Business group has tips for finding holiday jobs

CHICAGO (AP) - The holiday shopping season often brings a bump in the number of job openings. Seasonal jobs in the retail and restaurant industry are usually temporary, but can provide helpful added income for struggling families.

The Better Business Bureau is offering tips for job hunters:

Start the job search early. Retail, shipping, restaurants and catering companies may be doing seasonal hiring. The time to find these companies is now.

Do some research on the hiring company to see if it gets a passing grade from the Better Business Bureau.

Work where you shop. You'll be more familiar with the company and its products.

Dress your best and be prepared to interview even if you're just picking up applications at the mall.

Be flexible. Expect to work long hours during the holidays.
