Tips For Temps 

Fitting into the culture and systems of a new company every few weeks or months, is a considerable challenge. It’s important, therefore, to approach temping with the right mindset: 

  • Presentation, manner and willingness to help are as important in a temporary position as in a permanent position.
  • You may be temporary but you still want to be given a good reference – or to be asked back. 
  • Be discreet. Everything you hear about a company’s personnel or its business is confidential and should not be discussed outside.
  • Find out as much as you can about what is expected of you, on day one. You don’t want to be asking obvious questions three days into the job.
  • Having said that, you can’t be expected to know everything. If you are unsure about anything – do ask. 
  • Be sociable; show that you are friendly and approachable. Not only will you enjoy your work more, it will ensure that you are remembered for future work. 
  • Always contact Clark Office directly if you are running late or unable to attend your assignment.
