I have been working temporary jobs for the past year or so, with assignments that range from a couple of days to a few months. My temporary service placed me on an assignment in early December 2014 and that company has recently decided to hire me as a permanent full-time employee. This is really exciting for me because I am officially not a “temp” and I know that I’m going to have some amazing opportunities for advancement later on. This isn’t just a dead-end job that will have me stuck in the same position forever. This is the official start of my career! They know me, they understand my career goals, and they know what I am capable of. It just feels so great to be appreciated and valued by this company.
