  1. I love the idea of contacting stay-at-home moms. I think they will be more than thrilled to help out especially if it’s for the holidays. I am pretty sure that they’ll love to work extra this holiday season so that they can put in some extra money in their homes.

  2. Many seniors and stay-at-home moms are looking for extra money around the holidays. They are the ideal group to look for staffing come this holiday season.

  3. Rieva,

    I would definitely go virtual. There are people who are ready to cover youduring the holidays, and there are literally hundreds of people who are waiting for your orders/projects.

  4. HiringThing is hiring software that works with many businesses looking to find seasonal workers (w2 and 1099 positions). In addition to helping you attract candidates, you can use the tool to sort through resumes, rate applicants and schedule interviews.
