Fall is Here and So is Holiday Hiring Time

Fall has finally arrived. For job seekers this means much more than enjoying a pumpkin spice latte. It means seasonal jobs are available.

Most big box retailers begin searching for, and hiring, holiday help in September and October. The best part, many of these temporary positions can turn into fulltime jobs for employers who use the holiday season to put forth their best effort and shine.

Hiring Heroes is hosting two major hiring fairs, specifically for military spouses in October. They are:

Oct. 18

Warwick, R.I.


Oct. 26

Joint Base McGuire-Dix Lakehurst, N.J.


In November, you can visit more Hiring Heroes job fairs in these locations:

Nov. 5

Fort Belvoir, Va.


Nov. 7

Oakland, Calif.


Nov. 9

Colorado Springs, Co.


These events fill quickly so be sure to click on the link and register ahead of time.


Individual retailers will also host job fairs in October to fill those holiday job slots. Show up at one of the retailers below on their designated job fair days to fill out an application and do an on-the-spot interview. Come dressed for the part and bring a copy of your resume.
