If you are looking forward to making money working with a staffing agency, you may need to plan for how you will stay motivated when you are on short term assignments. Whether you are on the job for a single day or several weeks, keep these points in mind so you will have a successful future.
Broaden your network: You probably cannot meet a lot of people staying at home, so any temp assignment improves your chances of making additional contacts. Maybe you will find a lead to a permanent position you will love or maybe you will find someone who trains you on new software.
Collect feedback: Even if you are not going to be around for an annual performance evaluation, feedback from others helps you to do a better job and advance. Your temporary employer will be telling the agency how you are doing. Positive feedback could help you get more assignments and more opportunities to grow.
Brush up your skills: Short term temporary workers perform many of the same tasks that any employee may be doing these days. In fact, if they need to call in temps, it could be a good sign that there is high demand for those tasks.
Boost your confidence: A healthy sense of self-esteem is based on our talents and achievements. Monitor your own work. Identify your strengths and be candid with yourself about areas where you want to improve.
Serve your community: No matter what your particular line of work is, you are bound to be happier and more fulfilled if you focus on how your efforts help others. You can lift a colleague’s spirits with a sincere compliment or suggest a helpful change in business procedures even if you are in a workplace for just one day.
