Some people want a part time job, or even two part time jobs because it fits their life choices the best. Some people want a full time job but will take a part time job to get a better chance at obtaining a full time job. Whatever your reasons, a part time job can be a great start to a new career.
Many employers want part time staff, especially if they are flexible with when they can work. Fall is often a good time to look for part time positions. With summer drawing to a close you will see retail businesses gearing up for back to school sales, Thanksgiving, Halloween, cold weather, and Christmas. That means a lot of work for stocking and unstocking merchandise and preparing for customer needs. Special events and holidays mean more family and staff socials and parties so restaurant and caterers are often looking for extra serving staff. Think about special events in the city too. If there are special tournaments and events hotels might be looking for part time staff to fill their gaps. Remember, as we get closer to winter every tire vendor will be looking for help changing tires over to winter tires. All of these places will be looking for staff.
Often businesses use their part time staff as a training or even as a test for full time staff. If you get a part time job and never miss a shift, you might be the next full time hire. Think about it and get your resume and cover letters ready to drop off at retail, restaurants, hotels, tire vendors or other places that offer part time employment.
