about the working hours, salary and work environment? The more specific your vision, the better.
Identify any qualifications or training you’d need to take to make your dream a reality. Carve out time in your week to expand your knowledge, little by little. 🤓
Introduce yourself to people who’ve made careers out of the unexpected, or follow them online. Reach out to them, ask questions, read interviews, hear what they’re saying. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel!
Invest in personal branding. We mean it — take personal branding seriously. The more you look and sound the part, the easier carving out your path will be.

Getting ready to start a job hunt? Well, you’re gonna need a lot more than just experience and qualifications in your toolbelt to land an interview.
Our gift to you this Friday is our Job Search Essentials checklist: 25 things you need in your arsenal for a successful job search!
