The spending season is quickly approaching and chances are your holiday shopping lists are getting longer and longer and the wallet? That is getting smaller and smaller. Is a part-time, seasaonal job right for you? Can you even find one this year?
According to AOL Jobs, you can! It is predicted that holiday retail payrolls will increase to 700,000 by the end of the year, a 40,000 job increase over last year. Not surprising since holiday spending is expected to increase by 2.8 percent.
Not sure you want to put in the extra hours? Keep in mind the gig is only temporary, and if you find the right job, the employee discount can help you save even more this season.
