As summer turns into fall, most industries begin to see a rush of holiday activity:

  • Retail needs extra in-store staff and fulfillment center workers to meet increased shopping demand.
  • Restaurants need extra servers, catering staff and line cooks to ensure successful holiday dinners and parties.
  • Hotels and resorts need extra concierge and cleaning staff to keep holiday travelers happy and create an unforgettable guest experience.

There’s a large variety of holiday jobs available, whether you’re looking for a short-term gig or something that could turn into a full-time position. See three reasons why PeopleReady can help you in your holiday job search.

Find holiday jobs near you

Finding a job within a short distance of your home helps you avoid the stresses of a long commute. That’s especially important during a time of year when there’s often inclement weather in many areas of the country. Having support from a local staffing agency gives you access to holiday jobs in your local community—whether you prefer a one-time assignment or a more long-term role. PeopleReady can connect you with top employers in communities near you who are looking for holiday workers, all while helping you earn extra income and grow your skills.

Get holiday jobs that fit your schedule

Outside of work, you likely have many other responsibilities—child care, school or family obligations. Add in holiday events and celebrations and you’ll have a busy schedule this time of year. Whatever your plans, you want to find a holiday job that doesn’t interfere with your life. Working with PeopleReady lets you accept jobs that fit your daily routine. Whether you want to work during the traditional 9-5 or on nights and weekends, you can set your own hours and still have time to enjoy your holiday season.

Access more holiday jobs every day

When you start your job search, it might be overwhelming at first to scroll through all your options to find jobs fit your overall goals. Plus, many online job boards are only updated sporadically and often have duplicate postings. Job search apps like PeopleReady’s app, JobStack, gives you the ability to customize your job recommendations based on your interests and which jobs you’ve taken in the past. With more access to relevant jobs every day, it will be easy for you to learn new skills while earning extra money.
