The holidays are approaching, and around this time, people are trying their hardest to collect enough money to have Thanksgiving dinner or buy their family Christmas presents. While this is the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be the busiest for many businesses. Some businesses find that they urgently need positions filled, but others may have hiring on hold. Here are 5 tips for job searching during the holidays!
  1. Consider Temporary Work

Temporary jobs are a great way to make quick and easy money. Most of the time, they do not even require experience. Many places are looking for seasonal help such as retail stores, production, warehouse, and manufacturing. TPI Staffing Service opens temporary jobs quite often, make sure you are registered with us, and ask about temporary work opportunities! No matter what your temporary job may be, it is something that you can put on your resume as experience, and who knows, maybe a temporary job could turn into something permanent!
  1. Use Your Free Time

If you are already employed with a company, but there is a slow down in production, use this time wisely. Many people take a break from job searching during the holidays, take advantage of the lack of competition. Update your resume, expand your network, or reach out to those that are already in your network. On a day off, visit a job fair! Stay productive while things are slow.
  1. Be patient

More people take their vacation during the holiday season, and it can be hard to schedule interviews. Companies can be very busy during the holiday season, as they may be rushing to get  things done before the year is over. It is important to be patient because stressing about these things can keep you from enjoying this time with your family. Do not lose hope if an employer is not reaching out to you. They may just be busy.

Don’t loose sight of what really matters during the holidays, family. Don’t let your job search get in the way of spending quality time with your loved ones. TPI Staffing Service wants to help you find work for the holidays, so make sure you are registered and checking in with us from time to time!
