Temporary position with an agency. A positive temporary work experience.
Pros: assigned parking space.
Cons: 35 hour work week.
In April of 2013 OfficeTeam, an employment agency, sent me on an assignment to the University of Dayton. The assignment lasted one month. When the University of Dayton had a need in September 2013, for a clerical worker through the end of the fall term, once again they contacted OfficeTeam, and once again OfficeTeam placed me in the position. I was highly recommend by the UD team that I had supported back in April.
The assignment that I have from September, through the end of the fall term is relatively light, in that not many clerical skills are needed. What is needed is a high level of willingness to engage students and parents, to maintain FERPA (privacy standards), and to be consistent with front desk policy at a residential hall.
This has been a great temporary assignment, filled with the opportunity to connect with students from all corners of the world.
