Getting a seasonal job--get cracking
Walmart, Target, Macy's and many others are already hiring.
Identify the type of place you would like to work--a restaurant, dept store, small store, whatever. What is your expertise--clothes, sporting goods, electronics...decide.
Check first with places you already shop. You may already know the people and stock--and can use the discounts.
Always be personable, even if just asking for an application or dropping off a resume. Dress neatly. Smile.
Emphasize your customer service skills--people are stressed at holiday time.
You may be asked to work horrible or inconvenient hours. If this is a second job, make sure they know when you can work. If this is your only job--suck it up.
This is why they call it work.
