It's getting to be that time of year. Yes, Christmas will be upon us before you know it. Recently, I shared with you a list of ways to earn a little extra cash over the holiday season. But, some people need more than just extra cash to help out during this time of year.
Fortunately, there are quite a few companies that are hiring now for seasonal work that should last through the holidays. I know not everyone is a fan of temp work, but if you're in a bind and you're lucky enough to get hired on, this might help you through it.
So, I did some research this morning and came up with this list of companies that are currently hiring for the 2017 holiday season. I was disappointed that just about all of these are limited to certain states, and I don't think any of them are open outside the US. But, you can always check my job leads page for more companies hiring and my worldwide work at home page if you're located outside the US for more ideas.

The job description for this one doesn't say it's seasonal work, but this company does tend to start hiring not too far out from the holidays each year. Currently they are needing work at home inside sales reps in every state except Texas, California, and Florida. Note this is not cold calling. The job description says every call is inbound. They claim most reps earn on average $15 hourly, but significantly more than that is possible. You can go here to apply.
