Those 600,000 Holiday Jobs: 40 Percent Could Become Permanent

Of the 600,000 hired for the holiday season, about 40 percent could receive permanent offers from employers, reports ABC News. That’s what a recent survey by CareerBuilder.com found.

Beulah Hargrove at J.C. Penney’s store in Manhattan has been presented with such an offer. The crowds flooding the stores and shopping online during Black Friday weekend signal that Hargrove won’t be atypical in having temporary work turn into the permanent kind.
There’s more. Employers aren’t holding it against job applicants that they are supposedly ‘overqualified.’ In fact, employers see this unusual background for retail jobs or online work as a plus.
No, it’s not too late to apply. The demand is still there. Roam shopping centers for signs saying ‘hiring’ on store windows, or better yet, just go into the stores and ask to speak to the manager. Pitch yourself, handing over your resume. Also check online job boards as well as the companies’ websites. You may be back to work sooner than you expected.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans have taken on temporary jobs this holiday season, as employers gain confidence in the signs of stronger consumer demand. And for some of the workers, the temporary positions are turning into the one thing they want most this Christmas:
“Retailers are feeling pretty confident right now,” said Marshall Cohen, chief retail analyst with the NPD Group. “They’ve got their swagger going.”
Watch “World News With Diane Sawyer” weeknights on ABC.
All told, U.S. companies will hire an estimated 600,000 temporary workers this holiday season, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. That’s more workers added to the holiday payrolls than in the past three years.
Demand is so high for extra help that Amazon.com, the world’s largest online retail, has already hired 15,000 temporary workers. It’s so many extra employees that the company has even started camps in places such as Kentucky where employees can park their RVs to sleep between 10-hour shifts. They’ll work until Christmas Eve for $10 an hour.
Toys R Us is also jumping on the trend, hiring 45,000 temporary employees, a 30 percent increase from last year. UPS is hiring 50,000 extra workers.

Applicant Pool for Holiday Jobs Overqualified

The people who apply for the jobs are often overqualified, but store managers are delighted to have them.
“They’re a lot more dependable, better quality, absolutely,” said Joe Cardamone, a store manager at a J.C. Penney’s in Manhattan. “They want to work and they need to work, so it’s to our advantage to have that kind of quality out there right now.”

More Seasonal Temp Jobs May Become Permanent

There are also some indications that more of the temporary positions could become permanent. Forty percent of employers with seasonal workers this fall plan on offering permanent jobs, up from last year, according to a survey by CareerBuilder.
“[Retailers] have been profitable almost every month throughout the year,”analyst Cohen said. “That means they’re going to look to continue to ride that wave and keep some of these temporary employees that are showing some good promise and keep them on for a longer period of time.”

More Temporary Jobs Become Permanent

That’s the case for Beulah Hargrove. She accepted a holiday job at a New York J.C. Penney’s store and has already been asked to stay on after Christmas Eve.
“I’ll be working here after the holidays, which I’m very proud of,” she said. “It’s really hard to get a job now.”

Holiday Hot Jobs: 6 Companies Hiring 500,000+ in 2010

If you’re still thinking about scoring a holiday job, go for it. The holiday forecast from recruiting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas is that some retailers may play it safe and delay some of their hiring until late in the season. They also forecast that holiday hiring will be better this year than last year, when more than 500,000 workers found seasonal work.
With the economy picking up, a seasonal job can get your foot in the door for permanent work. Retailers say they definitely keep an eye out for outstanding seasonal hires to keep on after the holidays.
Here’s a look at some of the companies with the biggest hiring plans for holiday 2010, and the type of workers they’re hiring:
1. Macy’s (hiring 65,000)
The department-store giant is hiring an army of seasonal in-store sales associates ($9.76), as well as call-center customer-service representatives ($13.03) and warehouse workers ($12.86) for its distribution centers and Macys.com’s product warehouses.

2. UPS (hiring 50,000)
All those packages we order online have to get delivered, and UPS gears up to handle the volume spike, says corporate workforce planning manager Matthew Lavery. The most common job they hire for is driver’s helper, which requires heavy lifting. UPS also hires drivers ($14.13) and package handlers at their distribution centers. As with all the warehouse jobs mentioned here, warehouse workers for UPS need to be able to lift 75 pounds. No matter where you live, you can probably find a package center near you – Big Brown has more than 1,000 locations nationwide.
“We can train people,” says Lavery. “You need a desire to be successful, to come to work every day – basic skills. We train you on the handheld computer we use for deliveries.”

