Job search advice: How to get a new job with a temporary staffing firm in 2014
As 2013 closes, there are great opportunities to end the year working with a temporary staffing firm, says workplace experts from Robert Half, a staffing firm with a wide variety of employment opportunities in finance and accounting, management, legal, technology, office/administrative and creative/digital.
As you head into a job search to close out the year - or to start a new year in 2014, keep these tips in mind, says Susan Thomas, Regional Vice President with Robert Half.
"As companies prepare for year-end we see a number of temporary opportunities arise in the final weeks of the year, particularly in accounting/finance and administrative support," says Thomas. "As organizations look to close out their books, clear backlogs and get ready for the New Year we see strong demand for AP/AR staff, staff and senior accountants, bookkeepers, medical billers and coders and financial analysts. Tax professionals are also highly sought after this time of year as people prepare for tax season. On the administrative side, we’re seeing strong demand for executive and administrative assistants to support special project, call center managers and customer service representatives."
