With the holiday shopping rush coming up rapidly, employers are doing anything they can to hire people. The National Retail Federation is predicting at least 730,000 additional retail workers this holiday season. Delivery companies like FedEx and UPS need extra delivery drivers to move millions of packages. Other businesses are getting ready for the holiday boom and that means now is the time to get hired.
A cool post by the Wall Street Journal, points out that many companies are avoiding traditional seasonal hiring methods and are advertising jobs in unique ways like social media. Companies like Beverages and More Inc. has posted 1000 jobs on social media. Crate & Barrel is blasting out job listings via Twitter. The Container Store is sending out emails and posting on LinkedIn and Facebook. If you’re online, visit your favorite retailer’s social media pages to see if you can find your next job.
It’s always safe to stick to the traditional job search methods too. Visit the job board to check out job listings from these companies that are on a hiring spree in November:
