How to Make Your Application Stand Out
25% of applications get rejected because the applicant didn't provide enough information.
Don't let that happen to you!
Some times there are personal questions that seem...well...too intrusive--such as your race, whether you have children, or your mode of transportation.
But it's important to answer these questions because the companies need to hire people within certain certain demographics.
They may send two mystery shoppers of different races to compare the differences in service.
And it would be silly to send someone who doesn't own a car for an oil change!
Also, your application needs to be free of any errors. No grammar errors, misspelled words, or unedited typos allowed.
As a mystery shopper, your writing will be how you communicate with the company, so be thorough, accurate, and well edited.
You'll be way ahead of the crowd by paying careful attention.
Remember, anyone can do this...whether they're young, old, a parent, grandparent, already employed, or just looking for a good time!
Who says the journey to millions has to be boring and no fun?
So what are you waiting for...get out there and help your kids apply...and get paid to shop!
How to Get More Assignments Than You Know What To Do With
This may seem obvious...but the more companies you apply for, the more assignments you'll be offered. You can do this online, for free, and in your spare time.
Companies NEED you for market research...and they need reliable people who like to shop, and want to make some extra money.
You'll be ahead of 90% of most shoppers simply by doing a thorough and accurate job.
Once you start getting jobs, give a good report. Be honest, straightforward, and extrememly detailed in answering all of their questions and following directions.
It also helps to accept last minute or slightly undesirable jobs. This will put you at the top of the list for future assignments.
Also, apply to a lot of mystery shopping companies, and do an outstanding job.
You'll be rewarded for your efforts with more and more jobs.
Earlier, I said you could possibly go on a cruise for FREE being a mystery shopper...(not a bad way to earn a vacation if you ask me)...
