However, we often here it’s only a Temporary Job…aren’t they only for graduates or for people who can only work part-time due to their circumstances?’ Wrong….
Here are some tips about making the most of your new role.
Don’t take the view that this is a short term stop gap, remain positive and look at your job as a real world audition. Apply yourself to the best of your ability and appreciate the fact that you now have a foot in the door of a company which realises that it is in a growth phase and is in the most likelihood, under staffed.
Discover if this industry is for you. Many people have spent a lot of time studying with the intention of making a living in a particular sector only to find out that it wasn’t for them in the first place. Your experience will give you a real world view of the everyday runnings of an industry as opposed to the ones you envisioned.
Irrespective of how long you are in a position, you have been presented with the opportunity to extend your network and develop new contacts. Start your job with the intention of leaving it with a glowing report from your supervisor. You never know when your paths may meet again.
So, the next time you are browsing through a jobs website, don’t just skip over the Temporary position ones. The risks are minimum and the possibilities are endless.
