VIRGINIA BEACH, VA--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2014) - Liberty Tax Service has hired over 50,000 employees for the upcoming tax season. With the unemployment rate dropping for December 2013 to 6.7 percent, this is welcome news for many jobseekers and those seeking seasonal employment now that the holidays are over. The positions filled include office managers, tax preparers, marketing managers, and, of course, the popular Liberty Wavers.
"I have been with the company for 8 tax seasons now. The Liberty Tax office I work for is wonderful. The owner is great and cares about his employees. It is such a family-oriented business and I can't wait for tax season to start," states Jamie Desforges of the Nashua, New Hampshire Liberty Tax office.
"We have many people who anticipate tax season to find seasonal work. We employ students, mothers, seniors, and even seasoned CPAs.
