In this economy, temporary or contract work can often be a bridge to full-time, career worthy employment. Whether your work attire collar is blue or white – or if you are a rookie entering the workforce for the first time, you need the inside scoop in order to survive and thrive in the temporary workforce. These important tools can empower you for success and help you distinguish yourself in a competitive talent pool.
Lucky for you, a new pocket sized resource is jam packed with useful information that will help you succeed. Tim Whitney is a Dallas executive, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author. His latest book, The Fast Track 50- The Get-Ahead Guide for Temporary Employees combines his 22+ years of senior leadership experience with temporary employees along with team-building science. It is part of a bigger initiative to bring low cost training, E-Learning, and mentoring to the temporary employment industry called www.TipsForTemps.com and for the full time employee.
Tim is a master at showing you how to avoid the temp treadmill so you can take your short-term job and ride the career escalator upwards. His Fast Track 50 Tips are savvy, easy to implement, and designed to give you a competitive edge. By developing memory tags, Tim shows you exactly how and when to implement these strategies in your temp work environment.
While the book is geared primarily at temps seeking full time employment, the FT 50 really is a great basis for anyone seeking: and entry level position, a new job, or a new career. The reasons are simple – these 50 attitudes, actions, and behaviors help the person quickly fit in (Tim calls it ‘Teaming’) with an existing workforce. One of the biggest things going against entry level folks or people changing careers is the ability to fit in with an existing workforce as part of the team. Tim’s MBA is in Team Building and strongly plays into the methodology and simplicity of this new book/pocket guide.
