It’s Holiday Hiring Time Again!

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

No, it’s not even Halloween yet, but data is emerging about a small recovery to the job market associated with holiday hiring in retail, seasonal and logistic roles.  Check out recent pieces in the LA Times and USA Today. Though there is some optimism, holiday hiring won’t pick up to pre-recession levels anytime soon, and there is some concern that both holiday sales and temporary hires won’t pick up much, if at all, particularly in more depressed areas of the US.

By the way, if you’re seeking seasonal work here in Rocket-Hire’s home state of Louisiana, there are many positions still available to help clean up the gulf in the aftermath of the BP oil spill.
