If you lost your job during the pandemic, there's a huge hiring event this week that you may want to consider. UPS is holding a hiring blitz called "Brown Friday" coming up this Friday, Oct. 30.
The event is part of UPS' plan to hire 100,000 seasonal workers to help with the holiday surge, and for some, it could lead to a new career. UPS says 37 percent of its seasonal workers stayed on permanently after the holidays last year.
