With the holiday season upon us, employers are scrambling to find seasonal workers to bolster their numbers. If a recent study by Adobe is any indication, employers have good reason to increase their workforces. By combining the results of more than 1 trillion visits to U.S. retail sites and a survey of more than 1,000 consumers, Adobe predicts holiday retail shopping will grow by 10% in 2021. This, after holiday sales soared by 33% last year.
According to FlexJobs, these 16 companies are going all out to find employees. While many of these jobs are strictly seasonal, others look as though they have the potential to be permanent.
Based on jobs each business has posted through FlexJobs in the past, companies offer a variety of positions, some of which you may find surprising. For example, don’t assume that a tax preparation company is looking only for tax preparers. It may also need to fill customer service, administrative, legal, fraud, web design, writing, and editing positions.
The majority of these roles are 100% remote, meaning you can carry out your duties from home, a local coffee shop, on an island (provided there’s internet service), or anywhere that strikes your fancy. A few — like chocolatiers — are required to work on the premises. In any case, the right job could represent money in your bank account this holiday season and a chance to meet some interesting people.
Here, we’ll offer a brief overview of what each company does and give you an idea of the types of positions they have sought to fill in the past.
