will determine the move you make. How you value yourself as a Temporary around clients, when placed in a given business situation, can determine how you keep in or out of step with them.
When you start something, make sure that you're willing to take the time to finish it right because, honey, the work you put into it will be more than worth it in the end. The best things always are.
When you first accept the invitation to work for a client, you have been committed by your agent to keep up with their pace. The agent representing you has not necessarily known the clients expectations or taken into account your skill limitations. This is where a Temporary, who cares for both the agent and client, keeps ahead of the pace. An assignment can be a true eye opener into your character. Should you be placed in a role where you are expected to perform above your skill set, you either let your agent know, and rise to the challenge and sweat it out and succeed, or you let your agent know, and step down. Whichever option you take, this should determine your longetivity as a Temporay. Please do not use the excuse you are JUST A TEMP. Either skill up or get out, whichever one you choose, do not think of it as an easy option. A Temporary should be determined to be able to better fill a vacant seat, than leave businesses thinking it were better empty. When you doubt yourself remember, doubt brings about action. Choose to rise up to the challenge. Do not leave your seat unless the band marches to it's own tune. In my experience, I have learnt that many business armies will keep in step with you when you have proven your worth. They may even leave behind a guardsman to train you. You chose, through circumstances, to be a Temporary - your ability to work through today will determine your job title tomorrow. Respect your agent. Empower your client.
Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you're generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don't make.
