Instagram Initial Message
Hey NAME, I know you don’t know me personally but I manage a small business here in NJ. We’re located in Morris County, but because of the current situation, our team is working entirely remotely. We have a few students on our team who go to SCHOOL, so I figured I’d message some people who also go there. The schedules are flexible to work around classes or other commitments. Are you or anybody you know currently looking for work this semester?


Facebook Initial Messages

Messaging People You Know (FB or IG)

Hey NAME!  I hope everything is as good as possible for you and your family. The place I have been working is interviewing right now for work from home positions.  I volunteered to reach out to some people in my network to get the word out. I’ve had a great experience and made some really good money.  Are you, or anyone else you know looking for something new for the summer?

Messaging New Friends

Hey NAME! I know you don’t know me personally, but I work at a small business here in Morris County. We are located Boonton (even though our team is currently working from home). Anyway, we work with a lot of local students during their summer break… Are you (or anybody you know) looking for work this summer?

Interested/Not Interested In Work

“I’m interested.”

Great! Here’s a link with more information and a brief form. You can request an interview in less than 1 minute:

“Yea, I know some people that need work.”

Oh cool! Here’s a link that way they can get some info and request an interview for the position.

“Not Interested”

No problem, take it easy and let me know if things change or if you know anyone looking for work feel free to pass along the link

Other Questions

“What’s the job?”

Sure, so it’s entry level sales and customer service. Basically what someone would get paid to do is talk with customers (Phone/Zoom), presenting products, answering questions, and helping them place orders. Pretty simple stuff. Did you want me to send you a link so that you or your friends can apply?

“Where are you guys located?”

Our office is located in Boonton, but all of our team members are interviewing and training remotely (from home). After that, our reps usually work from home or in their area. Did you want me to send you a link so that you or your friends can apply?

What is the pay?

Great question. The starting pay is $17 base-appt with the opportunity to earn more based on performance (basically rewarding work ethic). We cover the full details of pay during the interview process though. Did you want me to send you a link so that you or your friends can apply?

“I’ll let my friends know” (but they don’t show interest in applying)

Thank you!!  Btw what do you have planned for this summer? Idk if you’re a student but all of our students have a chance at different scholarships as well as internship experience to put on their resume.

(Then I send the next message as a back to back message) ~If you want, you can check out the link too and see if you like it.

“What’s the name/product?”

It’s Cutco cutlery! It’s a bunch of stuff for the kitchen like pots and pans, flatware and kitchen knives. Haha the majority of our customers are moms/families lol and they love the stuff. Would you like me to send you a link where you can request an interview?

“What are the hours?”

The hours are flexible. We work with a lot of students who have different commitments for summer break.  So the schedule really depends on the applicant’s schedule. Would you like me to send you a link where you can request an interview?

“I already have a job.”

That’s cool.  The schedules are really flexible and we have a lot of people that work around other jobs.  Here’s the link to the application. Check it out if you need more hours at any point this summer.

“What’s the company (I didn’t see it in the description)”

The company is Vector which is the marketing and sales branch for Cutco. We are looking to fill several entry level sales and customer service positions. It is a great opportunity for students to build their resume with real world experience. The managers will be going over all the details during the interviews. Would you like me to send you a link where you can request an interview?

“What’s the scholarship/internship”

So the scholarship is based on performance with the company, but my friend John has received two the past two semesters and it’s pretty cool. The internships obviously vary college to college but I and other Endicott students were able to receive multiple credits. I was able to submit a summer position with the company, and a description of the position to my internship/co-op coordinator and it was approved. My manager told me more about it in the interview! Would you like me to send you a link where you can request an interview?

How flexible is the schedule?

We explain more details in the interview, but basically students are able to meet with a manager weekly to pick out the exact number of hours that works best for them. It was really easy for me to fit in all of the important time with my family and friends, and still be able to work when I wanted to! Would you like me to send you a link where you can request an interview?

“I’ll let my friends know.” (but they don’t show interest in applying)

Thank you so much! What I can do then is just give you the link for you or anyone of your friends to apply just in case. The company is taking applications on a first applied first considered basis.

When the Convo is Over and They Fill Out the Application

Oh and if you can, could you share the post I just put up on my wall about the position? I’m trying to get the word out and some of your friends might be looking for summer work.

(NOTE: DO NOT overlook this part if the prospect is popular. My Assistant Manager, Jami Perkins, from my only private school heard about Vector from a no show sharing my post on Facebook. She had a 10k SC1 push and was my top rep for the summer 26k in sales)

Why is this important to post?

  • Skylar Gilley, 6k fast starter, first training seminar I ran in my office did not reply to the message I sent her but she did apply because she saw the application on her news feed because I posted this.
  • Because I am friends with 2 thousand students in my territory when I post a work opening for the summer almost all of them see it on their news feed.
  • This goes hand in hand with the direct messaging because this is the post they should share.
Following Up


Hi again NAME! I was looking over the incoming applications and didn’t see yours. I’m not sure if you’re interested or not, but I wanted to check in one last time to let you know that I’m currently reviewing all apps for the week now and could add yours to the mix.


Hi again NAME! If you can, could you share the post I just put up on my wall about the position? I know you mentioned you would reach out to a few people and I appreciate it. I’m just trying to make sure people know about the opportunity!
