Most industries now, are hard to break into partially due to their qualifications and years of needed experience. I always say how will we get the opportunity if no one opens gives it to. However you have to also open the door of opportunity for yourself. You have to educate yourself on the different ways you can break into the work field. Temp job are just like internships, and trust me I’ve done enough of both to get where I am now.
I recently accepted a job as an HR Assistant and I also write for The RapFest. I held a temporary job (temp job) prior to that to give me the skills and experience I needed. At that temp job they offered me to stay and I accepted. The point is you have to understand the similarities as much as the differences, neither temp job or internships are less of a job or title, it actually a door created by ambitious individuals like yourself to break into the work force and acquire the knowledge and experience you need. If anything you have an advantage over everyone else. If you’re a good worker, your bosses will love your work ethic and the way you conduct yourself in the office that there’s no need to outsource.
To further inform you on temp job and internships I’ve gathered a few sites with paid and free internship and temp jobs. Usually all temp jobs pay and even provide paid sick days and vacation. Take a look at the list below, and remember you have to create your own opportunity.
