Seasonal Jobs That Work for Your Skills and Schedule
U.S. seasonal job postings reached a record of over 1.2 million during the 2021 holiday season, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And in 2022, shoppers will likely start making purchases earlier than usual and spread them out over several months to stay within their budget. That means many holiday jobs may be available sooner, allowing you to make more money. Whether you’re looking for a short-term gig or something that could turn into a full-time position, see four ways PeopleReady can help you in your search for holiday jobs.
Explore seasonal jobs in your local area
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 like PeopleReady gives you access to holiday jobs right in your community—whether you prefer a one-time assignment or a more long-term role.
Find flexible work arrangements that fit your schedule
You likely have many other responsibilities outside of work—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. That’s where PeopleReady and our app, JobStack, come in. Whether you want to work during the traditional 9-to-5 or on nights and weekends, our jobs let you set your own hours and still have time to enjoy the holiday season.
Select jobs that match your interests
When you start your job search, it might be overwhelming at first to scroll through all your options to find jobs that fit your overall goals. Plus, many online job boards are only updated sporadically and often have duplicate postings. JobStack allows you to customize your job recommendations based on your interests and which jobs you’ve previously taken. With more access to relevant jobs daily, it will be easy for you to learn new skills while earning extra money.
Get paid for your work quickly and easily
With PeopleReady, you’ll know the exact rate of pay before accepting the job. We offer convenient payment options for you depending on your preferences. For instance, we offer direct deposit or our Wisely Cash Card for quick and easy payment. Plus, you are paid soon after you have completed an assignment. In fact, many of our part-time and temp jobs offer weekly or pay within 24-48 hours. That way, you can pay for gifts, decorations, travel and other expenses during the holiday season.
PeopleReady can match you with holiday jobs in 600-plus communities or through our website. Meanwhile, our JobStack app lets you apply to jobs 24/7 and choose ones that fit your skill set and schedule. JobStack also personalizes your job search experience so that the more you use it, the better your job recommendations. Some of the part-time and tempoary jobs we fill during the holiday season include:
- Retail: Retailers need extra in-store staff and fulfillment center workers to meet increased shopping demand.
- Manufacturing: Manufacturers need machine operators, assembly workers, and warehouse workers to create the products retailers need for customers.
- Events: Event venues need extra servers, catering staff, and line cooks to ensure successful holiday dinners and parties.
- Hospitality: Hotels and resorts need extra staff to keep holiday travelers happy and create an unforgettable guest experience.