3. Toys “R” Us (hiring 45,000)
The toy retailer is doubling its work force, in part because it’s opening 600 pop-up ministores inside shopping malls this holiday season. Spokeswoman Linda DeNotaris says sales associates should be “hard-working, reliable individuals who enjoy working as part of a team and want to help us achieve our goal of providing memorable store experiences.” She adds, “Many of our seasonal employees remain with us after the holiday season has come and gone.”

4. Best Buy (hiring 29,000)
If you love tech gadgets, Best Buy could be a fun place to work this holiday season. Cleveland-based portable electronics supervisor Elisha Unger says roles include cashiers ($8.48) and three categories of customer-service specialists – in home theater, portable electronics, and “counter intelligence agent,” better known as the Geek Squad’s computer-repair staff. Repair workers usually have prior experience in computer repair, and take an evaluation test 90 days into their employment, Unger notes.

5. Amazon.com (hiring 10,000+)
With Amazon, geography is key, as their jobs are found only where the online retailer has product warehouses – that’s Indiana, Kentucky, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Arizona. Aside from seasonal warehouse work, which is mostly done hiring now, Amazon spokeswoman Michele Glisson says the ecommerce giant is currently making permanent hires for customer service managers ($16.10) and customer service operations managers at customer service centers in Kennewick, Wash.; Huntington, W.V., and Grand Forks, N.D.

6. Nordstrom (doesn’t disclose hiring figure)
The department-store chain is known for its customer service, and pays slightly above industry averages for top-flight sales associates. While they aren’t saying how many hires they’re making, spokesman Colin Johnson says hiring is up this year compared with last holiday time. The company gets a jump on the competition by starting to hire its seasonal sales associates back in September for its half-yearly sale. Prior experience isn’t as important as enthusiasm for making customers happy.

11 Ways to Find Women-Friendly Employers

Trying to find a company that will meet your changing needs as a woman? According to experts, you need to investigate how the organization supports its workers, particularly its female workforce.

Jan Shubert, associate director for Babson College’s Center for Women in Leadership, suggests you investigate “anything that helps you get a picture of how they look at and value women.”

Shubert and other experts say the clearest picture will emerge as you research corporate culture, company leadership, and policies and programs aimed at promoting women, respecting workers and their individual rights, and providing family support.

So how do you obtain the information you need to evaluate these areas? Start your detective work with these 11 strategies:

1. Look for Blue Ribbons
Many companies that recognize women’s work issues get recognized. Catalyst, a nonprofit that researches, consults and educates on workplace gender issues, recognizes pioneering companies. For starters, Julie Nugent, senior associate of Catalyst’s research and model workplace initiatives, advises women to take full advantage of the organization’s Web site. The National Association for Female Executives‘ (NAFE’s) Top 30 Companies for Executive Women and Working Mother magazine’s 100 Best Companies lists are also great resources.

2. Scan the Web for Who Came in Last
“You can do this by searching on phrases like ‘gender discrimination’ and ‘lawsuit,’ or ‘sexual harassment’ and ‘settlement’ to see companies against whom suits have been filed or with which settlements have been reached,” advises Susan Colantuono, CEO of Leading Women, a Rhode Island-based firm offering leadership education for women.

3. Find Out Who’s Running the Show
“Take a look at their leadership,” says Nugent. “Are there any women? Are there diverse individuals on their site? Do companies have diversity on their agenda, and is it plainly important to them?”
Shubert advises women to scan annual reports and company Web sites to count the number of women in upper-level management. Is it a boys’ club, or is it inclusive? Is it diverse? More top-level women usually means a better environment for all women.

Also consider who your boss will be. You can work for the most women-friendly company in the industry, but if your boss does not embrace the company’s espoused values and is unwilling to acknowledge individual needs, that potential job may not work for you. So pay attention during the interview process. Look around your boss’s office or cubicle. Is there a sign that your boss has a life outside work and respects others? Ask her what she is most proud of. If she says, “the time I got everyone to pull an all-nighter to get a job done,” take note.

4. Evaluate Programs and Policies
“A company’s policies around what kind of packages they provide speak to their values,” explains Deborah Cutler-Ortiz, director of national programs and policy for Wider Opportunities for Women, a Washington, DC-based nonprofit that trains women for better paying jobs. “When you’re talking about no benefits, no nothing, you’re communicating how you value your employees.”

