Help! My Rent is Due in Two Weeks and I Don’t Have a Job Yet

temporary staffing OrlandoNeed a job right now? While you’ve been setting up interviews and scouring the daily want-ads, there is one industry that’s been employing more qualified individuals than any other.

Temporary Staffing is Hiring

According to statistics presented by a recent NPR article, “The temp industry has added more jobs than any other over the past three years. Nearly 13 million people head to work as temporary and contract employees each year. While the job market remains sluggish, temporary work is one area that’s done very well in the economic recovery. Companies are keeping their temps longer and are even using them to fill professional and high-ranking positions.”

So, what does all this good news mean for you, the professional, who still hasn’t found your perfect fit in the job market?

Change is Here. Make the Most of it!

With every type of change, there will always be two crowds. One who sees the negative and the other, who recognizes the opportunities. Now that you know the face of employment in this nation is changing (really we should say has changed) what are you going to do about it? As a qualified, experienced professional, continuing to pound the pavement for career opportunities can be a lengthy process. Looking at a job search realistically, it’s generally the TIME involved that stresses us out, not the search itself. Somewhere in the back of your mind while you’re sending out resumes, you have that imaginary clock ticking, “My rent is due in two weeks. I’ve got a car payment to make on Friday and I absolutely have to find a job immediately!”

Stop right there. This is where we insert the good news. Temporary staffing services in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Bradenton and across the state are hiring, and it really is good news! If you’ve been thinking about temporary staffing negatively, “Who wants a part time, temporary assignment when I have full time responsibilities?” we’re about to set the record straight.

Temporary Staffing 100% Positive

Remember when I said there are two types of people? Well you may have been one of the negatives, up until now. Knowledge is power and a quick education on temporary staffing is exactly what you’re in need of:

Myth: Temporary staffing offers low pay.

Truth: The temporary staffing industry pays competitive wages to all employees, and even provides health care and other benefits in certain situations.

Myth: Temporary staffing assignments will put you in a different job every day.

Truth: Temporary staffing services offer assignments that last a few days, a few weeks, or even seasonal employment. There are permanent positions available as well as temp-to-perm positions. It’s really up to you!

Myth: Temporary staffing is only for low-level, unskilled workers.

Truth: Temporary staffing services (especially HH Staffing in Orlando, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Clearwater and Bradenton) match quality professionals with employees looking for their skill set. The truth of the matter is, many companies are looking to temporary staffing agencies like HH Staffing Services to fill high level positions. Even more exciting is when a temporary employee flourishes during a particular assignment and is hired on full time. We’ve even had our candidates pulled into different departments and had positions “created” for them, just because the business didn’t want to lose them.
