The Temporarily Employed Technique

If you are seeking both a way to keep busy and a way to gain valuable experience (and contacts!), temporary employment, temping, may be the solution. Most temporary help agencies are quite willing to work with new college grads, with assignments ranging from basic clerical to office administrative to para-professional.

It should be noted that general temping is different from the Puppy Dog Close selective temping in that you have little control over the assignment and company location. But it can provide you with an extra measure of experience to include on your resume and can help pay the bills until a real job comes along. Always keep your eyes open for new opportunities with the companies for which you work. You are now on the inside and have access to otherwise unavailable information.
