Temporary employment is a three-
sided work relationship among the
client company where temps are
placed, the staffing service, and the
As a temp, you are always going to
be linked to your staffing service and
to the potential client companies where
you perform your work assignments.
This means you have two employ-
ment partners who will assess your
skills, abilities, and performance. These
partners are the pipeline for your work.
Impress either, and you ll stack the
odds in your favor for continuing work
assignments. Impress them enormously,
and you could receive an offer for a full-
time position. The good news is that as
a temp, you are actually in the business
of You, Inc. This means you are your own
product. No one but you can bring the
exact same formula to your temp assign-
ments. Because of this, you have the ability
to stand out and make yourself memorable
and desirable as an employee.
As a temporary employee, it pays to
realise that many client companies are
impressed by temps who treat their
temporary work assignments like a full-
time job. Assuming skill and experience
levels can be met, demonstrate basic
good business practices such as being
on time, dressing appropriately, making
a great first impression, demonstrating
a positive attitude, being respectful and
considerate of others.
These are the steps you can take, for
each of your employment partners, to
become the temp everyone wants to
FROM THE CLIENT
• Understand the company s culture.
In a word, a company s culture is
their "personality". For a temp, (or any
employee for that matter), being able
to relate well to that personality is
extremely important. It means fitting
in with the norms and behaviors of a
company s policies, practices, employ-
ees, and management. Not being able
to mesh well can really be a problem.
When new, keep your eyes open,
observe, and learn!
• Be easy to train.
Take notes, and refer to them. Engage
in training by asking relevant questions,
expressing understanding of concepts
and details. Know who you can go to
for help on the job and where to find
information on your own so you can
be as self-sufficient as possible.
• Know how to build rapport.
Understand how to be friendly with-
out the need to "make friends" on
work assignments with both employees
and managers. Don t ask prying or per-
sonal questions of those you work with.
By the same token, don t reveal too
much about your own personal life or
work situation. Keep things light and
general, after all... it is a work envi-
• Don t get too familiar too fast.
Being new at a company you need
to respect boundaries (both physically
and socially) within the workspace.
Some examples are: not helping your-
self to supplies, snacks, or coffee, and
not passing judgments on the client s
processes, practices, employees, or
management. While temps need to be
comfortable on assignments, there is
a line not to be crossed that shows a
sense of entitlement or the right to
• Be adaptable and flexible.
Develop a "go with the flow" attitude
and be ready for constant changes.
Change is the nature of temporary
work, so be a capable chameleon.
