How Volunteering Will Help Your Career

December 28th, 2017

This time of year, many people have been volunteering in their community or giving to local charities. The holiday season seems to be the perfect time for these kinds of activities. But did you know that volunteering all year long can be healthy for you and good for your career? If you want to know how volunteering can be a great professional stepping stone for you, here are just a few reasons to consider giving back to your community starting today.

It can boost your mood and self-esteem.

Did you know that volunteering was good for your health? Studies have shown that giving back to your community can help improve your heart health and reduce overall stress. While you can volunteer out of purely selfless motivations, it never hurts to have some personal benefits.

You can learn new skills.

There will always be a need for people with the very talent you possess to pitch in for local organizations. No matter what it is that you do, someone needs you to do it. At the same time, like any job, there will be intricacies that require you to adjust your skills and learn new things along the way. This can be a great resume builder for the future.

You will meet new people.

While you’re working within the community, you’ll have a chance to meet others who share similar values. These are leaders in your area that you may not have any other opportunity to meet outside this context. Networking is a skill you should build at all times, and this is an easy way to make that happen.

You can really make a difference.

Of course, we can’t talk about philanthropy and volunteering without discussing the real, tangible benefits that you’ll be providing your community. Every little bit counts, so whether you are able to contribute a small sum of money or large amounts of your time, you will be able to help individuals and organization further their mission.

Is Temp-to-Hire Your Path to a Full-Time Job in 2018?

December 14th, 2017

If you’ve been in the job market you’re probably aware of temp to hire opportunities. But maybe you’ve been concerned about taking on a role like this because you’re uncertain how it would impact your career path. But there are many reasons to consider temp-to-hire. Before you kick off the New Year in 2018, consider these potential benefits to working with a staffing agency to find a temp-to-hire position for you.

It can lead to full-time work.

The ultimate goal of a temp-to-hire position is to lead to full-time work, but that doesn’t mean your work is done when you accept the job. The employer is using this time to evaluate your performance and experience to make sure you’re the right person for their permanent position. If you do a great job throughout the temporary portion, you will be offered that permanent position.

It gives you a chance to try out the job.

But the experience goes both ways. Temp-to-hire means that you also get to check out the company and the specific job to determine if it is right for you. If you have any concerns or hesitations, you can discuss it with your recruiter and work out a solution for the problem or terminate the assignment and look for something else.

It builds relationships with a recruiter.

Your recruiter becomes your employment partner. They can work with you to find the right position. If one doesn’t work out, you can use that experience to find a better match. But it will also build a long-term working relationship that can last into the future if you’re ever in the hunt for another position or you are in a position to hire for your new organization.

It can get you working faster.

Many companies approach a staffing agency before they advertise a position to the general public. This means when you are established with an agency you will hear about new positions before they are published online or through any other local channels. Your recruiter wants to have you working as quickly as possible so they will do what they can to ensure that you are not out of the job market for very long.
