With the anticipation of a busy holiday season, the United States Postal Service is hiring more than 40,000 seasonal workers nationwide and hosting job fairs around the Los Angeles area.

The seasonal employment opportunities include, but are not limited to, city and rural mail carriers, mail handlers and drivers. The USPS says the holiday season is the agency’s peak season for mail and package deliveries.

“Our entire organization is focused on delivering a successful holiday season. To make this happen, we need great people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation,” Louis DeJoy, CEO and Postmaster General, said in a statement. “The Postal Service offers many opportunities for seasonal employment. For many, a seasonal role can be the start of an exciting career with the Postal Service.”

To support the seasonal hiring effort, the Postal Service is hosting 58 job fairs in select cities across the country, with several in the Los Angeles area beginning on Tuesday.
