It’s June, which means congratulations are in order for the class of 2016! Whether you attended a local community college, a small liberal arts school, or a large research university, you are a lot more equipped to get a job now than you were four years ago. It can be frustrating, however, to feel so ready and up to the challenge of a job in your field, only to realize that your dream job may not be available. In this prime period of your life in which you have to support yourself, but presumably not yet others, there are so many great opportunities in temporary work for shopping around and not getting stuck in one career too early.
A Little of Everything
Not every college major is super specific, and what you’ve learned could apply to more fields than you could possibly imagine. A temp agency will do its best to place you in the field that you would like to work in, but may expose you to aspects of it that you never thought you’d be interested in. This opportunity to try everything, and have someone else weed out the bad options for you, is a great service to take advantage of.
It’s Only Temporary
Unfortunately, not a whole lot of people have the luxury of saying that they love their job. This leads you to think: well then why did they take it in the first place? Typically when one starts a job, they don’t immediately hate it. They may not state it explicitly, but the true thing that they have an issue with is not what their job is, but the sheer monotony of doing the same thing for so long. By virtue of the fact that Custom T&A Staffing provides you with potentially temporary work opportunities, you’re never overly committed to one job, allowing you to switch things up if your new gig isn’t a good fit.
Temporary placement means that you can start making money right away. Rather than waiting around for the perfect job, afraid to get stuck in something you don’t love, you might as well work in the mean time. Yes, looking for a job sometimes seems like a full time job in and of itself, but making money through temporary work is great for staying afloat financially when times are tough.
Take advantage of this rare time in your life! You’re on your own now, and the only person who can brighten your future is you. Take control and get placed in a great job in your field today!
