Did you recently move to the Atlanta area? Are you looking for a job? Finding work in a new city can be challenging. If you’re not sure where to begin, check out the benefits of temporary assignments.
Jump Right In
So you’re ready to embrace Southern hospitality, but it’s difficult to get to know your new home when you’re locked indoors scrolling through the help wanted ads. Temp work allows you to quickly adjust to your new surroundings. You’ll learn your way around, meet new friends and discover all Atlanta has to offer.
Earn Money While You Job Hunt
Moving is expensive, and job searching pays $0. However, if you partner with a staffing agency, you can start a temp assignment as soon as something becomes available. Plus, while you are earning a paycheck, a professional recruiter will continue looking for permanent placements. So, you’ll have help with your employment search and make money at the same time. Talk about a win/win situation!
Test the Waters
When you relocate, it’s difficult to know which organizations have the best reputations. And you don’t want to accept a position only to discover you picked a job at the wrong company. Temporary work gives you flexibility. You can try out different placements before making a long-term commitment. On-the-job experiences will give you a better idea of where you want to work. Then, you can pursue those opportunities with confidence.
Build Your Network
You’ll need time to build up relationships. Temporary assignments are a fantastic way to meet local experts within your industry. Between managers, supervisors, co-workers and all their connections, you can develop your network even faster than you imagined.
Get Your Foot in the Door
As an out-of-towner, you may struggle to get your resume past a hiring manager. After all, no one here knows you. A temp assignment can change all that. Now, someone in the area has observed firsthand what a great employee you are. If they don’t hire you (or if you’d rather work somewhere else), you still have a strong local reference.
