Today is Halloween. I was thinking about the change of seasons again and seasonal jobs. There is nothing spooky about looking for a seasonal job. One of our vocational counselors took a walk through the local mall and found out that almost every retail store was hiring seasonal employees starting right away. In fact she was even offered a couple of jobs on the spot. Employers often use seasonal employment as a testing ground for new full time employees. If you do well you could be the next full time hire. Think about businesses that are seasonal and contact them early.
Christmas is busy in retail stores
Winter is busy for garages and tires stores
Spring is busy for yard and garden stores
Summer is busy in parks and golf courses
Think ahead and get your applications out for spooktacular job opportunities. "Cowboy" Robert - Vocational Counselor
It's been a few weeks...
It's been a few weeks since I last posted to the blog. I haven't given up on the blog, I've just been working on other things to help people find work. This morning I was planning to do an update and I have to say it has been hard to get started. When you are away from something for awhile it is sometimes hard to get started again. It is like that when you are looking for work. Sometime a person will drop off five applications and sit and wait. They may wait and wait, then they will apply for two more jobs and sit and wait. But soon they may get discouraged and quit applying. It becomes easy to stop doing something when you haven't done it for awhile. The solution is make finding a job your job. Apply daily, drop off resumes, make some phone calls, don't sit and wait. Keep letting Prince Albert know you are looking for work. If you keep looking, you are going to find something.
