If you’re a student who wants to make cash over the holiday break, or between jobs and looking for a short-term opportunity, you might want to consider seasonal work during the holidays as an option.
Essentially, seasonal work during the holidays is the same as any temporary job, but usually addresses special needs of the Christmas shopping season. Specifics vary but generally it's to deal with the period that starts with “Black Friday” (the day after Thanksgiving) and ends early to mid January.
Some of the additional job opportunities are obvious. For example, delivery services need extra help with the surge of shipments, retailers need extra staff to restock shelves or check out customers. But the number of seasonal jobs – predicted to be over 700,000 this year
may surprise you.
