What is Mystery Shopping?

Mystery shopping is a two billion dollar industry online right now and is growing every year. The fact is that more and more companies are hiring outside of their business to see how their company is running.

They hire employees from agencies online who come to their websites, for example fitness clothing, and evaluate how the transaction took place. The information that these companies gain can help them improve their companies performance and attract new customers.

The way that the mystery shopping program works is that you sign up with an online agency that will put you in touch with companies looking for help with their business. Once you are hired on to do the job you may be asked to visit the storefront in person or online and rate your experience. You will be given the funds you need to make a purchase so you do not have to worry about laying out your own cash. You will visit the establishment and pay close attention to many things.

Your employer may want to see if you were approached by any employees for help, they may want to see if all the items in the store were clearly marked and they may also be concerned how you were treated at the register. You may be asked to evaluate how fast you were helped and if the employee was courteous to you. The online transactions work the same way where you would basically rate how your purchase was in the storefront and report back to your employer.

What Does the Egypt Crisis Mean to the Stock Market?

Given Egypt’s strategic place in the world, it is inevitable that any unrest in the region will have an enormous impact on the U.S. financial markets.


The principal impact of course is the Suez Canal, one of the world’s most vital waterways. 2.4 million barrels of oil a day pass through the canal or over 5% of the world’s total capacity as well as other vital cargoes like United States exports of Grain and goods moving from Asia to Europe. Were passage through the canal to be seriously disrupted shipping would have to divert around The Cape of Good Hope a distance of several thousand miles increasing the cost of maritime trade, including the cost of fuel, food, and much of the world’s imports and exports.

In addition to the Canal Egypt possesses the SuMed pipeline which handles over 2 and a half million barrels of oil a day for ships that cannot pass through the canal fully laden. Egypt is also a strategic lynchpin linking Africa and the Middle East. Instability there poses major threats to the war on terror and the regions Peace in general. Problems in Egypt will inevitably destabilize North Africa, and increase tension at a time in which the world is already struggling to deal with problems in Syria and Iran.

Unrest in Egypt in 2011 resulted in a 1.5% percent drop in the Standard and Poor’s 500 and a 1.4% drop in the Dow. Clearly the world economy has a stake in Egypt’s stability.

What Employers Are Looking For

No matter what the job is, an employer is looking for someone that will provide value to their company. However, there are also other points that an employer will look for in a person they are considering.

This can cover everything from personality to criminal record depending on the employer. They will look for someone that they will enjoy to see in the workplace on a daily basis as well. Employers will know when a candidate is trying to fake their personality during interviews so it is crucial to be yourself. Just be the most representable, concise, and respective version of yourself at the workplace.

Character traits are what an employer will really look for. Ambition is the main one. They want someone that is always looking to improve, always looking to do the best job so that the company will have success in the future. There will always be competition so there will always have to be ambition to get better. Commitment is also another big trait that employers look for. They want someone that will sink into their tasks and not stop until it is done in the best way. Initiative is a trait that an employer will love because people with initiative don’t have to be constantly told what to do. They see the big picture and work towards it.

Employers are looking for the specifications that make employees able to do their job but there are also parts of their character that they will analyze. Show these traits and an employer will definitely take notice. You should read a few books on how to successfully participate in an interview. You will find a lot of reviews at
