If you are looking for part-time work this holiday season, you should plan to apply for multiple positions, have a good clean résumé, and show you can be flexible with your schedule.
Some of her other suggestions:
•Make sure your résumé highlights relevant information, such as jobs similar to the one you are applying for.
•In your application, be prepared to talk about your successes, even if it is something as simple as why you are someone's favorite baby sitter.
•Don't be afraid of old-fashioned networking, asking friends and family to help if they can.
•Don't limit yourself to retail opportunities. Restaurants increase staffing during the holidays, as do caterers, distribution companies, and shippers, she says.
