Don’t let the unemployment rate get you down this season. While you are in between jobs or searching for a way to supplement your income, now is the time to start applying for temporary, seasonal, or part-time jobs. Below I’ve listed five employer’s currently hiring this month. Earn extra cash to lift your holiday spirits.
So who’s hiring for the holidays in the Baltimore area?
Lloyd Staffing, a resource for local candidates in the Baltimore area, located in Pikesville, MD focuses on niche markets such as accounting & finance, administrative services, healthcare, information technology, and sales/sales management.

Baltimore Data Capture Center, BDCC, is actively recruiting applicants to process millions of census forms. This is not a door-to-door position; you will work in Essex, MD in a production center outfitted with specialized equipment and systems to process census documents from the eastern United States. I featured this employer last month, and believe it deserves another mention since positions start at $16 per hour and schedules are flexible. Positions are full-time day or evening and part-time day or evening and one Saturday shift. Don’t have transportation? Contact the Maryland Transit Administration, MTA, for special bus routes they’ve created to support the census project.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car is searching for part-time service agents to perform maintenance on its fleet. Responsibilities may include routine detailing (i.e., cleaning the interiors and washing vehicles), transporting vehicles between Enterprise locations, dealerships and customers, as well as other routine maintenance (i.e., checking fluid levels and changing tires). Positions are available in Baltimore and Owings Mills, MD.
Verizon Wireless is recruiting for retail sales representatives who are ambitious and have what it takes to close sales, beat quotas, and rack up commissions. Its best if you have at least 1-2 years of sales experience in a commission environment; a college degree and bilingual Spanish skills are a definite plus.
UPS is actively recruiting for seasonal daytime driver helpers – no driving required- Thanksgiving through Christmas, apply today! As a UPS Seasonal Driver Helper you will not drive the delivery vehicle but assist the UPS Driver in the delivery of packages. Seasonal Driver Helpers usually meet the UPS Driver at a mutually agreed upon time and location each weekday (Monday through Friday) and typically do not work on weekends or selected holidays. Hours vary but usually begin after 8:00 a.m. and end before 8:00 p.m.
I’ve only listed a handful of employers to get you started. To search for additional temporary, seasonal or part-time jobs in the area, visit Craigslist and one of my personal favorites indeed.com. Indeed is a job search engine which collects job listings from across the web. One search allows you to search jobs from job boards, newspapers, classifieds and company websites.
Now you’re ready to deck the halls with employment opportunities, fa, la la la la, la la la la.
