THE HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER,
AGIP OIL COMPANY LIMITED
PIAZZALE ENRICO MATTEI, 1 – 00144
JOB REF: OSR/STF/07524/AGIP
AGIP Oil Company has just completed the new phase of database upgrading, paving way for taking in fresh Online Representative Staffs. An opportunity created by the company to empower considered people from across the globe. It is a very lucrative business opportunity, and also a secret which so many people who were luckily considered for the job have used to generate millions of dollars in just few months, working part-time from their homes.
All that the job requires is at most one hour (1 hour) to be online to read and send emails to company’s client, buyers and business associates as an online representative, under the umbrella of the company. The company provides licenses and most times also assigns crude oil vessels to be under the control of employed Online Representatives, such that prospective buyers will have to contact them via email to get quotations and sales price of any vessel put under heir control, then if the buyers are interested in buying, sales will be made through the contracted Online staff(s), and they get commission for that sales, which is 0.005% of the total sales capital realized.
Individual staffs reserves the opportunity to hike the selling price of vessels put under their control, and depending on their ability to negotiate the high price with their buyer, they make extra profits for themselves, which most times are in hundreds of thousands of Dollars. The job initially was provided by the company as a way of compensating members of certain families whose deceased formally worked with the company, but company later discovered that sales made through individual representative as a sole dealer is higher in price than that made directly through company. So, company adopted the strategy by employing people as online representative, empower them and make sales through them.
No experience is needed, as company provides all logistic training to all employed representatives and staffs. Applicants do not need to quit your present job, and also will not have problems with their present employers.
Employment has just commenced, and company will be taking in fresh Applicants from across the globe. Only those applicants who are luckily selected at random will be considered for an employment.
