Many full-time, higher paying positions require considerable administrative experience. But it’s not the kind of experience you walk out of the classroom with. Instead, what employers want is on-the-job experience, with references to prove you have the skills they need.
Technical College vs. Real World Experience
Higher education tuition increases have put even community college and many technical programs out of reach for most students. Smart high school graduates are making the most of work opportunities and realizing that temp-to-hire jobs make great financial sense. Not only are they getting paid (rather than paying for tuition), many positions in the Akron-Canton area provide workers with very specific skill sets and on the job training.
Administrative work is deceptively simple. On the one hand, just about anyone can say they have computer skills. But in a temporary administrative position, temporary employees often learn specific accounting, scheduling, and other programs that many employers use to run their businesses. That kind of experience pays off.
Earn While You Learn: Year-Round Opportunities
Temp-to-hire opportunities in administrative positions are available year round. Although some positions are only temporary (for long-term absences or exceptionally busy periods) quite a few jobs are offered as temp-to-hire positions, and are intended to be a sort of “trial” period for the employer and employee to determine if they have a good match.
Many people start looking for temporary work before the holiday season, assuming the opportunities are primarily retail. But employers also need additional administrative help during the holidays, to cover vacations and/or an increase in orders or returns brought about by holiday sales.
