There are many employers who need workers to take on jobs that exist only during seasons. For example, agricultural workers and landscape workers are in demand only during specific times of the year. If you are willing to take on seasonal work, you could benefit from many great opportunities within these fields.
Not everyone is going to be good at seasonal jobs, so think about your personality and your abilities to determine if you’d be a good fit. Some key characteristics that suggest you may be a good seasonal worker include:
- A willingness to work hard on an intense schedule: Because seasonal work can only be done during a limited period of time, there is often demand to do a lot of work in a short time. This means long days and working a lot of days in a row. Many people like this schedule because they can work intensely when seasonal work is available and earn good money, and then take some time off or do less demanding work during the off-season. However, not everyone has the energy or motivation to hit the ground running and stay motivated when work is plentiful.
- An ability to pick up new skills quickly. If you are going to do seasonal work, you may have to move into different positions as the seasons change. This means meeting the demands of new employers as you move from job to job. Some employees thrive on the challenge of moving into new work sites and would get bored if they had to do the same thing year-round. Others don’t like the change. If you want to have variation in your work by seasons, then seasonal work could be the perfect fit for you.
- The ability to work in a physically demanding job. Most types of seasonal work, from holiday retail to farming or agricultural work, are going to be physical jobs that require you to stand for long periods of time and do other work that requires a high level of physical fitness.
