Most people work hard all year so that they can spend some money during the holiday season. For those who wants to make money whilst others are spending, holiday season is the best time to earn some extra cash and here’s how you can find the best paying holiday job.
1. Start looking early
Most of your peers will start looking in December, consider starting earlier because employers already know how many ‘more stuff’ they’ll need. It’s better you secure the job now before everyone is on it.
2. Be flexible
Most holiday jobs are in restaurants and retail. From the long working hours to demanding customers. Expect to work a non-traditional schedule, fill gaps in others’ schedules, you might be asked to work on major holidays, such as Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
3. Think about what you want
Ask yourself what you’re looking for. Are you looking for something fun and stress-free or where you can meet a lot of people and not worry too much about responsibility or are you looking for something with more responsibility that will give you valuable skills and experience?
4. Search online
Searching online is just convenient, most jobs allow you to apply online without having to fill out the application by hand. Many job search sites offer seasonal and temporary employment as part of the search so you don’t have to wade through all the full-time employment.
5. Dress the part
Just because it’s holiday season doesn’t mean your dressing when looking for a job has to be relaxed as well. When you show up, make sure you’re dressed the part and employers will take you seriously.
