Tis the season.....
For all of us to reach into our hard earned saving accounts and spend it all on family and friends! The Holidays are just not the same anymore. Remember, when you were a kid and had no money and you created a homemade gift with whatever was laying around the house, or better yet the Christmas ornament you made in grade school. Well that time has changed and gifts got a little pricier! Video game systems, MP3, and more is what the kids are asking for today. But how are you going to afford all the new trends this holiday season?
There are a lot of options, but the first one that comes to my head in finding a seasonal full or part-time job. A lot of retailer have additional opening to fill during this time. According to About.com, "Christmas is the busiest retail season of the year. Between 25% and 50% of total annual retail sales take place during the holidays and retail employers usually increase their workforce by at least 4% just for the holiday gift-buying rush."
Besides just the retail section of our economy there are other occupations that are seasonal as well. Living in the high country of Colorado we also have the benefits of working on the slopes for the winter.
So the next time you stop by a department store or purchase a lift ticket, you may want to learn how you can expand your wallet this holiday season!
