On a fundamental level a job is a job, whether it is temporary or permanent. Employer hiring seasonal employees look for same qualities and traits they seek when hiring permanent employees- experience, a good work ethics, professionalism and positive attitude. The key difference between seasonal and permanent employee is that there is little or no expectation that a seasonal employee will be asked to make- a long term commitment to the company.
