You may find yourself in need of a temporary job; maybe you’re on a break from school, or maybe you just need to make a little extra cash in a short amount of time. Even though it may seem tough to find a temp job on your own, you do have a few options.
1. Look on Job Boards-
Job boards are a great way to find temp work because they’re often very clear with the term length, skills required, and any other pertinent information you need to know. Check out the Award Staffing job board to see some of the latest opportunities available.
2. Use Social Media-
You can use social media in one of two ways to search for temp jobs. First, you can post on your personal social media profiles that you’re looking for a temp job and see if you receive any responses. Second, you can search for temp jobs on the social media profiles of companies for whom you want to work. We recommend you follow Award Staffing’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn profiles to see what may be of interest to you. We post new opportunities daily to our followers.
3. Ask via Word of Mouth-
Your friends and family may know of great temporary/freelance opportunities, but they need to know you’re looking! If you throw out that you are in need of temp work, you may be surprised at the opportunities your friends and family present to you.
4. Use a Staffing Agency-
One of the easiest ways in which to find temp work is to use a staffing agency. When you work with a staffing agency, you can tell them the amount of time you want to work and give them your unique skill sets. They have a much wider pool of jobs from which they can look, so your chances of being gainfully employed are much greater if you work with a staffing agency.
