WHY 'CHRISTMAS IN JULY' SHOULD TRIGGER YOUR HOLIDAY JOB SEARCH

Christmas in July is a trendy sale campaign used by many  national brands, but it's also a good time to start thinking about holiday employment. Even though fall isn't here just yet, many employers are already looking ahead.


"Most seasonal hiring starts in September or October for the holiday season," explains John Korusek of Chesterfield Resource Workforce Center. "But those home from college and kids out of school, now is the best time to check with those retailers. As you're out, ask those employers what the best time to find employment is."
