Summer is over, and while you might be focused on getting ready for fall, it’s actually time to take it a step further. That’s right. It’s officially holiday hiring season.
Now, I know what you may be thinking, “Kim. I need to figure out what I’m going to be for Halloween this year, and then I’ll start to think about my holiday job.”
Well that would a mistake.
Imagine what would happen if you do put off your holiday job search until you start to see actual holiday decorations everywhere. Chances are your options will be limited and you may find yourself in a job that you really don’t enjoy. Every year, Snagajob surveys over 1,000 hiring managers to find out what you need to know to find a seasonal job…fast. We found that over half of the jobs will be filled by October.
So make it a priority this fall to get your holiday job in place. Even if you can’t start working until the season really kicks off, employers just want to make sure their team is in place by the time the busy season begins.
Just think about how nice it will be to sit back with your pumpkin spice latte knowing you have a job nailed down, while everyone who waits until the last minute is scrambling to find a job this holiday season.
And to make it easy on you, we’re closely following the companies who announce major seasonal hiring. Check out everyone who’s hiring for the holidays.
