If you think the seasonal jobs market is limited to entry-level, low-paid customer service positions, think again.

According to FlexJobs, there are opportunities for flexible seasonal employment in a variety of industries, including the following:

  • Sports and fitness
  • Marketing
  • IT
  • Education
  • Accounting and finance
  • Administrative
  • Arts and entertainment

With the upcoming election, holidays, ski season and tax season just around the corner, this is the perfect time to hunt for a job that suits your particular interests and/or skills.

Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs, says in a statement:

“Seasonal jobs can be a great strategy for professionals to supplement income during the holiday season. … But beyond that, seasonal jobs can also be a great way to gain experience and skills, build upon your resume, provide a foot in the door with a company to a permanent position.”

FlexJobs recently highlighted 15 flexible, seasonal jobs based on job listings on its site. Here are eight jobs off the list that may pique your interest:

  • Election clerk
