CIM looking for temp and part time staff across Canada

Recently, I was browsing the Service Canada Job Bank and I came across many interesting opportunities with Consumer Impact Marketing, also known as CIM.

With positions in cities across Canada that range from temporary on-campus brand ambassador positions to permanent, part-time in-store demonstrator jobs, this is a great opportunity to get some very valuable work experience before the summer job season ramps up in January.

If you aren't familiar with CIM, here's a quick overview of what they do and what they're all about:

CIM was started back in December of 1993 and since then, it has gone on to become a marketing company with extensive expertise in brand marketing (promotional advertising, experiential marketing and shopper marketing) and sales management (sales, merchandising, relining, blitz. With major offices located in Toronto, Montreal, and Chicago, CIM has been named one of Canada' "50 Best Managed Companies" and one of the "Best Places to Work in Canada" since 2008.

So not to worry, this isn't some random fly-by-night operation - CIM has a track-record of success and integrity and CIM jobs don't require anything sketchy upfront.

Take a look at the extensive list of jobs with CIM by checking out the CIM jobs portal. There are part time retail jobs available in field sales (e.g. merchandiser jobs and in-store demonstrator jobs) and in field promotions (e.g. promotions jobs, brand ambassador jobs).

One thing to keep in mind is that these jobs can range from temporary, day-long contracts to more permanent part-time opportunities. Make sure you read the job ad thoroughly so that you know what the time commitments are like.

If you decide that is something you'd like to do, I recommend taking time to search through the database and selecting positions to add to your job cart. Then spend some time to create your profile - that means perfecting a customer service resume that highlights your communication, interpersonal, and sales skills along with your engaging personality.

The best part is that with the job cart, you can save the jobs you are interested in and then apply for them quickly with just a few clicks of the mouse. This is a great way to submit your resume to the variety of part time jobs with CIM that are available.

And remember, while these positions may be short-term and may involve lots of hard work, they offer great experience that will be a huge asset when the highly competitive summer job season begins in January.

Good luck!
