During this busy time of year retail shops are searching for temporary associates to help with the heaps of shoppers!
The trouble is, unless you work part time and need to make some extra cash, you’re probably searching for a permanent role and don’t want to waste time in a temporary position this season.
If you’re interested in the retail Company and want to get a foot in the door, now is your chance.
- Ask if there is potential to go permanent at the end of the season if you go above and beyond
- Ask what the percentage of seasonal employees that have gone permanent in the past, either right after their assignment or in the future
- Make sure the hiring manager knows how interested you are in the role and the company
- Prove yourself every chance you get
- Be a team leader
- If someone calls out offer to fill in for them
- Volunteer for every project
- If you aren’t offered a permanent spot, make sure you leave on good terms with contact information
- Stay in touch with the hiring manager
- Make sure to touch base with the manager especially when you read current events on the company
If you’re not working and you have an opportunity to work this season, take it! You never know where it will lead.

As recruiters, some of our busiest months are during the holidays. This is when most of our clients need additional support. The holiday season has come to an end and so have our candidates holiday season assigments.
If you are a temp or a seasonal employee there are ways you can turn your temp work into a permanent position in just five easy steps.
1. Make New Friends
• Befriend all managers and co-workers and always be positive and friendly. You never know when a full time spot will open up. You want to be the first on their mind!
2. Own It
• Be confident, dress the part, and act like it’s already yours.
3. Service With A Smile
• Patience is a virtue. Show that you can handle all the stresses, responsibility, and demands of your temp job. Be the best you can be.
4. Be Available
• If there is an emergency be the first person your manger thinks of to call for back up. Drop what you’re doing and run to the rescue!
5. Want It
• Make sure you’re temping at a place where, if offered a full time spot, you would excitedly accept.
These are only a few suggestions on how to make your favorite temp position a full time gig! Good luck and have a great weekend.

One of my favorite job blogs, Jobacle.com, has posted a great article sighting that temporary gigs are the new permanent spots.
Working at a recruiting firm gives me insight into how true this point truly is. Pyramid Consulting Group is always searching for candidates who are open to taking temporary positions. Whether it’s filling in for someone on maternity leave or a newly created position on trial – these positions have their benefits.
- Get your foot in the door and make some connections
- Gain experience in your field or new field of interest
- If you’re thinking about changing career paths temping is a great “taste test”
- Make some extra money while searching for a permanent position
- There is always the opportunity that the temp position will go permanent
According to the Wall Street Journal, referenced by The Jobable, the usage of temps has grown, citing that “temporary-help payrolls have risen for 11 of the past 12 months, with the sector adding 16.900 jobs in September.”
If you’re currently looking for temporary work and have open availability please let us know. Send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch if a temp position presents itself! Don’t forget to include “Temp” in the subject.