Again, awards, reports and Web sites are excellent research tools. Shubert recommends reviewing the criteria Catalyst, NAFE and Working Mother use to judge companies for their lists. See which policies are most important to you and base your search accordingly. Programs that typically matter to women most are those that affect promotion, work/life balance and pay equity.

5. Rate the Space
Does the physical office space look gender-neutral? Shubert recalls once visiting a company with the women’s bathroom a hiking distance from the executive offices. When you visit a potential employer, take note: Do you see women? Are you introduced to women during the interview? If so, what are their positions and do you get a sense of how long they’ve been with the company? Retention rates are an important gauge of worker satisfaction.

6. Interview Them
Don’t be shy about discussing gender. “It’s completely appropriate for a woman to ask the questions that will impact her own career and career growth,” says Nugent. And when you ask questions, consider: “Does it feel like an open culture where things are shared and the process is clear?” she says.

Poor or veiled communication indicates an unfriendly manager or work setting. This is also the chance for you to evaluate the hiring manager. Look for signs that she is gender-neutral. “Your first and foremost concern as a good leader is the development of talented people,” says Shubert.

7. Go to Lunch
In the advanced interview stage, ask to go to lunch with a would-be colleague. Shubert explains this is where you can ask questions about how women fit into the work environment. You also can get a better indication of whether employees feel the company is a good place to work and whether workers feel valued.

8. Turn on the Tube and Flip through Magazines
If a company advertises, see if it recognizes the importance of the female consumer, suggests Shubert. Women affect the majority of purchases in the US, and not acknowledging this fact signals that a company isn’t aware of the importance of women to its success.

9. Rank the Industry
Catalyst’s Web site lists studies by industry. Here you can get a sense of which are friendly by evaluating the industries big players, says Nugent. But, adds Cutler-Ortiz, don’t dismiss industries that aren’t yet women-friendly as they generally pay higher wages. Look for standouts and unionized companies to get the best pay and the best setting.

10. Make Some Phone Calls
“Have a robust network of women colleagues who can tell you what it’s like to work in a particular company or who can connect you with a woman who can,” says Colantuono. And if you can’t find someone connected to your prospective employer, try to connect with someone in the industry who can speak about industry practices. Companies will often benchmark their policies against industry practices as a whole.

11. Consult Your Intuition
If your instinct is telling you something’s not right in a company, listen to it. That prospective employer should not only value women but value and respect all workers and their rights. If the employer’s emphasis seems to be on input rather output, or face time rather than results, beware.

“Don’t ever treat any one piece of the puzzle as the big picture,” says Shubert. “Trust your tummy. If it doesn’t feel like a good fit for you, keep looking.”

Up to 600,000 Holiday Jobs Need to Be Filled NOW! ..

It may not be your ultimate dream job, and it may not come with benefits, but as many as 600,000 new holiday jobs are opening up this season, and many employers estimate they’ll keep about 10 percent of the temporary workers on for full-time positions after the last presents have been unwrapped and the last New Year’s toast has been made.

