DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa.– As it gears up for the busy holiday shipping season, UPS announced it is hiring more than 1,100 people in the Harrisburg area. These jobs are among the 100,000 seasonal jobs UPS will be filling across the country this holiday season. The local positions are a combination of seasonal and permanent jobs, and include package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers.

Seasonal and part-time jobs have long served as a foot in the door to a career at UPS. In fact, 35 percent of the people UPS hired in the past four years for seasonal package handler jobs stayed with the company on a permanent basis after the holidays.

A press release with additional details and links accessing video b-roll and high res images are included below my signature. I’d also be happy to arrange an interview with a local UPS HR spokesperson if you’d like, or even set up a ride-along with a local driver.
