Guide to Temping
Perhaps you didn't intend to spend four
years pursuing a degree to end up working as a temp, but temping
does have its advantages.
Only 15 to 30% of graduates each year will have a contract
or employment offer in their hand when they receive their
diploma. The remaining 70-85% will continue looking for a
full-time opportunity over the next several months.
While searching for your "dream job" or simply looking for
some money during breaks (summer, winter, spring) temporary
positions are great!
Advantages of Temping:
- Allows you the opportunity to explore
a particular company or field of interest. If you ask, agencies
can try to place you in a specific field of study or interest.
- Provides you with networking opportunities
and job related references. (Always get business cards).
- Develop your computer skills and build
- With good computer skills you can get
wages of $10-$12 an hour, which is better than that mall
- Temping provides a flexible schedule
to take time off for interviews or even a summer vacation
without much hassle.
