Four Things To Know When Applying As A Temporary Employee After High School

 Categories: Business, Blog


When you get out of high school, it can be hard to jump into the workforce because you more than likely have no idea what you want to do for a living. If you want to be able to try your hand at a few different trades to try to find the one that is the right one for you, you may want to give a temporary staffing company, like Employment Source, a try. The following guide walks you through a few tips to use when you go to work for the company.

Know Your Availability

Before you even go into the staffing company, you need to know what your availability is. If you plan to go to college and work at the same time, you need to request to work jobs that do not interfere with the times of your classes.

Know What Skills You Have

When you talk to the associate at the employment agency, they will need to know what skills you have that may be an asset to an employer. If you took any computer classes in high school, let the agent know. If you know how to any other specific skills, it is important to tell the agent about them so that they can find jobs that utilize those skills on a daily basis.

Know What Things You Do Not Want to Do

You need to know exactly what things you do not want to do at a job. If you are someone who does not feel comfortable working with children, let the agent know. If you have issues with germs or have medical issues that limit the jobs that you can do, let the agent know. This will help them to narrow down the jobs that are available so that they only send you to jobs that you can actually do.

Do Not Expect to Be Paid a Lot

When you work as a temporary employee, you should not expect to be paid a lot. You will be seen as someone who is expendable and thus you will more than likely earn minimum wage when you are at a job. The benefit of working as a temp is that you can try many different jobs to see which field is right for you to pursue as a career.

The agent will let you know what jobs are available so that you can choose which ones you would like to do. Be sure to take the location of each business into consideration to ensure that you will be able to get to and from the business in a timely fashion, while still going to school at the same time.
