I just had this emailed to me in case anyone is interested (I don't actually know anything about the company, just passing on the email)...mods please let me know if I'm out of bounds here.

Would you like to try before you buy?
So do we! At First Point Presentations we have a great team of mothers who visit play groups and mothers groups, introducing new products for mums & family - things like nappies, coffee, snacks, cleaning products and holidays - basically giving out free samples while having a chat.  

We are urgently looking to employ staff to help us conduct these Presentations in Melbourne, Sydney (and North Shore), Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Our Presenters are paid a set fee per Presentation and all Presentations are booked for you by head office. Presentations are held within 20 mins of your home. There is no selling, no party plan or other sales/commission involved (ie there is no catch), just promotion of products. You receive full training and can do as many or few Presentations as you like you simply need to be available at least 2-3 afternoons or mornings per week.

If this is of interest to you please email your CV/Resume to info@firstpointpresentations.com.au

I don't actually know any more details than what is in the description (It came through an email mailing list, but a trusted one). I wouldn't think you could take children to be honest, probably too distracting but can't hurt to ask I guess?

i have heard of this company before
and have actually had a presentation done at my house by a similar company, for my mothers group.
we got LOADS of samples, got told about all sorts of products, and even got some party pies cooked up original.gif
we were not asked to commit to anything, or buy any products at all.
as PP have said, its just promoting.
better than doing it in shops, if you ask me, becuase you have been invited into someones home, so you would assume they want to hear what you have to say

just my 20c worth LOL


ETA i dont think you would be able to take your own children along - you'd be too busy

Congratulations cooltate23 - hope it works out for you. What state are you in? Can you give us any more details about what the job actually is please?

Hey that's great cooltate23, hope it works out really well for you.  And all the best to anyone else who is applying (or waiting to hear back).

I had my phone interview.  I am from NSW.  The actual job sounds really good.  A presentation takes no more than half an hour and you have an assigned area generally in a 20 minute radius.  Pay was $40 per presentation.  That is all I really know from the phone interview.  Am waiting for a face to face interview.

Hi - quick question - do you have to go out and find places/people to give the presentations to or are they given to you by the company??


#21 rooney

Posted 09 March 2007 - 08:34 PM

Thanks for posting.  I sent my resume and got a phone call back and attended an interview.  Got the job and was told that they had a huge response because it was also advertised in Melb Child.  Attended my first training session and it sounds great.  Bit scared about doing my first presentation but I will be watching someone else do it before I do it.  I think they are still searching for someone from Northcote area.
