Summer Job Spotlight ... Promotions jobs with Mosaic

A while ago, I featured a variety of full- and part-time jobs with Consumer Impact Marketing, a provider of in-person/experimental marketing and sales management services in Canada.

Recently, my brother completed some contract work with Mosaic XM, another in-person/experimental brand marketing company in Canada. Like CIM, Mosaic is always looking to hire outgoing, personable, and professional people for temporary part- and full-time jobs promoting the latest products and services across Canada.

And so today, I thought I'd highlight the interesting opportunities available with Mosaic, what the Mosaic recruitment process involves, and how to make yourself stand out from other applicants.

To give you a sense of what Mosaic XM does, here's a small blurb from their website.

With over 20 years of success throughout North America, Mosaic is the clear leader in outsourced in-field services. More than that, however, we are leaders in the new reality of consumer-centric marketing. We execute 1000's of consumer events every year at retail locations, community events, or other targeted locations. All of this activity is seamlessly linked to a brand's overarching media strategy and delivered by trained Mosaic brand ambassadors.

If working for Mosaic sounds like the perfect job for you, you'll have to apply online as Mosaic accepts online applications. You can access a full list of available opportunities by visiting the Mosaic Job Portal and once you find a job that interests you, click on the "Apply Now" button.

Generally speaking, this is how Mosaic's recruitment strategy works. First you create a profile where you list your skills and experience as they relate to the job you are applying for. If you happen to be a good fit, you'll likely be called for a telephone screening interview. If you're successful at that, you'll proceed to the next step - the group interview. Sometimes there will be an additional in-person interview and other times not - it depends on the client and the urgency to staff the position.

Take note that the compensation varies depending on the client and the project. And some contracts will last a day or two, others longer - again, this depends on the client and the job you applied for.
