The Highs And Lows Of Temping by VICKY HENDRON

The Highs And Lows Of Temping


The Highs And Lows Of Temping by VICKY HENDRON

Set in London, The Highs and Lows of Temping is a true life account of a Spanish Language Graduate who leaves her dead end job as an Administrator for Social Services and resorts to the world of temping as a means to try and find her ideal job. Temping takes on a rollercoaster of events: working with an evil Irish woman at a West London Solicitor's Practice; a bankrupt lighting company run by the Boss from hell; a role as a Film Extra for Charlie and The Chocolate Factory; a Secretary at a Middle Eastern Embassy; and a PA to an exceptionally wonderful Boss at a charitable organization; are just a few of the real life situations which she encounters. If you have ever temped or are daringly considering to do so, this book is an essential read; it's funny in that it ridicules the poor attitude and behaviour that temps so often receive from recruitment agencies and companies.
