5 Ways to Nurture Your Career with Temporary Assignments

Gone are the days when temp work meant filling in for someone on vacation, leave or other absence. Today, temporary assignments can help pave the way to a rewarding and fulfilling career. In fact, temporary work can help enhance your career by helping you build skills, get your foot in the door at specific companies, land a full-time job, and more. Here are five ways to use temporary work to advance your career.
  1. Improve interviewing and job search skills. Trying to find a job on your own can be a real challenge--especially if you've been out of work for a while or if you are transitioning to a new field. Our staff can help you improve your resume and practice your interviewing skills. Plus we will show you how to put your best foot forward to take advantage of new opportunities.

  2. Build your resume. Temporary assignments allow you to quickly build your resume. Temporary assignments give you hands on experience in your field of choice. And as you develop new job skills, you'll be qualified for an even greater range of assignments--all while establishing valuable new career contacts. Even more, many staffing firms (including PrideStaff) offer a wide variety of free training and tutorials that can help make you stand out as an even stronger candidate.

  3. Get your foot in the door. If your goal is to find a permanent position, temporary work can help you get there. More than 50% of temp assignments lead to other opportunities or full-time placement.

  4. Uncover "hidden" job opportunities. Did you know that many jobs are not advertised publicly? Working with a staffing agency allows you to find job opportunities that you could not find on your own.

  5. Get the "inside scoop" with a variety of highly desirable employers. Wouldn't it be nice to know what an employer is looking for BEFORE you go on your interview? Well, we already know! As staffing specialists, we really get to know our clients. We can tell you what an employer wants in a new employee. We can teach you about the employer's corporate culture, interviewing style, decision-making "chain of command", etc.--which will help you be much more successful in your in interviews. When it comes to landing a job, our inside scoop gives you a definite advantage over your competition.
So, if you're looking to build your resume, learn new things, or even change careers, give us a call today!
