Here is a job that any one would love to have, especially if you
consider your self a mall rat- a mystery shopping job. While
many people are forced to work behind a cash register the whole
day at their local department store, there are many lucky people
who actually get paid to shop. It sounds incredible, but it is
true. Here are some tips on finding the best mystery shopping
jobs in your area.
You can search your local newspaper or call the human resources
office at your local department store, but you will probably not
find any mystery shopping jobs available. Many times retail
stores actually contract out for shopping jobs, which means that
a private agency other than the department store hires and
administers the work. Now since a shopping job is a job everyone
would love, they usually don't have to work that hard to
advertise, people usually find them.
One of the easiest ways to find services that hire mystery
shoppers is to purchase a directory. There are a few directories
on line. Each directory usually includes agencies that can hire
you for different shopping jobs depending on your style. You can
work at restaurants, high end department stores or everyday
retail outlets. Depending on your style will determine what kind
of job you will like to apply for.
These directory services also give you many important tips on
how to contact the agencies and tell you exactly what the
agencies are looking for in their employees. What skills to
have, how to dress etc. Knowing these important tips before
contacting them usually increases your chance of success. So if
you're interested in a great opportunity take a look at mystery
shopper job directories.
