The Secret to Successfully Landing Promotions Jobs!

How Familiar Are You With Promotions Jobs?

Have you ever wondered how people land fun promotions jobs at music festivals, trade shows, fashion shows and product launches? If you don’t know where to look or who to talk to, then working these types of special events can be a challenging endeavor. But since you’re reading this blog post—you’re on the right track! Signing on with our agency at Tigris can better position you to get hired for promotions jobs in your area but first, let’s clear up a few misconceptions in the industry.

Misconception #1: You must have supermodel looks and a body to match to work promotions jobs.
FALSE. While profile photos are collected during the application process, the real focus is on people who are presentable, poised and professional. Brand image is important and every client has different qualities they are looking for.

Misconception #2: Staff working promotions jobs must wear revealing clothing to attract consumers for a better chance at selling a product or service.
FALSE. A reputable brand agency will never provide their staff with a uniform that is anything less than professional. Wardbrobe is always communicated in advance so staff can make an informed decision about what they do and don’t feel comfortable working.

Misconception#3: Promotions jobs offer minimum wage.
FALSE.  While your pay may vary depending on the brand or event, payment from Tigris is consistently fact higher than industry standard and typically ranges from $18 to $30/hr plus some authorized expenses like parking.

Misconception#4: There is next to no work involved in promotions jobs.  Your job as a promotional model is to look good.
FALSE. When the promotion jobs description includes the word “model”, many people assume that the only requirement  is a pretty face, but that’s not the case in the promo model world—at least not for us. Staff are expected to have in-depth knowledge of the brands they represent so they can proactively engage with the public and intelligently respond to the queries they receive.
