Job search and seasonal work tips

Use key words like 'seasonal' or 'holiday' in your Jobcase job search. Including common seasonal job functions, like 'retail', 'warehouse', and 'customer service' may also help. You can also apply directly on the company’s website.

Thinking about staying on past the holidays? Learn the job you’re hired to do — do it well! — and evaluate if the job and company is a right fit for you. If you enjoy it, talk to your managers and express your interest in staying permanently. Showing that you have an interest in transitioning to a permanent role shows that you have initiative and drive — two important qualities of successful employees.
