Ask the experts: Turning your seasonal job into CV gold

Tis the season for festive jobs — and if all you want for Christmas is a new career, taking on part-time work over the holidays can score you a lot more than extra cash.

Manning checkouts on Christmas Eve or pulling pints during the Christmas break can boost your CV with skills graduate employers want to see, according to a Guardian Money article.

And once the tinsel comes down workers could find their seasonal roles turn into bigger and better things — many temporary vacancies could become permanent positions in the new year — or even lead to a place on a graduate scheme.

According to Retail Gazette, 23% of this year’s Marks & Spencer retail graduate intake started as seasonal recruits at the business last year.

So, if you’d like to know more about the roles on offer— and where they might lead — plus how to make the most of seasonal experience on your CV, join our panel of experts in a live Q&A.
