Attention Mystery Shoppers

ANNOUNCEMENT: JobMonkey.com just launched a brand new job category: mystery shopping

Have you ever felt like you spent your whole weekend running from one store to the next, catching up on grocery shopping, drug store stock-ups and department store sales?

If so, I’ve been you’ve wistfully thought to yourself: "Ha, if only I could get paid for all this shopping, I’d be rich!"  Well, believe it or not, there are people out there making a career out of shopping, and getting paid handsomely for it!

Mystery Shoppers are a part of a company’s overall marketing team; they help the company evaluate its products and, more importantly, its customer service and merchandising.  Some mystery shoppers focus on retail, others on the tourism industry (how’d you like to get paid to book five-star vacations to the French Mediterranean?!), and still others in dining and hospitality.

Take a quick look at our new mystery shopping job board for current listings. Try using the keyword search option with terms such as ‘mystery shopping,’ ‘secret shopping,’ and ‘market research.’

JobMonkey can help you get ready for a career as a mystery shopper with its articles about topics like who hires mystery shoppers, what does mystery shopping entail, and how much does mystery shopping pay? Plus, keep checking in back here for more in-depth posts and spotlights on this fun (and fulfilling) career.
