UPS announced that it is hiring about 100,000 temporary workers for the holiday shipping season.

The jobs are to help handle the huge volume of packages shipped starting in November through January 2019.

The full-time and part-time seasonal jobs are for package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers, and can be an entry point for a full-time job at the shipping giant.

Many UPS executives, including CEO David Abney, started out as part-time workers, and the company says about 35% of the people hired as seasonal package handlers get permanent positions after the holidays.
