This year, bring some more cheer and extra spending money to your holidays by taking on a seasonal position. SEEK Careers and Staffing has many opportunities available right now for holiday work in a variety of industries. Companies are still hiring for the holidays and offer several different shifts and flexible hours to work around your primary job. Seasonal employment offers more than just an extra paycheck. Here are some more reasons to reign in some holiday cash:
1. Gain experience
Work in a field you haven’t before. Learn some new skills and apply them. Expand your horizons and broaden your knowledge base. Basically, you will get the chance to do things you’ve never done before, which will help you with #2.
2. Improve your resume
All of these new skills and experience will only serve to enhance your current resume. It will also illustrate your industry and committed work ethic to any potential employer.
You will be meeting new people and forming networks you otherwise never would have. Use it to your advantage!
4. Get your foot in the door
If you have been wanting to work for a particular company and have not been able to get a foot in the door throughout the year, now is the time. Many holiday workers will be offered a chance to stay on full time based on their performance. This is your chance!
5. Learn more about a company first
If this is a company in which you have been interested, now is a good time to get a feel for the company with no obligation. Go work for them. Find out what the company culture feels like and see if you think it is a good long-term fit for you.
6. Practice interviewing
This is a great time to hone your interviewing skills. There really is no risk. Go ahead. Make a mistake. Ask for feedback. See where it is you’re succeeding, where you need improvement, and then make the necessary adjustments.
7. You can walk away/you don’t have to stay
If you find that you’re not enjoying your newfound position, you can leave without risking your main source of income and without feeling like you have let the company down.
These are just some of the reasons to consider a temporary seasonal position. Find something that works for you and works around your schedule and then go for it!
