Ok, ok…we know it’s a bit early to be talking about the holidays. But, if you’ve been into your favorite retailers recently, you’ll notice that most have already started the yearly transition into the holiday madness. While we are not quite ready to jump in to that ourselves, we did find a list of national retailers who plan large-scale hiring for the holiday season. In fact, a number of these companies have already started the hiring process. For those looking for work, we know that this type of temporary role may not be what you have in mind, but we wanted to share the list for those who are looking for any opportunities they can find. It is also our understanding that some of these temporary holiday positions can turn into longer term employment for the right people in the right companies. The sheer number of jobs is mind-boggling. We hope that those who are seeking employment (or know someone who is) will find this list useful.
