How’s your job search trucking along? Does it feel like it’s stuck in transit?
UPS is expanding its delivery service to include Saturdays, and online shoppers aren’t the only ones to reap the benefits. This extra day is also a major boon for job seekers, as the new Saturday delivery service is expected to create 6,000 new jobs at 5,800 UPS locations by the end of 2018.
Rather than waiting five to seven business days, hiring is already underway, UPS spokeswoman Dawn Wotapka told CNNMoney, as the logistics company aims to open up about 4,000 of these jobs this year.
A quick search on Monster supports these heavyweight hiring plans. More than 1,400 UPS jobs have been posted on Monster in the past 30 days, according to data provided by the TalentNeuron tool from insights and technology company CEB.
The most jobs available right now are for drivers—both tractor-trailer drivers and package delivery drivers—but you’ll also find loads of jobs for supervisors, analysts, warehouse associates, package handlers, and shipping and receiving clerks. (Check out all UPS jobs on Monster here.)
