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

  • Sports and fitness

  • IT
  • Education

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:
