How to Find Holiday Jobs

You can also find your own clients among neighbors. Research the going rates among well-established service providers and price yourself competitively.

Four Final Tips

No matter what you're looking for, the key is to start looking now. Don't wait until Thanksgiving. Given the competition, don't delay your search.

Be willing to work all shifts since it'll increase your chances of being selected.

Apply online and in person. That one-two punch ensures that you're covering all your bases. Don't wait for your resume to be found online; do both.

And finally, know the product. Most seasonal jobs require people who need very little training.

You'll be thrown in with little ramp-up time, so establishing that you have solid customer skills and that you understand the company's products and services will set you apart from other applicants.
