Temporary Employment Can Become Full-Time
While there have been numerous delays in the construction industry due to COVID-19, several clients have expressed their interest in seeking temporary construction workers for the summer and fall of 2020. We have been working closely with our clients and employees to ensure the health and safety is the number one priority. If you are seeking temporary employment, with the hope for full-time employment, here are some tips to follow:
Tip # 1 – Always Be On Time
The most important thing you can do when working a temporary job is to show up on time! Effective time management shows an employer they can trust you, and they will respect you for being on time.
Tip # 2 – Go Above and Beyond
When you are working a temporary job, always go above and beyond from your job description. You must be capable of handling all of your job duties, and then seeking opportunities to do more. Check in with the manager, foreman, or whomever is in charge of the project to see if there are additional things you can do. Even something as simple as helping to organize and clean up the job site at the end of the day can impress your new employer. Prove to the employer that you are an asset, and they typically will reward you with future employment with their firm.
Focus on getting along with all the other workers and the managers. It is vital to be a good “team player” as a temporary employee if you want to be hired on full-time, or for additional jobs in the future. Do not get involved in disputes on the job site. Do not be a burden to the rest of the employees as the goal is to be noticed for your hard work, not a poor attitude.
Let employers know you are interested in full time work
As you continue working hard and building relationships, inform the company that you are interested in full time employment. Make sure you don’t press this issue too often, as you do not want to annoy the manager. The goal is to express your interest and prove your worth with hard work!
