Because this is a prime time for retail, Smith says it’s a common go-to job for those trying to supplement their income or make it through the holiday season. He says part time retail jobs very rarely turn into permanent jobs, but other positions which people might take in an administrative area during this time of year have the potential to become full time jobs.
