The air is getting crisper, the leaves are changing colors, and the holiday spirit is starting to fill the air. It's the perfect time to start thinking about those seasonal job opportunities that can make your holiday season even more special. Whether you're looking to earn some extra cash, gain experience, or explore new career paths, seasonal jobs during the holidays can be an incredible opportunity. Who knows where it can lead? 🌟

Here are a few reasons why you should consider applying for holiday seasonal jobs:

1️⃣ Extra Income: The holiday season often brings additional expenses, and a seasonal job can provide the extra income you need to make your celebrations even more memorable. Whether you're saving up for gifts, planning a trip, or simply want to indulge in some holiday treats, a seasonal job can help you achieve your financial goals.

2️⃣ Flexibility: Seasonal jobs typically offer flexible schedules, which is especially valuable during the busy holiday season. You can often find part-time, temporary, or evening/weekend shifts that fit around your existing commitments. This flexibility allows you to balance work, family, and personal obligations with ease.

3️⃣ Skill Development: Seasonal jobs provide an excellent opportunity to learn and develop new skills. Whether you're working in retail, hospitality, customer service, or any other seasonal industry, you'll gain valuable experience that can enhance your resume and lead to future job opportunities. From communication and problem-solving skills to teamwork and adaptability, these roles can help you grow both personally and professionally.

4️⃣ Networking: The connections you make during a seasonal job can open doors to new possibilities. You never know who you might meet – colleagues, customers, or even industry professionals. Networking is a powerful tool, and establishing positive relationships during your seasonal job can lead to future employment opportunities or valuable references.

5️⃣ Exploring Career Paths: Seasonal jobs can serve as a stepping stone to explore different industries and roles. If you're unsure about your long-term career goals, a temporary job during the holidays can provide insights into various fields. It's an excellent chance to try something new, discover your interests, and gain clarity about your future career path.

So, what are you waiting for? Start searching for those exciting holiday seasonal jobs today and embrace the opportunities that come with them! 🎅🏼🎉

🌍✨ The Changing Landscape: From Finding a Job to Not Being Hired ✨🌍

Times are changing, and so is the way we approach employment. In today's competitive world, it's not just about finding a job; it's also about standing out and avoiding the pitfalls that can prevent you from being hired. Let's explore this evolving landscape and uncover some crucial insights. Stay informed and adapt for success! 💼💪

To increase your chances of being hired, focus on developing adaptable skills such as digital literacy, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration. Embrace lifelong learning and stay ahead of the curve. #FutureSkills #AdaptabilityMatters

Effective communication, teamwork, problem-solving, and leadership abilities are highly sought after. Enhance your interpersonal skills to demonstrate your value beyond technical competence. #SoftSkills #InterpersonalEffectiveness

3️⃣ Diversity and Inclusion: Companies are recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion in fostering innovation and growth. Embrace diversity in all its forms and ensure your job applications reflect an inclusive mindset. Highlight experiences that showcase your ability to work in diverse environments. #DiversityAndInclusion #InclusiveWorkplace

4️⃣ Remote Work and Flexibility: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of remote work and flexible arrangements. Showcase your ability to work independently, manage time effectively, and adapt to different work environments. Highlight any previous remote work experience or relevant skills that demonstrate your capability in this area. #RemoteWork #Flexibility

Prepare yourself by familiarizing yourself with video conferencing tools, ensuring a professional background, and practicing your virtual communication skills. Treat virtual interviews with the same level of professionalism as in-person ones. #VirtualInterviews #VideoCommunication

Learn from each experience, seek feedback when possible, and continuously refine your application strategies. Cultivate resilience and maintain a positive mindset throughout your job search journey. #RejectionResilience #StayMotivated

I just think when one is retired, a flexible schedule would be nice. If I wanted an 8 to 5, I would have kept on working. Let us get that 20 hours when we can so we can schedule other things and events going on around us...

I have a new client in the Central NJ area and called by "best" picks from another project I oversaw for years that wrapped up a few months ago. Two of the guy begged me to re-hire them in this new warehousing role claiming they were desperate to get back to work. Rehire #1 has a family and kept telling me he had mouths to feed. Rehire #2 said he was losing money every month on unemployment and tearing through his savings too quickly. New Hire who had been out of warehousing for a while and working as a personal trainer. He was highly motivated to get a regular paycheck and leave personal training behind because it was too rough scrapping for the next paycheck to keep a roof over his head.

They all knew the job was temp to perm. They knew they were going into a new job at the peak season. They knew the job required overtime during the week and every other Saturday. They report to the client Day #1 and the client is upset because all three refused to work extra hours claiming they had other jobs.

Rehire#1 said he lied to the hiring manager and that there was no other job. He just felt the work was too hard and complained they said they were working a 15 hour day. The question Rehire#1 was asked what whether he wanted to stay that late and if not, how late could he stay. I have a meeting with the guy at the client site today because he seems rather lazy and the client is not happy. I explained that even if it is 1 - 2 hours and the Saturday's they will be happy and see him as a team player. When I spoke with him about the Saturday's, the guy refused to work the required Saturday. Career Limiting move. I already know that at the end of the peak season in a couple of weeks he will not be offered the permanent position for the lack of cooperation and appearance of laziness because he will not offer any options to work with the employer.

Rehire#2 lied stating he had no other job. When asked to work overtime he suddenly had a night job and weekend job and refused to work with the client. It seems rehire#2's priority is working (with no degree or education) making You Tube videos thinking he can spiral that into someone with a major NY network. The reality is, I know the industry and know people that have tried/failed. Most video work is temporary for a few days a week with a sporadic income unless you have attended and graduated from an higher education program focusing on film/television. I tried to help the guy and tell him that he should work with the client on the days he is not pursuing his fun gig (I do the same work sporadically myself and have credits in a documentary - so I know what I am talking about). Rehire#2 is a No Show Day 2 and now ineligible for rehire on any project and blacklisted because he didn't stick it out a week and try to be somewhat flexible to honor his commitment. If any references call, the record will now read ineligible for rehire which is the kiss of death in the recruiting/HR world. You might not be able to say exactly what performance expectation was not met, but ineligible for rehire leaves a lot to the imagination. Moral is to never walk of the job on Day 1 putting everyone in a bad place. Be clear you are committed to a job and your going to stick it out.

New Hire - another one who hid the fact he had another job. He lied during the interview stating he was giving up personal training. He tells the new boss he refuses all overtime because he is teaching Yoga at night. He also did not disclose this for employment verification which happens the be a requirement of the employer that we discussed at length. The guy will never be hired because he lied on his application and just used as a temp to get them through the crunch.

Moral of the stories - Be truthful, honor your commitments. If you get an unexpected request (OT with a 15 hour day is a lot) negotiate. Don't be obstinate and say NO and stomp your foot closing the door. From the other side of the table you just made yourself look lazy, disagreeable, etc. Tell them how you can work with them and how late you can stay. Be as flexible as you can and learn everything you can.
