I know, a lot of us have been out of work for a long time. Some of us have had part time jobs but all of us are hunting for that elusive full time job that will give us benefits! I never appreciated my health benefits so much until I didn't have them! So where to look for work?
If you live in Delaware County, try Monarch, and temp agency in Springfield PA. The women who run it are great about placing you and the great thing about temping... it can evolve into a full time job. There are plenty of other agencies out there, just not ones I have personal experience with. It will also depend on your skill set, some are in bigger demand than others.
What does a temp job give you? Current work experience and a new reference! Golden in this age of long term unemployment! So give it a try!
Need to brush up on job skills? Why not head out to Delaware County Community College? They offer regular classes for credit but also have adult education classes too. Don't leave any stone unturned, sometimes you need to update your skills in order to be more marketable! Happy Hunting!
