A Changing of The Seasons

A Changing of The Seasons

  It appears that every time you turn on the news, local or national, the topic of the ongoing struggle for employment engulfs a portion of a news segment. We see this struggle on television, in the newspaper, and on the faces of many who fight the battle of finding some financial stability. The job market is tough...and although moments of recovery seem in sight, reality reminds us that there are many people still waiting for a light at the end of the tunnel.
 
Well, as with everything...lights come in different shapes, sizes and colors. And there may actually be a small light at the end of Denver's tunnel. Its essentially in the form of colorful lights that will begin to line our streets and homes.....those lights of Halloween and Christmas. The seasonal lights that brighten our city for a period in the fall and winter months  and fade slowly at the sight of the new year. Yep, it is the time of the year for seasonal employment. The time when employers add on additional staff to meet the needs of our growing city and thirst and hunger of the holiday shoppers.  Haunted houses, retail stores, etc. are currently seeking individuals willing to take on the holiday hustle and bustle, while making some extra cash along the way. All you have to do is look and think outside the box....what do you do for the holidays? Where do you like to shop? What attractions, places, and things attract those holiday crowds????
 
This may not provide a  forever solution to financial stability, full time employment or long term benefits, but it can provide an income and some hope that a change could be in the near future. For anyone who has ever worked seasonal work, the opportunity for further employment is possible. Employees come and go and positions become available for those who have learned how to complete the job and have demonstrated their overall abilities in those short seasonal months.
 
Seasonal work may not be the solution, but it is a step in the right direction....and all of us need that at some point. How willing are you for a little light in your life??
