Whether you’ve had trouble finding a job lately or need a second job to pay for holiday presents, looking for a temporary position in the winter is a good idea. That’s because there are many industries that have openings around the holidays, giving you a chance to make some extra money in the winter. If you’re interested in finding a work in the next few months, here’s where to look.
Everyone increases their spending around this time of year as the holidays approach, and that means stores are busier than ever. They’ll need additional cashiers, salespeople, stockers and gift wrappers to handle all the extra shoppers. So consider applying at stores that sell electronics, clothing, home décor, toys and other products that are likely to be extra popular at Christmas. In many cases, working a temporary retail job is a great way to get your foot in the door if you want permanent work in the retail industry. Just do your best to stand out as reliable and hardworking if you want a chance of making your seasonal position permanent. Search for retail jobs in your area now.
With shoppers buying so many more products for the holidays, it makes sense that truck drivers are often busier than usual during the winter. That’s why it’s a good time to apply for a truck driving job. After all, everything from electronics to food is in higher demand during this season. If you don’t want to drive cross-country, consider more local driving jobs, as some major stores and websites hire people to deliver packages from their warehouse to nearby homes.

This is especially the case if you live in an area with a mild winter and a hot summer — such as Arizona and Southern California — since this may be the best time to get construction done. But even if your area gets snow in the winter, there are still plenty of construction positions that work through the entire year no matter the temperature outside.
