CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- With the Christmas season coming up, Jenny Eaves says she's hunting for a job that will employ her not just through the holidays but into the months beyond.
Laid off from her office post in August, the Ringgold, Ga., woman said at the Tennessee Career Center last week the job market remains tough.
"You have to stand out," she said. "A lot of people are applying."
The holidays are slated to create thousands of job opportunities in the Chattanooga area, though most of the retail and delivery slots are only seasonal. With Amazon likely to hire up to 1,500 or so temporary workers alone in Southeast Tennessee, the Chattanooga area is expected to see a big bump during the season.
