TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — UPS says it is looking to fill dozens of open positions in the Tampa and Sarasota areas to assist with the anticipated increase in shipping volume.

The company says the opening are a part of its annual seasonal hiring initiative which was announced In early September. UPS said they expected to hire more than 100,000 essential seasonal employees beginning in October 2021 and continuing through January 2022.

Jobs available in the Tampa and Sarasota areas include package handlers, driver helpers and seasonal drivers.

While seasonal work doesn’t typically last a long time, UPS says there are benefits to seeking temporary jobs. Seasonal employees have the opportunity to earn up to $1,300 toward their college tuition.
