So, if we have a look at seasonal staffing, it becomes obvious that keeping your business afloat during the hot months gets easier when you use seasonal employees. Using international students to fill in your seasonal positions is a great way to save and diversify your working environment.

  2. paying minimum wages which look reasonable to overseas students
  3. paying less to staffing agencies (partnering with Jobofer.org means you fill your seasonal positions for free)
  4. saving on insurance payments

  6. hiring people beforehand and securing your business during the buzz months
