Those 600,000 Holiday Jobs: 40 Percent Could Become Permanent

Of the 600,000 hired for the holiday season, about 40 percent could receive permanent offers from employers, reports ABC News. That's what a recent survey by CareerBuilder.com found.

Beulah Hargrove at the JCPenney store in Manhattan has been presented with such an offer. The crowds flooding the stores and shopping online during Black Friday weekend signal that Hargrove won't be atypical in having temporary work turn into the permanent kind.
