GREENSBORO, N.C. -- — Right before the holiday shopping and holiday shipping season, UPS is having a hiring blitz in Greensboro.

It's not just a couple dozen openings, we're talking hundreds of jobs.

The question U-P-S is known for asking is "What can brown do for you?" This holiday season, let's flip that around and see "What can you do for Brown?"

UPS is hiring more than 600 people just in the Greensboro area. Friday they're hosting a hiring fair, and will hire some people on the spot.

Pay ranges from 10 to almost 19 dollars an hour depending on the position.

These sound like pretty good gigs right? So how can you turn that seasonal job into a full-time one?

We went to a local hiring agency to find out how to separate yourself the other 599 other seasonal employees.

"I always tell people to put their best foot forward. You never know if a temporary job could turn into a full-time opportunity," said Makailah Bennett, a recruiter with The Resource in Greensboro.

So what does putting your best foot forward really mean?

"Attendance, being confident in what you're doing -- and ask questions. Show that you want to be there," said Bennett.

UPS says more than 30 percent of their seasonal workers have been hired on full-time in recent years.

The UPS jobs range from tractor-trailer drivers... to package handlers... to delivery drivers who can drive their own car.
