Seasonal jobs can be a good way for students to earn money while on break from their studies. But for many adults, including parents and retirees, temporary jobs are a reliable source of much-needed extra income during the holiday season.
Seasonal job seekers will find it a bit easier this year than last to find a part-time gig. Overall, employers are expected to boost hiring by 3 percent compared to last year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The key, of course, is finding a job that pays decently and isn't too physically or emotionally demanding.
