When you’re a temp worker, thinking ahead about your next assignment is always important. Finding the right jobs is essential to advancing your career path and staying happy with your work – and you can only do this with some forethought and advanced planning.
If you find yourself uncertain about how to decide what you want in your next assignment, here are a few key steps to take:
- Evaluate what you like and dislike about your current job. When deciding what your next assignment should be, it’s helpful to think about what’s currently working well and what you wish would change. For example, if you find yourself too isolated in your current position and miss having more interactions with others, you may want your next assignment to put you in a more people-oriented position.
- Consider your future career plans. It’s also important to think about where you want your career to go and what professional objectives you hope to achieve. By considering your career trajectory, you can look for temp work that will allow you to develop skills that will enhance your resume in your desired field. You can also find work at companies where you can make solid connections within your chosen industry.
- Talk with your recruiter regularly. Your recruiter needs to know where your mind is and what you’re looking for in a new position. By keeping in regular contact with your recruiter and sharing your thoughts about what you hope your next assignment will involve, your recruiter can be on the lookout for positions that appear to fit the bill. Your recruiter can use the information you provide to match you with the most appropriate future employer, so your next assignment will be even better than your current one.
