5 companies hiring work from home seasonal workers
Jump to section

Updated December 2021

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. Employers want to be prepared for the upcoming season, which means recruiting and hiring seasonal workers to meet the upcoming demand.

But what roles will be available for workers? And more specifically, what remote roles will be available?

Suppose you're interested in earning some extra cash for the winter holidays but aren't sure seasonal retail work is for you. In that case, a remote seasonal job could be just what you need.

Keep reading to find out which companies are hiring for seasonal remote positions in the upcoming months and how to give yourself the best chance of landing the job.

What are seasonal work-from-home jobs?

You might be wondering what a seasonal remote job looks like. After all, we typically think of retail and hospitality as seasonal jobs.

Simply put, a seasonal work-from-home job is any role that requires you to work from home throughout the holiday period.

For example, working as a customer service rep for a retailer throughout Christmas. This would involve working with customers and dealing with queries and complaints — and doing it all from home.

Because of the pandemic, remote work has become more popular. In fact, 67% of businesses offer flexible work arrangements.

So we expect more seasonal remote jobs to crop up this year. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, keep reading to find out more about the roles available.

Why should I work a seasonal job?

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of working a remote seasonal job.

Get some extra cash over the holidays

It’s no secret that the holiday season takes its toll on our bank accounts. We’re buying gifts for friends and family, heading out for Christmas parties and events, and traveling to see family.

So if you’re struggling to get your head around how you’ll fund your holiday season, a seasonal job could be just what you need.

Having a little extra income over the holidays may help alleviate some financial stress and allow you to enjoy your time.

Close the gap on your resume

If you’re in between jobs, seasonal work can help you close the gap on your resume. This will prevent future employers from querying why you weren’t working, which can sometimes put them off hiring you altogether.

So get a seasonal job to close the gap between no work and permanent employment. You’ll be glad you did when you’re applying for another job.

Have the potential to extend to a permanent role

Often, workers who join as seasonal employees become part of the team permanently when their contract is over.

And due to employer shortages this year, many companies are planning to keep seasonal workers on board.

Target says:

“When the holidays are over, many of those team members will have the opportunity to stay on board.”

So chances are, if you get hired as a seasonal employee, you might be asked to stick around for the long haul. There’s no guarantee, but if you work hard and show you’re dedicated, there’s a chance it could turn into a permanent position.

Which companies are offering holiday work-from-home jobs?

Now, let’s take a look at some of the companies offering remote holiday jobs this season.

How to get hired for a seasonal remote job in 2022

We’ve covered some of the companies that are hiring remote seasonal employees this year. Now, let’s look at how you can give yourself the best chance of getting hired.

1. Apply early

On average, each job offer attracts 250 resumes. That’s a lot of applications for an employer to sift through.

To get ahead of the competition and give yourself the best chance of being hired, make sure to apply for seasonal jobs as soon as you can. The earlier you can get your application in, the more likely it is to be reviewed by the employer.

So when exactly should you be looking for seasonal jobs?

Companies tend to advertise for seasonal jobs at least a month before the holiday season hits. This means you should be looking for seasonal work between October and November. If you leave it too late, chances are the position will already be filled.

2. Update your resume

In addition to getting your application in early, you also need to make sure your resume is up-to-date and that it stands out from the crowd. So spend some time reviewing your most recent resume and updating it with any information you’re missing.

Make sure the information is clearly displayed, and think about what the employer will want to see from your resume. This should help you visualize the best way to structure your resume and what information to include.

You can look at some of our tips to customize your resume. Adding new additions and customizations to your resume is another great way to stand out from the competition and catch the hiring manager’s eye.

If you’re not sure where to start with your resume or haven’t made one before, look at the Jobcase resume generator.

All you have to do is sign up to Jobcase, fill in all your information, and select the ‘generate resume’ button on your profile page.

3. Personalize your cover letter

Before an employer sees your resume, they’ll probably see your cover letter. This is a single-page document addressed to the employer outlining why you’re applying for the job and what skills make you right for the position. It’s essentially an introduction to your application.

As the first thing they see, you must get the cover letter right — especially when you’re competing with many other applicants.

Your cover letter should be personalized to each company you apply to, even if you’re applying for a seasonal job. So spend some time researching the business so that you can tailor your cover letter accordingly.

4. Express long-term interest

With more employers considering permanent employment after seasonal contracts end, it’s a good idea to show your interest ahead of time. That way, if they’re impressed with your work, they’re more likely to talk to you about a permanent position.

So when you’re writing your cover letter, make sure to include a sentence that outlines your interest and availability for a permanent position. There’s no guarantee that it’ll happen, but it shows that you're serious about the role.

Of course, this is only applicable if you’re interested in a permanent role. If not, that’s not a problem. The role is seasonal, so you won’t be at a disadvantage if you don’t want a permanent position.
