How to search for seasonal jobs

(WTNH)—Believe it or not, this is the time to be looking for seasonal jobs. Howard Schwartz, of the Better Business Bureau Serving Connecticut, says many folks may wait too long and miss changes and not get the job(s) they want.

Market forces based on last year’s sales strategy, shopping patterns and economists’ predictions may offer a clue about hiring. Looking early for opportunities whether jobs are posted or not, offer access to key people in a way that can get you in ahead of the crowd.

Take a proactive step at a desired place of employment and ask to meet the manager.

Some places with high demand for seasonal help:

  • Florists
  • Bakeries
  • Delivery services
