Many of us have been there. We’ve been let go, laid off as part of the down-sizing process, or maybe we’ve been just plain fired. I remember the humiliation of being fired from one of my part-time college jobs. I had been working at a hair salon for a few weeks when I got pink eye. I thought I handled the situation in a responsible manner by making sure my shift was covered, so you can imagine my surprise when the owner called me that very same day to report she had ‘over hired’, so I was no longer needed.

Why Not Consider Temporary Employment?
In the insurance staffing industry, professionals such as claims adjusters often love temporary employment. They get to enjoy flexible schedules, busy summers and great pay. They get to work for a new company, have a new boss and work in different locations. For those who enjoy a change of pace, or a change of scenery – temporary employment can be a great choice. If you accepted a temporary job and really love it; let your employer know! Being great at what you do and showing commitment and enthusiasm might lead to a long-term job offer.
