Working A Seasonal Job

December 29 2017

Working A Seasonal JobIf you work a job with flexible hours, you may be able to work a seasonal job this winter. This can help provide fulfillment and enhance your career development, as well as create extra income to pad your year-end savings or pay for holiday gifts. Seasonal jobs are also great for college students coming home for winter break. 

Consider applying for one of these seasonal jobs if you’d like to take advantage of your flexible hours. 

1) Accounting – Tax season is only a few months away, and many will be looking to get their finances in order before filing their taxes as the year comes to a close. If you have bookkeeping, tax, or personal finance experience, you could provide great assistance for those looking for help with their taxes. 

2) Work-From-Home Customer Service – More than ever, companies are looking for seasonal workers with professional experience. Large companies are offering work-from-home customer service jobs during the holiday season. These jobs often offer flexible hours, and a great opportunity to gain customer service experience. 

3) Deliveries – UPS, FedEx, and other delivery services hire millions of seasonal workers each year. They normally pay very well and can allow you to stay active while working.  

Enhancing Your Career Development 

If you are unsatisfied with your current job, seasonal work can allow you to try new things. Successful seasonal work could lead to a full-time position. Seasonal positions can help you gain skills that your full-time job would not otherwise allow you to. For example, working in retail can teach patience and customer service skills. You could also gain sales experience or experience with the point-of-sale system. 

You never know when these skills could come in handy down the road. Broadening your career development is never a bad idea, and is something that you should take advantage of when seasonal opportunities are available.
