21 Companies Hiring for the Holidays

holiday jobsEach year retail stores seem to put up holiday decorations earlier than the year before. One moment students are grabbing notebooks and glue bottles from the back-to-school displays, and the next an oversize, inflatable turkey is advertising Thanksgiving decor.

Although you might think that the store decorations and displays don't give you time to catch your breath between the summer and holiday season, don't forget that more action is going on behind the scenes. In November and December, shoppers spend money. Whether they're buying clothes or electronics or opening a new savings account because of a bank promotion, they have money and want to use it. To handle the extra traffic, companies hire new workers. And if you've ever looked for a job, you know the process takes a few weeks. You don't often apply for a job and get hired the same day. That's why companies begin their search for holiday workers in advance.

In other words, if you're thinking that a seasonal job sounds good for you, you should start looking right now. Whether you want some extra spending money or you'd like to get your foot in the door at a company, a seasonal job might be the right fit for you.
