Have you ever considered working for a temporary staffing firm?
It may not be the ideal solution; but, you might want to consider that:
- depending on your financial situation, a temporary assignment might help pay the bills; and/or,
- by taking a temporary assignment you have the opportunity to showcase your skills to a company that might be a prospective employer.
Keep in mind that some companies hire temporary or “contract” employees because they have a function that needs to be performed either due to what could be a temporary or possibly longer term increase in business. But, they may not want to hire a full-time employee until they see which direction the economy is going. Or, they might not have the approval from corporate management to hire a full-time employee.
