The holiday season isn’t just about shopping.
For many people, it’s also about picking up some extra income with a temporary, seasonal job.
While the competition for those positions can be difficult in this down economy, there’s an opportunity to land one this Friday.
The Georgia Department of Labor is helping Alorica in its efforts to recruit about 100 seasonal employees to staff a call center in Kennesaw.
Customer service representatives will be recruited from 10 a.m. to noon at the Cobb-Cherokee Career Center of the labor department at 465 Big Shanty Road in Marietta.
The labor department says some jobs will require applicants to speak both English and Spanish, while others will require English only. All applicants need a high school diploma or a General Education Diploma and must be able to type at least 35 words a minute.
Applicants also need to bring a resume. Those selected must apply on-line at t he career center at www.dol.state.ga.us.
The pay is $9 an hour.
