It's getting closer to that time of year again. As the temperatures drop, so do bank account balances from holiday gift shopping, Black Friday spending sprees, travel and more. Experts estimate that 2018 holiday spending in the United States could reach up to $1.1 trillion, accounting for a quarter of retail sales this year. There's no doubt that the vast majority of Americans will spend a lot of their hard-earned money in the next few months to bring joy to their family and friends, but it's not always easily affordable. Some people might even dread the holidays because they know it will drain their checking account. It doesn't have to be that way -- here's how.
Find A Temp Job
Temporary employment is a great way to make some money during a career transition, as a way to try out a new industry or even to make some extra money during seasonal employment. Temporary jobs are exactly what they sound like: employment that lasts for a designated period of time. Whether that means the position is seasonal, or simply because companies just need additional assistance for a particular project, is completely at the discretion of the employer in question. But the fact of the matter is that the holidays are crazy busy for many industries, not just retail storefronts and ecommerce sites, so many companies need a lot of extra staff from October to January each year. That's why they turn to us.
What Type Of Industries Hire During The Holidays?
During hectic holidays, companies are in need of extra staff to stay efficient and provide quality goods and services to consumers. During the month of October, Halloween decoration manufacturers, candymakers and costume creators need temp employees to help run the show. Once November hits, things start to really ramp up. Many warehouses and factories need forklift operators and delivery drivers to take care of the extra stock that will inevitably be sold out during Black Friday. And of course, during the month of December, last-minute Christmas shopping gets wrapped up, affecting industries across the board. Delivery drivers, warehouse/inventory workers, general labor, assembly and packing all see a boost in employment numbers during this time.
