shopper crossing

As most of you know, I am currently in between jobs (Hahaha! I just can’t utter the word!) so this news came as a pleasant surprise. No, I didn’t land a full time job – still trying to find the one for me through the job seeker’s course I am attending – but I got a good head start. Last week, I landed a freelance job I applied for one and a half years ago (!!!). Now I can add global shopper to my curriculum vitae.


The job entails product research and, of course, shopping. The headquarters is overseas. So working for someone in another part of the world and being part of a global enterprise are clearly, part of the charm of this job. The extent of the company’s knowledge and coverage on market research and product innovation is mind blowing, that clients and agencies around the world are raving about them.

Shopping and getting paid to do it – sweet, eh?
