Were you hired to work a job during peak seasons? Are you looking for a temporary place to stay for a few weeks or months?
Seasonal employees are individuals who are hired to work a position for a short period of time. The holidays are coming up in less than two months and it is one of the busiest times of the year. Even if an employee may be at a job for a short period of time, they might have a heavy workload and what could be a better way to relax than to be in the comfort of your home; or at least your home-away-from home. Let us look at some factors to consider during your search and how to manage a plan for your stay.
Temporary Employee vs. Seasonal Employee
Both play very similar roles in the sense that they are typically only working a part-time position. Additionally, they are hired to work for a few months at a time. Most often these are some of the busiest times of the year.
A temporary employee is most often hired to fill in the position or become the replacement of an absent employee or the gap in a business. These individuals may work for a few months or even for an entire year, depending on how long they will be occupying their role for.
Seasonal employees are typically hired during peak season for a temporary amount of time. Some jobs in particular would be lifeguards during the summer for pools and beaches, ski resort staff during the winter and retail sales associates during the holidays for Christmas and Boxing Day. They help to keep up with the number of demands of a business.

Advantages of Taking a Seasonal Job
Adds to Your Resume
Having an additional job to your resume displays a collection of skills and that is what many businesses look for when it comes to hiring new employees. The more skills attained, the more it shows how well rounded you are and how you are able to fit into a company’s work culture. Another asset to working a seasonal job is a great stepping-stone to getting into the industry and career you want in the future.
Pursuing a Career
Moreover, entry level positions allow you to see many career options. For example, a retail sales associate, seeing the work they do on the daily and considering going into the customer service industry. Ask yourself the question: Is this a path that I would want to take and can I see myself doing this down the road? Observe how different departments operate to help you consider your options.
Becoming a Full-Time Employee
As an employee that has been working there for some time, you build knowledge and skills. Be diligent, on top of your tasks and you will stand out from the rest. If you speak to your manager, you can discuss your future with the company and what steps you should take in order to succeed in your role, or the future career of your choice. This may also lead to you gaining better opportunities and benefits.
