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.
