As many job opportunities as there are ever-changing leaves
Fall is about to begin, and with the change in weather comes plenty of seasonal jobs. From pumpkin patches to holiday drivers, there’s something for everyone. Here are a few opportunities to consider.
The holiday season starts earlier and earlier every year, and delivery services like UPS and Amazon need drivers to satisfy the demand. Hiring starts way before the holidays roll around, so start looking for these types of jobs early on.
Festival/State Fair/Holiday Event Employee
Whether it’s dipping corn dogs at the state fair, tending the pumpkin patch, or directing traffic at the annual chili cookoff, there are numerous seasonal event positions in the fall. Search the papers in your area to view upcoming events—you never know where a job could come from.
People travel for the holidays, which means that hotels, resorts, and theme parks can be bustling. Jobs vary, from retail and hospitality to food preparation and helping with experiences (ski instructor, surfing instructor, scuba diving instructor, etc.).
Fall Harvest Helper
Many farmers spend the bulk of this season harvesting crops, so agricultural positions abound. Much of this involves standing for long periods of time and being able to do basic manual labor—dumping and loading trucks, sweeping dump pits, general cleaning, etc.
The increased focus on shopping and family activities this time of year creates an increase in customer service-related positions. This includes everything from cashiers to janitors to waitstaff positions.
If you’re still in college or looking to get back to basics, many companies and organizations offer internships in the fall. These can include basically anything, from marketing to accounting to finance and more.
