In-Store Demonstration Personnel

Are you glued to the TV when “Emeril Live” is on? Do you know how to perfectly fold an omelet? You may be ready to take your show on the road. All great chefs have to start somewhere. Why not as an in-store demonstrator?

Such people are in high demand throughout the year, particularly during peak buying times. They do more than just prepare and hand out free samples. They engage customers and create interest in the products they represent. They are in the business of sales.

Don’t worry if you can’t boil an egg. Stores need people to demonstrate technical products, such as computer printers and sewing machines, too.

This is a great way to get some hands-on sales experience. Candidates with an outgoing personality are encouraged to apply.

The list of cool seasonal jobs goes on and on. Professional seasonal workers know this is a great way to try out new things, make some extra cash and have time off to pursue other interests.
