Just as the leaves begin to change colors, we start to see the first signs of the approaching holiday season. Pumpkins line neighborhood front porches, conversations turn to plans for upcoming family gatherings and Starbucks holiday drinks are all the rage. Yep, the holiday season is here.
In the staffing world, this means it’s time to think about holiday hiring. With help wanted signs still in the windows of many stores, some anticipate an even greater need for employees during the 2021 holidays. These seasonal jobs are available in many industries from retail and hospitality to pop-up holiday themed venues, all looking for full and part-time, or temporary help during the holiday season.
Temporary Holiday Jobs
A temporary holiday job can be a great option if you’re looking to learn new skills, explore employment opportunities in a new industry, or simply to get out of the house and meet new people. With so many employers needing to hire employees, this is an excellent opportunity to find flexible work that could be a great option for when the kids are in school, for a few hours during the evenings, or to keep busy while on the holiday break from school.
Holiday Job Perks
Earn Extra Money – Apply this extra money to plan for holiday bills, to jump start your savings for expenses or to establish a slush fund for fun purchases and travel in the year ahead.
Make New Connections – Consider a holiday job as an opportunity to meet new people and network. Plus, you never know where these connections might lead in the future.
Build Skills – Test out new career opportunities with minimal risk with part-time, temporary employment. In just a short amount of time, you could be growing or practicing skills that enhance or supplement your current skill set.
