Temp Work to Full Time Position: Can You Dig It?

February 23, 2010

Can you dig turning a temp job into a full-time job? If so, read this…

In today’s economy it’s easier to land a temp job than a full-time position.  Simply, employers are scared and don’t want to face layoffs.  They are tough on both sides of the table.  So temps have become the new thing to do in small business.  You could land a temp job or already have a temp job and might want to make it a little more regular.

Well do this:

  • Fix problems: If you’re a temp or hope to be one, when you’re working, do more than you’re job description.
  • Connect: Meet people, become part of the team, and show why you’re valuable to the company.
  • Work smarter: We are all lucky to work if we can so be smarter.  Do the highest ROI tasks. Don’t waste time.

These are some simple tips and if you’re interested in reading more about turning a temp position into a full time gig check out this blog post from Anita Bruzzese

New ILostMyJob.com Podcast

January 20, 2010

We are offering two new podcast series for our community.  Monday News & Tuesday Tips.  Both will be released every week from us at ILostMyJob.com.

After listening to our members we’ve found people want a comprehensive news report made for job seekers.  The requirements were easy to digest information quickly and without the fluff of traditional news sources.

Monday News will give a weekly wrap up of major news stories.  Eliminating the need to keep a 24/7 channel on in the background.  Why watch the same news on repeat all day? This is a short pit stop for news.

Tuesday Tips give weekly suggestion, tip or piece of information regarding job search.  Whether you need a quick polish on your interview skills, wonder job sectors for growth or need to know how to file taxes during unemployment Tuesday Tips give you an outlet to find these answers.

Conversation is our goal for the community.  We love an input we receive and make sure to read every email. If you would like to offer a topic for us to cover or any area of interest, we would love to hear what you have.

We will have more information in the coming weeks as we unveil this and create access points for you.  Click here to write to us:  CONTACT US


Introduction of Tuesday Tips

December 26, 2009

We believe job search feedback is highly important during career transition. Experience maybe the best teacher but we believe the best substitute teacher is the best answer.  We at ILostMyJob.com over the year have received many questions and we wanted to be to answer questions and give advice to everyone.  We discussed it and decided to develop Tuesday Tips.  A fresh batch of tips every week for the community.   We believe teaching everyone to fish instead of simply feeding is the best strategy and it shows our belief in every person to  learn and achieve every day.

So we are building a library of questions and answers in our data base.  We will be releasing the answers as we receive questions.  If you or anyone you know in career transition and has a question or questions, please feel free to ask away.   These questions will be answered by our Career Doctor.

The link below will take you to a question forum that will be promptly received and read by our team of career experts.  We will make sure that you receive an email when we have a video answer for you.  Thank you in advance for your question and please tell any friends or family who you believe may benefit from us, in any way.
