When you are unemployed and your job search lasts longer than you expected, you may try temporary
work. Not only is temping a great way to earn some extra money, a temp job may also lead to a
permanent job further down the road. But turning a temporary job into a permanent one isn't easy.

There's No Such Thing as 'Just a Temp':
Some temporary workers treat their jobs as if the work is somehow different from permanent work
which is a big mistake if you want to land a permanent job at that company. If you want to join the
company on a permanent basis, you need to act as if you already are a permanent employee. So always
perform at the best of your abilities.

You Are What You Wear:
Just as no one should be able to guess from the quality of your work that you're a temporary worker,
your appearance shouldn't give you away either.
It's tempting for temp workers to think they can dress more casually since they sometimes feel that less
is expected of them. Know what the company's standard dress code is before you start your job and
always adhere to the dress code, even when you feel that others may not be paying attention to your
attire for graphic designer objective. You should always dress to the level of job you are aspiring to next.

Get People to Know You:
It's crucial that you network and meet as many people as possible. Make your face known by being
friendly and sociable. Don't be intimidated to speak to those who are permanent staff since after all,
these may be your future permanent coworkers.

There's a bonus in forging relationships with permanent workers: If you start meeting people, not only
will you feel more comfortable at work, you may also make a friend who has some clout to help bring
you on permanently.
Don't Live by the Clock:
If you want to be considered for a permanent job, you should be willing to do a bit of extra work to
prove it.
Tip: Before you leave at the end of the day, ask your supervisor if they have everything they need. This
will show you're willing to stay a bit longer to get the job done.
