If you are hoping to snag a seasonal job during this year's holidays, it's time to start looking now. Like the rest of the job market, competition will be fierce. What you might not think about, though, is that a seasonal job can be your ticket to full-time employment.

"Competition for seasonal positions will be intense as the job market is flooded with qualified candidates vying for a smaller number of open positions," said Brent Rasmussen, President of CareerBuilder North America. "Employers tell us they are accepting the majority of their seasonal applications during October and November, meaning job seekers need to identify and apply for those opportunities now."
