No--not permanent Santa


Sarah E. Needleman, WSJ, Nov 10, 2009, says holiday hires can get a full-time gig. The Christmas thing can be an icebreaker.

In a small percentage of cases, the temp can even come out from behind the cash register into HR or finance,

One woman was a gift-wrapper in HS, went back to Macy’s as a human resources manager and is still there.

You need to be on the inside, she says, to see what’s available. Look at the seasonal job as an audition.

Employers like to recruit from within.

No matter what your job, be punctual, take on extra duties, keep checking the bulletin board or website.

And tell you you sure would like to stay on. Don't keep it a secret.
