Looking to make some extra cash this winter with a holiday job but have no prior experience? That's not necessarily a deal breaker for all companies. With a little persistence you'll still be able to score that perfect seasonal job – with or without a job history.
1. Look for entry level jobs – While hunting for a holiday job, look for jobs that don't require much experience. You'll have better luck getting a cashier job than you will a manager job.
2. Be willing to take a part-time job – Companies hiring for the holiday season frequently hire part-time workers. You might want a full-time job, but taking a part-time job instead can be a great way to get your foot in the door.
3. Tell employers about your strengths – You might not have any job experience, but we bet you have plenty of life experience that will come in handy in your new seasonal job. Perhaps you volunteered at a summer school or babysat your neighbors' kids. The more you tell employers about yourself in the application, the more likely they are to hire you for a seasonal job.
