Tis the season for family gatherings, home-cooked meals, spreading goodwill– and looking for temp work?! Yes, the holiday season is rapidly approaching, which means that many people will be searching for temporary job opportunities. Some are college students home during winter break looking to bulk up their bank accounts and resumes. Others are teachers, part-time workers, or stay-at-home parents hoping to bring in some extra cash for the holidays. Below, we’ve listed some of the common temporary jobs available during the holiday season:
Package handlers. Holiday shopping means that there are plenty of packages that need to be loaded, unloaded, and sorted. Shipping companies often hire temporary workers to help lighten their load during this busy time of year.
Administrative help. There are a variety of administrative-related roles that often need an extra pair of hands during the holidays. For example, fall is open enrollment season in many companies, so Human Resource staff often find themselves swamped. Having extra administrative help during this time offers overwhelmed HR workers much-needed relief.
Receptionist/Clerical. For many people, the holiday season means that it’s time to travel. Thus, the hospitality and tourism industry often gets an influx of business during this time. Many hotels are looking for reinforcements to help cover the front desk, answer phones, and perform clerical duties to get them through this busy season.
Extra coverage. Many companies– across all industries– like to have extra coverage on standby during this time of year when permanent employees go on vacation. Thus, temporary workers can often fill in for absent employees in a variety of roles– light industrial, manufacturing, administrative, and more.
