The first stage begins in late winter and lasts through the spring. The main advantages of employment in this period — the opportunity to pre-negotiate with the employer all the conditions to find a job in the period after the end of the contract, or plan future employment, if it provides for selected position.

Traditionally seasonal employment is considered work in construction, however, thanks to modern technology, the builders can continue their work even in the winter. The demand for builders in the summer is still high, compared to other seasons.

How much can you earn

Earnings in the periodic employment varies depending on the scope and proposals of the employer. So, if, for example, for seasonal work arranged a chef with a rate of 300-500 UAH per day, in many cases, the employer may, at its expense, to provide housing or meals.

What to avoid

Usually the “cons” seasonal work I think:

  • usually heavy physical labor;
  • little time to rest due to high intensity;
  • the variability of the employer;
  • likely to fall for scams.

Note that before to conclude an agreement on temporary work should thoroughly review the document and make sure that the employer is willing to properly provide assurances on their part.

In turn, employers often face the problem of high turnover and are trying to solve this problem with the help of recruiting agencies.

“Seasonal work for low-skilled staff has a number of nuances — often long working hours, temporary clearance,” — said in comments TSN.ia recruiter company Smart Solutions Tamara Tamindarova.

As noted by the expert, sometimes workers get a job for 1-2 weeks to work same job abroad, only for a big salary.

“Sometimes it happens that employees lose motivation and refuse to work, sometimes just “disappear,” she added.
