Employment

Employment is a relationship between two parties, usually based on a contract where work is paid for, where one party, which may be a corporation, for profit, not-for-profit organization, co-operative or other entity is the employer and the other is the employee. Employees work in return for payment, which may be in the form of an hourly wage, by piecework or an annual salary, depending on the type of work an employee does or which sector they are working in. Employees in some fields or sectors may receive gratuities, bonus payment or stock options.

To my knowledge, there are no hadith (addressed to either men or women) which discuss choosing between marriage and career (or marriage and studies), although there were both men and women with skilled professions among the sahabah (according to the professions of their society such as healing or craftsmanship). Perhaps it wasn't seen as something that one chooses between. That is, it was assumed that most people would marry and some people would also do other things. 

Although people have had professions and vocations for a long time, it seems that the modern idea of career began a hundred or two years ago, after the Industrial Revolution. 

Similarly, the idea that large numbers of people should invest a large portion of one's life in full-time studies in an institution, while doing little else, is also quite recent. So, the circumstances we have today are different from those in the time of the hadith.

Working in any job is allowed if the work itself is lawful and not dealing with any Haraam business or act. It does not make difference whether you work at night or during the day as far as the work itself is allowed.

Using pseudonym is also allowed as far as it does not lead to cheating people.

Bismillah, 

Asslamu Alaykom, 

Some companies give out money and rewards for those who fill out surveys in order for them to collect data. As long as this is a mutual agreement between you and the websites and does not involve any prohibited matter, then there isn't an issue.

Bismihi ta'ala

In fiqh, the religious director or an Islamic centre, or the Imām of the mosque is referred to as Imām al-Rātib, and his role is important in managing the religious affairs of the mosque. He can receive a regular income for his various services, like lectures, counseling, religious management, etc. 

It is problematic for the religious scholar to receive any financial benefit from doing something wajib or teaching something wajib, and even for jamā'ah prayer itself. It is not befitting for talib al-'ilm to be paid for leading prayers in itself, but he can receive salary for the preliminaries for these things, like travelling expenses, rent, and so on. 

Indeed, the more financially stable the religious scholar is the more effective he will be in serving his community. 

And Allah knows best.

Hijab is an obligatory practice on every Muslim female. Non Hijabi female working or mixing with men causes them looking at her hair or arms or legs which is itself not permissible for the men. We should cause any sin to any one. Discrimination is bad against people with equal qualities, but encouraging non Hijab is completely wrong and means disrespecting the orders of Allah (SWT).

Muslim must obey the orders of Allah in every matter and every field of life.

Yes it is allowed as far as the picture does not have anything against the rules of Islam. It should not be a picture of a female with out Hijab or any person or item or image which is not permissible in Islam.
