If you or someone you know is looking for work, many experts say that October is the best time to apply. In fact, hundreds of thousands of jobs will be filled this season. If you're worried about taking a temporary job, don't worry. Temporary jobs are a great way to get your foot in the door and possibly gain full-time employment. Mike “Dr. Woody” Woodward, Executive Coach and author of ‘The You Plan’, says, "The bulk of your seasonal hiring is typically going to be in your traditional brick and mortar stores like in Macy's, for example who's projected to bring on 83,000 employees this year. There are even some reports that they're actually going to be opening for the first time on Thanksgiving Day at 8 p.m.”.
