If you're looking for a job to get you through the holiday season it's not to late. Employers are still hiring for temp jobs for the holiday. Retailers need workers, as do package delivery services. You don't have a lot of time to work, but there is a chance that your employer will keep you on after the holiday.
From a personal perspective, I've seen help wanted signs in store windows and ads for many companies that are hiring seasonal workers. Ski resorts, if you're in snow country, are in the midst of hiring, as well.
If you're looking to earn some extra money during the holiday season, it's quick and easy to apply for the seasonal retail jobs that are available. I picked up a couple of holiday applications for employment at the mall the other day and the applications are so simple that they only take few minutes to complete.
Before you go, make a quick list of all the above information, so you're ready to complete an on-the-spot job application. Dress appropriately, be ready for an interview, and you may just have a job offer much sooner than you expected!
