Working on a temporary basis may not sound enticing at first, but it could be the best career decision you’ve ever made!
Temping is a terrific option and something you should try if you are considering a change, looking for something with a short-term commitment or looking for something more challenging.
But how do you make the most of your temporary assignment?
So, depending on your needs, attempt to choose a job that suits your objectives, whether short or long term. You can just be looking for a job that pays well at the end of the week, or you might be trying to break into a new field. Try to achieve whatever goal you have with your temp job.
Make the most of the time you have there. Just because you’re in a temporary position doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put up your best effort. Arrive with a pleasant attitude every day, work hard, and be dedicated. Working hard will increase your chances of being recommended and given a reference because you never know how or when you will see the recruiting manager again. Not only that, but a good employee can leave an impression – you never know when a permanent position will open up.
If you’re filling in for someone else, understand that you can’t be them and won’t have the same background experience or knowledge. Give it your all and play the part to the best of your ability. If you have any queries, don’t be hesitant to ask.
Make the most of your placement by learning new technology and expanding your portfolio and CV. Make sure your CV reflects the talents you’ve acquired during your temporary assignments.
While it’s likely that your temporary job will be just that – temporary, it shouldn’t stop you from increasing your professional network and improving your opportunities.
Don’t forget to ask for feedback at the end of your task; not only will this demonstrate that you are serious about your profession, but it will also provide you with some constructive suggestions for your future role.
