Ad Feedback

There's more good news for those seeking employment opportunities during the holidays.

November saw huge hiring gains in holiday retail, according to global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc.

The data shows 423,500 employees were added to the holiday workforce, the largest November gain since 2007.

Last month's hiring surge is up 27 percent from last year.
Experts predict hiring for the month of December will be about the same as last year.
But  John A. Challenger, chief executive of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, said stronger than expected sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday could boost December employment gains, resulting in even more hiring.
