Seasonal employment is actually available year round, though when most say seasonal they are referring to holiday seasons. Companies like Disney operate all year because of their locations in areas that are warm most of the year. This time of year companies that offer multiple products may require extra help in all departments to meet customer demand(s).
Often because people shop and travel more during the holidays, many jobs become available that may not be readily available during other times of the year, if at all. It’s pretty obvious no organization would need more Thanksgiving or Christmas help except for during those times of the year, though any business can experience a rush of patronage at any time. Many of these jobs only open during the biggest holidays: a lot of shopping and travel occurs around Valentine’s Day and Easter also that often require extra hands on deck ~so to speak.
The jobs I have listed are not the only seasonal positions open. I tried to locate those organization’s that are currently recruiting/hiring for their busy times, some are already experiencing the upswing in visitors and semi-last minute shoppers. There are many opportunities to earn extra income this season. Those interested could perform micro-jobs or complete any number of freelance assignments to supplement for the holidays. We all have to do what we believe will be not only financially sound, but will also create success for the future.
