Seasonal jobs: A last chance for employment in 2020
Jump to section

If you’re still looking for work and want to get hired before the end of this year, seasonal hiring could be your last chance to get a paying job in 2020. Many employers are slowing down hiring in preparation for the holiday season, however seasonal jobs are in their last hiring push to get ready for the boom of customers and online orders that are about to come their way.

So if you want to get back on payroll before the New Year, look into what we’ve been writing on seasonal work for all the insight and opportunities you need to land your seasonal job today.

What seasonal jobs are available?

You may be thinking of one picture of what a seasonal retail job looks like, but the reality is that there are seasonal retail jobs available for many job types and environments. Wherever you feel most comfortable working, there’s likely a job to suit your needs.

In retail stores

This job is likely the most well-known type of seasonal job hiring now, and the one you’ll have heard the most about. Retail stores need more retail workers to help with the holiday shopping boom that hits all stores during the colder months. If you have experience in retail or would feel most comfortable in that environment, you’re likely to feel comfortable with this type of job.

In warehouses

Perhaps an even bigger wave of online orders are anticipated to hit retailers as consumers avoid crowded stores this year. In preparation, many warehouses are stocking up on workers so the seasonal online spending boom can be sufficiently supported. Workers would be expected to help store stock, assemble orders, and prepare them for delivery to consumers.

On the road

Much like warehouse workers, delivery drivers and workers will be needed to help with the explosion of online orders set to happen around the holiday season. Whether you’d be working for a dedicated delivery company like FedEx or working directly with a retailer like Amazon or Walmart, your main job would be to pick up orders and deliver packages to consumers throughout your day. If you like being out and about during the day, this job will likely be a great fit for you.

In your home

Yes, you can get a remote seasonal job! With all of the incoming online orders expected over the next few months, customers are likely to need help with issues they may run into with their orders or deliveries. Remote customer service jobs are booming right now as retailers attempt to anticipate the higher volume of calls about order issues. If you’re keen to work from the comfort of your home you’re likely to enjoy the opportunity to be a remote customer service agent through the winter.

What if I don’t want a seasonal job?

If any of these aren’t striking you as the right job for you, there could be another option. Gig jobs are always hiring and there are a number of options available to explore. These side hustle jobs are in high demand right now, and if you have the need for income, they can help you bring in extra cash fairly quickly.

No matter what you decide, missing the boat on seasonal jobs doesn’t mean you won’t find something for you soon. Keep looking for work, stay safe and be well!