But if you want to take a seasonal crack at employment, you better act fast, as in right now. As soon as you’re done reading this, arm yourself with resumes, fix yourself up, run down to the nearest location of the businesses listed below, and apply in person. Although an estimated 150,900 new positions have been filled already (that’s three times as many as the same time last year) many companies, especially retailers, are currently in a frenzy to have enough employees in place for Black Friday.
The following companies are the most likely to be in need of employees immediately:
1. Macy’s:
They plan on taking an additional 65,000 workers this year for part-time positions in retail sales, gift wrapping, stocking, etc. Last year at this time, Sharon Montoya was so desperate to find holiday work she applied to Macy’s for a gift wrapping position, but when the HR interviewer saw how well-dressed she was and that she had a college degree, they put her on the sales floor, which paid more. After Christmas they offered her a full time position managing the department, and now she has moved up to a buyer’s position, and gets to be home with her family on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
2. UPS:
This delivery company is planning on hiring about 50,000 new employees to cover the holiday rush caused by increasing numbers of online shoppers. Most temporary positions start around $10 per hour, but can go higher. They include driver helpers, package sorters, etc. “Ted,” a UPS driver not at liberty to speak for the company, says he’ll happily recommend a good assistant for full time work if he or she can really pull their weight.
3. Best Buy:
This, one of the last remaining big box appliance and electronics chains, expects to hire 39,000 seasonal workers. That’s the most they’ve hired since 2006. A savvy, working knowledge of computers, electronics or appliances could secure you a position after the holidays, as helpful, informative sales associates are always in demand.
4. Toys ‘R’ Us:
In addition to their large destination stores, the company is opening 6,000 “pop up,” or temporary locations in vacant mall spaces all over the country. This holiday season they’ll be hiring an additional 35,000 managers, sales associates, cashiers, shelf stockers, various customer service helpers and back-room stockers.
5. JCPenney:
They plan on bringing on 30,000 temporary workers to help with sales, stocking, gift wrap, cleaning, straightening and hanging, check out, etc. They’re also known for recognizing talented, dedicated workers and keeping them on after the holidays.
6. Michaels:
This popular crafts chain intends to bring on 10,000 seasonal workers, up from 7,500 last year. Those who do crafts as a hobby can make them pay off this holiday season, as the most likely to be hired are those who know how to use their products.
7. Hickory Farms:
This is another retailer that boosts its mall profile with “pop up” stores around the holidays. They will be filling at least 10,000 positions as gift wrappers, cashiers, sales associates and sample personnel.
Other companies that plan to bring on at least 1,000 additional workers this holiday season include:
The single most important qualification right now
Know that you won’t be alone in applying for these jobs, but the one characteristic that will make you stand out from all the others is flexibility — which in this case translates into a willingness to work early in the morning, late at night and on the holidays themselves. State right up front that you will work Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, Dec. 26 and New Year’s Eve, even Christmas Day, if they’re open. Students who want to earn extra money during their holiday vacations but need travel time and don’t want work on the actual holidays, are not likely to get those coveted positions.
Don’t pay attention to the nay-sayers who tell you it’s already too late. At least these companies will have a favorable impression and your resume on file, so that if any of the employees they already hired can’t fulfill their obligations at the last minute, you can be their go-to guy or girl.

Seven High-Paying Jobs You Can Get with a Bachelor’s Degree

Want a high-paying job after you earn your bachelor’s degree? Take more technology, business or finance classes. Students who graduate with these degrees draw the highest starting salaries because they have skills in short supply and are entering fields where jobs are plentiful.

Take a look at our list of high-paying jobs you can get with a four-year degree, with salary data from Monster’s Salary Wizard:

Business Process Consultant

Landing this high-paying job takes a great GPA from a competitive school, a winning personality and analytical chops. In exchange for entry-level pay in the $70Ks, you could spend up to 90 percent of your time traveling, says Jon Mazzocchi, partner and general manager at Winter, Wyman & Co., a New York City staffing firm. If the long hours energize you, head back to school for an MBA in two years at the company’s expense.

ERP Analyst
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) analyst is a high-paying job because knowing how to extract and use data from companywide systems to do forward planning, find cost savings and make quick decisions can positively influence the bottom line. Make yourself a hot hire by snagging an internship where you get experience with SAP or Oracle before you graduate, says Josh Warborg, district president for Robert Half International in Menlo Park, California.

Web Security Administrator
Given the constant drum beat of regulation, compliance and intrusion attempts, security administration is the most promising entry-level job for IT grads right now, says David Foote, CEO of Foote Partners, a Vero Beach, Florida, IT analyst firm. It’s a great option for techies who are very technical, tenacious, suspicious and never satisfied. Do an internship leading to a security clearance to boost your salary even higher.

IT Auditor
Information technology auditors make sure computer systems do what they’re supposed to do in the way they’re supposed to do it, like manage orders or track shipments. Get a dual major (or a major and emphasis) in accounting and IT to set yourself up for this high-paying job, Warborg says.

Environmental Engineer
Use math to make the world a greener place, as well as chemistry and biology to clean up environmental damage. You can also work helping companies prevent environmental hazards. Having a military background or security clearance can add 15 percent to virtually any engineer’s salary, says Elaine Varelas, managing partner of Keystone Partners, a Boston career-management firm.

Financial Reporting Accountant
Complying with the ever-growing demands of the Securities and Exchange Commission, talking to the external auditors and making sure your employer is following accounting rules will all be on your to-do list when you work as a financial reporting accountant.

Web Software Developer
By working internships before you finish your four-year degree, you can get the one year of experience you need in Web-based development to win this high-paying job. Experience with .Net and object-oriented applications is especially valuable, Foote says.

