These occupations require keen observational skills and stealth at blending in anonymously. Workers unite through professional organizations such as the Society for Technical Communication, the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the Mystery Shopping Providers Association.

Workers are guided by codes of their professional community.

  • Respect the rights of authors, creators and inventors and obtain permission before using their tricks.
  • Follow principles of honesty, professionalism, fairness and confidentiality to guard the interests of the public and clients in order to promote good business practices.
  • Evaluate communication products and services constructively and tactfully, and seek definitive assessments of our own professional performance.

These occupations are among the top 10 in the Philippines.

A talented magician can earn up to 173.45 USD per party.
A mystery shopper can earn 81.64 USD per project to dine, phone or test a service.
A passionate blogger can earn more than 69.38 USD for an article.

It’s someone’s job to produce something from nothing but it’s unknown who shops for market researchers or writes a manual for magicians.
