Staffing Expert Talks Holiday Hiring


Bobb Nealon, a metro market manager with staffing firm Robert Half International in Providence, joined The Rhode Show, a FOX Providence morning show, to discuss the seasonal job market.

Some highlights of his discussion include:

  • Seasonal work is a great way for unemployed workers to get their foot into the job market.
  • Retail is the first thing people think of when it comes to holiday hiring, but companies in a variety of industries often beef up their ranks.
  • Many professionals vacation during the holiday season, and to maintain productivity, companies can fill in with temporary professionals to perform tasks ranging from reception and customer service to data entry.
  • Temporary work is a great option for college students who are home from school between semesters or teachers who want extra income.
