Tis the Season to Get Hired! (Infographic)

Compiling information from Challenger, Gray & Christmas, and Forbes, Career Glider reveals that the holiday season is actually the best time to get hired. Although mostly part-time and retail positions are available between Thanksgiving and Christmas, they offer the opportunity to gain valuable experience and transition into a full-time position.

So, just what are the main points on holiday season hiring?

  • Macy’s accounts for the most seasonal hires in the US than any other company at a staggering 83,000 hires
  • 10,000 seasonal employees at USPS help send 420 million packages over the holiday season
  • Temporary workers are hired to help cope with the holiday demand – Mall Santas earn an average $24 an hour!
  • Hobby, Toy & Game Stores have the most holiday hires with a 34.10% increase, followed by Clothing & Accessories Stores (13.36% increase) and Department Stores (12.10% increase)
  • The top 3 seasonal positions outside of retail are marketing coordinators, seasonal recruiters and production designers
