From Seasonal to Full-Time
The holidays bring much more than just presents, good food and cold weather. They offer job seekers part-time opportunities that could potentially become full-time positions after the holiday season. Retail is definitely the way to go if you want to put your entrepreneurial spirit to work this season.

Below you will find top retailers that are currently hiring for both part-time and full-time positions:

Mattress Firm



Toys R Us

Follow the steps below to turn that part-time job into full-time:

·         Become an asset to the organization. Offer all your clients exceptional customer service by taking the initiative to ask them if they need assistance before they approach you.  In addition, become familiar with all the products you’re selling in order to be seen as an expert at that store.
·         Let your manager know of your desire to work with them and the organization full-time, without being too pushy or bringing it up frequently.
·         Volunteer for special projects. If your manager requests help on projects, volunteer to help in order to show your interest in the company and in your position.
·         Show your enthusiasm. A great attitude will go a long way and will show others that you are fun to work with and pleasant with customers.

In conclusion, I would like to leave you with an optimistic statistic: 39% of employers that are hiring seasonal help plan to transition employees to full-time*. In order to be part of this statistic follow the suggestions above and maintain a positive attitude this season!

Happy Holidays!
