Shopping for A Job: Use Cyber Monday to Kickstart Your Career

words-1797662_640Thanksgiving has passed, Black Friday is now only a memory, and today we are in the thick of Cyber Monday.  All of the celebrating and shopping is fun for many people here in Polk County, but for those who are currently unemployed, or those who are underemployed, this time of year can be difficult as bills have to be hashed out in addition to holiday purchases and extra expenses.

Cyber Monday is well-known for being the best time to grab a great deal on a new television, a slick new phone, or even a new slow-cooker, but did you know it can also be a great time to shop for a new job?  With the Christmas season quickly approaching, employers throughout Central Florida will be looking to fill openings before the new tax year begins in January, and they are usually in favor of making all staffing changes before their own Christmas vacation hits.  That means this is the perfect time for you to get your application turned in and your resume in their hands!

Don’t be fooled into thinking that holiday openings are only in retail!  Companies and businesses of ALL kinds look for new hires year-round, but really push to fill those spots at this time.  Warehouses (and related industrial businesses) tend to be busy at this time of year, and those in the accounting and financial industry are usually wrapping up end-of-the-year paperwork to prepare for tax season starting in February.  These jobs and more will be seeing out fresh employees for the coming year and YOU could be the perfect fit.

PHR Staffing Solutions works with businesses throughout the greater Lakeland area, and we are continually listing new openings.  Instead of spending your Cyber Monday shopping for things you don’t need, take your time going over our page (found here) of our current openings, and spend your afternoon filling out the needed applications.  Having your loved one open a new gadget on Christmas might be nice, but telling them you finally found a new (or better) job?  THAT is a gift they will be excited about.  If you want to learn more about employment through PHR, or if you have questions about a specific position, call or visit our offices located in Winter Haven, Lakeland, or Lake Wales.

Get hired this holiday season with PHR Staffing Solutions!
