As the holidays approach, many businesses are ramping up their seasonal hiring in order to keep up. During this time of year many people find themselves needing a little extra spending money for the season and a temporary job is often a perfect fit. If you’re considering applying for some seasonal positions, here are a few of the most popular jobs to consider this year:

Food service: Tis the season for going out to eat with family, which means that many restaurants add on servers, prep cooks, dishwashers and more to keep up with demand.

Retail: Probably the most common type of seasonal employment is within retail stores. Companies like Apple, Gap, Lowe’s and more add staff to keep up with the holidays, so job seekers have quite a few choices, based on where they live.

Delivery: With all of the gift giving comes gift delivering, which means that major carriers such as UPS and FedEx will be adding some temp staff to keep up, and major retailers like Amazon will be looking to bolster their own delivery channels any way they can.

Seasonal work is a great way to earn a little extra holiday cash, and maybe even make some new connections and learn some new skills in the process.
