Mystery shopper jobs are unique opportunities that can catch the eyes of many job hunters once they are aware of their existence. The tasks involved sound simple since you basically act as a normal shopper while you interact with staff and observe your surroundings for evaluation purposes. It also pays a bit better compared to other simple jobs and you can even try some mystery shopping online. Since you cannot really try mystery shopping on your own unless you form your own mystery shopping business, you have to find some companies offering mystery shopper jobs without getting sucked into any scams.
Job directories should be your first target because many of these sites have mystery shopping as a category where other companies can make ad postings to look for potential candidates that are fit for the job. Since these job directories get lots of Internet traffic, you have to check these sites often because any available jobs can be snatched by other job hunters before you know it. The good news is that most popular job directories have officials that track down scammers rather quickly.
Forums are less likely places to find mystery shopper jobs compared to job directories but you may find some better companies that way. Companies that are very serious in finding people to take on the mystery shopper roles will go beyond standard job directories and head to forums where interested applicants can interact better with the people offering the job. Since forums rely on the community, other members may be able to post some mystery shopper leads that you might be interested in. You just have to find those work at home forums or any forums that tackle mystery shopper subjects. These sites can also give you a better overview on what mystery shopping is and how to be good at it if you never tried mystery shopping before.
