Holiday Hiring

In the OC Register I read an article that made me optimistic about job seekers and what I’ve been telling my own kids and their friends — it’s never too early to start looking for a job.

As we approach the holiday season, retailers everywhere are gearing up for the start of holiday hiring. Employment experts believe that job seekers should start applying now even though retailers may delay hiring until the later months (once they see an increase in consumer demand).  Seasonal workers should start applying early, since there will be an increase in applicants. 

According to John Challenger, chief executive of the out-placement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc., which tracks employment, also thinks things may be improving on the retail front. He also thinks the best bets for job opportunities will be in the large retailers such as: Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buys, Barnes & Nobles, as well as shippers like UPS and Fed-Ex. 

Hopefully, we will have a more promising and stronger selling season.

And thank you for making me Your Orange County Real Estate Connection.
