It’s one of the great kindnesses of life that during the holiday season — the time when everyone starts thinking, “Man, I could use a few extra bucks this month.” — a slew of seasonal, holiday jobs opens up.
And this year is no different.
Already, companies like Target and UPS are advertising tens of thousands of seasonal jobs for those who want to make a little extra money by helping stores get through their busiest season.
And now we can add Gap Inc. to the list.
(By the way, if you’re constantly on the hunt for a great job opportunity, be sure to like our Jobs page on Facebook. We post awesome opportunities there all the time — including some great work-from-home positions!)

And just so you don’t have to scroll back up to the top of this post to re-read the details, here they are again:
What? Seasonal job openings at all Gap Inc. stores, including everything from stockroom to sales to transportation.
When? Saturday, Sept. 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (local time zones).
Where? All Gap Inc. stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Gap, Gap Factory, Banana Republic, Banana Republic Factory and Old Navy.
Why? Because of all the people who will head to the mall in droves to fight each other over the last sweater in a size small that their child just haaaaas to have — but don’t worry, you’re just there to collect that extra cash.
Go here to see some of the available seasonal openings on the Gap Inc. website.
And — just so you know — Gap Inc. has announced it will be closing about 200 Gap store locations over the next few years. It will, however, open about 270 Old Navy and Athleta store locations over the same period.
Here’s a (boring) explanation about growth and balance, but what you really need to know is these seasonal jobs are just that — seasonal. Regardless of what’s shutting down three years from now, it’ll still be nice to have a little extra money coming in this holiday season.
