Why Students and Graduates Should Do Temp Work in London
Posted on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 by The Career Guide — No comments
2020 is shaping up to be another excellent year for temporary jobs in London. That’s why we’d like to share with final-year students and recent graduates why temping in London can be a great start to your career. It’s certainly not settling for second best or a stuttering start. In fact, using the right recruitment agencies in London, such as Love Success, temping opportunities can be just the career springboard you need. We’re not just saying it because now is a slightly harder time for securing permanent positions either. Just take a look at some of the benefits of doing temporary jobs in London…
- It’s rocket fuel for your skills
Your university years have no doubt boosted your academic skills. However, chances are that your work opportunities have been more focused on flexibility and stashing cash than on the skills they develop. By actually doing the job, you’ll learn so much more and learn it fast.
Whether you just want to pad out your CV with some genuine workplace experience or you need to narrow down what you’d like to do with your future, then temping in London is a brilliant solution. From admin to people skills, you’ll get the experience under your belt.
- Get to know London, get to know people
Perhaps this is your first time in London but you don’t know where to start? Maybe you’ve been trawling London recruitment agencies and don’t know how to find ‘the one’? Temp work in London doesn’t just get you in the door; it also gets you in the know. You’ll be in a prime position to network, learn about the market, and hone your own candidate skills.
- That’s right, your candidate skills
Your career isn’t just a case of having a CV jam-packed with juicy qualifications, skills, and experience relevant to the job. You also need to learn how to be a candidate who succeeds. It doesn’t just happen. Learning how to craft your CV, manage your nerves at interviews, and really sell yourself to a recruiter are skills you’ll need throughout your life. By getting them under control by temping at the start of your career, you’ll get a fantastic headstart.
- Try before you buy
For every graduate already confident in their chosen career path, we can assure you there are half a dozen others who don’t have a clue what they want to do. You can read all the career guides you like, even speak to careers advisors, but the only genuine way of finding out whether you’ll like a certain industry or role is to give it a go. At this stage, there’s no wasted experience, even if one temping placement does nothing more than teach you what you don’t want to do!
- Take your time for the real stuff
Even if you know exactly what your dream career is, perhaps you can’t pursue it just yet. Maybe you need money behind you? Or some wider skills you don’t yet have? Temping in London as a graduate is a great way to support yourself while you pursue other things, or even get the travelling bug out of your system.
