If you're hoping to snag a holiday job, act quickly. Most signs point to retailers and other seasonal employers doing the bulk of their hiring this month. Karin Caifa has insight and tips on how to turn a temporary job permanent, in today's Consumer Watch. CareerBuilder recently asked holiday hiring managers about which attributes help applicants land holiday jobs, and which qualities might earn a seasonal employee, a permanent position. Many employers who hire seasonal staff said they go with who they know, re-hiring the same people for those temporary positions each year. For example, people who know a store's Black Friday drill. For those looking to break in, apply early. Many employers stop taking applications by the end of October. If you're called in for an interview, be prepared, know about the company's products. Don't ask about an employee discount. It can be a turnoff to employers who think applicants are more interested in saving money on their holidy shopping, rather than helping customers with theirs. And, be mindful of your interview wardrobe. Showing up sporting merchandise of a retailers' competitor can also be a turnoff. Once on the job, be proactive. If it's retail, approach customers, rather than waiting for them to come to you. If it's shipping or antoher hot holiday area, ask for extra projects. And, if it's your intent to turn a holiday job into a full-time gig, make it known early.
