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.

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 email@example.com and we will be in touch if a temp position presents itself! Don’t forget to include “Temp” in the subject.

When you start at a new job befriending co-workers can be intimidating. A majority of bonds have already been formed and you’re either sitting on the edge of newbie and “are you cool enough?” Let’s be honest, high school never ends.
Most of your energy should be spent proving yourself to your new boss but spending time on making friends isn’t against the rules. Just make sure to use your time wisely by befriending the following:
1. The Face
The receptionist is the first and last person you see. Chances are she is the eyes and ears of the company, relaying all that she sees and hears to your boss. Take a step in the right direction and befriend the receptionist.
2. Signed Sealed Delivered
The person who is in charge of messengers, mail, packages, and items that are time sensitive and important should be part of your fave five.
3. Early Bird Special
The seniors and authoritative figures in the company are great to bond with as mentors and windows into the company. Begin to form strong relationships with these people in the early stages of your career in hopes of creating a strong support system.
You won’t always be the new person and as my grandmother always said, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
5. Learn From The Intern
Your interns are not slaves. (As some of us soon forget once there are two extra hands around.) Interns are there to learn, gain experience, and soak up all the knowledge you have to offer. Interns are usually younger with a better grasp on things like social media and any and all hot topics. Learn from your intern. Treat them well because you never know when you will cross paths again. It is a small world, after all.
It’s not easy starting a new job and it’s hard to find a tight support group in an unfamiliar work environment. Follow these steps to a smooth initiation. Good luck!

“Let’s not kid ourselves: Finding a job is no picnic. Whether you are a new grad or a seasoned pro primed for a change, it takes time and commitment to land the right opportunity.
