Seasonal Jobs

As the seasons change, so do opportunities for employment.

There are certain times of the year that are very important to businesses. Perhaps the most well known time of the year for businesses is the holiday season which includes Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and New Years. But aside from the holidays, there are other seasonal events that take place during the course of a year that are just as important.

As the seasons change, so do employment opportunities. Different times of the year are the peak earning times for certain businesses and this makes it necessary for them to boost their staff of workers. But if they can't afford to hire full time or permanent part time employees, they hire seasonal workers.

In many cases, increased seasonal productivity is what many businesses rely on to stay afloat for the rest of the year. If they do well during peak times of the year, they may be able to hire additional full time or permanent part time employees.

Although seasonal work is for short periods throughout the year, sometimes for just two or three months, it is a crucial part of the economy. It presents opportunities for growth in businesses as well as for individual income, and it is a source for increased tax revenue for local, state, and federal government.

Most people don't think of seasonal jobs in terms of the overall health and welfare of the economy, but if you look at the number of industries that depend on seasonal workers, you will see the real picture. You will come to appreciate just how much of an impact seasonal jobs and seasonal workers have on the way you live.

Below is a short list of seasonal jobs:

1. Winter recreational businesses: These businesses offer skiing, snow boarding, and other snow related activities and lessons that contribute to seasonal jobs during the winter months.

2. Fishing and seafood processing: Fish, such as herring, salmon, mackerel, tuna, etc., and certain species of crab, shrimp, and lobster are caught only during certain times of the year. Seafood industries offer many seasonal job opportunities.

3. Christmas and the holiday season: Many stores offer seasonal employment to help accommodate the millions of people who shop and spend during the holidays. The holiday season is one of the most lucrative for many different types of businesses.

4. Planting season: Crops have to be planted in the spring so farmers and orchard owners hire workers to bed, seed, and plant crops for fall and winter harvest.

5. Harvesting season: Crops such as corn, wheat, barley, peanuts, peas, beans, tomatoes, greens, strawberries, onions, broccoli, melons, and other vegetables have to be harvested at a time when they are at their best for canning and processing. This is also true for apples, pears, grapes, peaches, plums, blue berries, black berries and other fruits and berries. Seasonal work at harvest time is big business.

6. Income tax preparation: Many accounting firms and income tax preparation companies hire tax consultants for a few months out of the year.

7. Summer work: Many clothing stores and restaurants hire for the summer because of the increased purchasing activity from kids who are out of school for the summer. This is especially true at the end of the summer when students are preparing to go back to school.

There are many other seasonal job opportunities for those who need to make extra money at different times during the year.