Hourly Wage: 10 Jobs that Pay $50 per Hour

Want to a job that earns $50 per hour? Prepare to break open the books, attend classes and gain some serious know-how. That is the way to earn big bucks. The following is a list of 10 jobs in IT, health care, engineering, law and other fields that will get you earning six figures.

01. Clinical Psychologist
Hourly pay: $50.29 – $102.00
If you find human behavior fascinating, and you’d like to earn a hefty income, consider a career as a clinical psychologist. You can work in a variety of settings, from a private practice in your home to a being part of a medical team at a hospital. Clinical psychologists help their patients deal with both mental disorders, like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, as well as shorter-term needs like processing the death of a loved one or a divorce. This job requires earning a Ph.D. and the competition to get into a doctoral program in psychology is fierce. The market is expected to grow for this job in the coming years, especially for psychologists with subspecialties in certain disorders or age groups.
Clinical Psychologist Jobs


02. Attorney / Lawyer
Hourly pay: $51.33 – $102.00
Love ’em or hate ’em, they’ll always have a job. From building a new office building to sorting out a will, lawyers are essential to all kinds of negotiations and business processes. As a lawyer, you can specialize in the area that most suits your strengths and interests, like justice for children or patent law for new technologies. To get working as a lawyer, you need to complete an undergraduate degree, three years of law school and pass a state bar exam.
Legal Jobs

03. Senior Electrical Engineer
Hourly pay: $42.01 – $69.53
Who makes a DVD player show movies, a robot talk or your computer save those family photos? Electrical engineers do. They design, test and improve electronics of all kinds. Electrical engineers need to be good with the numbers, as well as creative, curious, and detail-oriented. As a senior engineer, years of experience and managerial skill are essential since you will be leading a team. To get into this line of work, you need to complete an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering, and can expect to take continuing education courses throughout your career. Demand for these engineers is expected to grow as our dependence on electronic devices does.
Electrical Engineer Jobs
04. Optometrist
Hourly pay: $50.12 – $62.83
If you have your eyes on a healthy salary in a growing field, consider optometry. As the baby boomers age, this is yet another area of health care that is expected to grow. Optometrist test for eye sight problems and eye diseases and can prescribe certain medicines or refer patients to other doctors. This work requires completion of a four year degree at an accredited school of optometry. And, even if you’re up for four years of school, acceptance into optometry school is highly competitive and may be a barrier. Earning and keeping up a license is also required.
Optometrist Jobs

05. Consultant, Business Process / Management
Hourly pay: $43.99 – $73.20
Here’s a “behind the scenes” gig that makes a big difference in how decisions are made at a company, government department, university, hospital or any other organization. You provide a knowledge base that an organization doesn’t already have and use it to help them solve a problem, like reworking their marketing strategy or streamlining their manufacturing process. And, you get paid well for your help. This work can often be project-oriented, short-term and highly demanding. The use of consultants is up in recent years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) as businesses hustle to compete with as small of a payroll as possible.
Business Jobs
06. Project Manager, Information Technology (IT)
Hourly pay: $44.85 – $73.77
In a world where technology can put a company on the fast track to success, workers who understand both technology and how to lead a team have a lot of work opportunities. Most IT project managers have an undergraduate degree in some area of computer science or math and employers often prefer that they have an MBA, as well. Project managers are often in line to become chief technology officers.
IT Jobs

07. Software Quality Assurance (SQA) Lead
Hourly pay: $44.1 – $57.02
Do you tend to find and notice everything wrong with how your computer, a website or some other electronic device works? You might be able to put that knack to work. In fact, you might not even need an undergraduate degree to get hired if you’re a natural. You need a logical mind and great attention to detail to get started in quality assurance. You can then lead a team of people whose job is to find errors in software or other systems before they are made available to the public. This line of work is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years as the demand for electronics grows.
Quality Assurance Jobs

08. Consultant, Education/Training
Hourly pay: $39.15 – $78.63
Education and training consultant was named one of CNNMoney’s “Best Jobs in America.” Imagine flying to some major city, meeting with a company’s top employees to train them on the latest technology or team building technique. For the right person, this could be a really fun job. Education consultants typically work for themselves so it’s important to market yourself in order to find work. Job opportunities are expected to grow in the coming years.
Education Jobs
