Summer Temp Jobs May Be the Right Fit for You!

Summer temp jobs

Are you a teacher who wants to make a little extra income this summer? A new grad wanting to explore the Indy job scene? A student looking for internship credits? That’s Good HR has something for everyone with our summer temp jobs and temp-to-hire assignments. The summer months are the perfect time to try out a temporary assignment (or a few!) and get to know more about the thriving industries and top employers here in Indianapolis!

Temping as a teacher for the summer

As a teacher or school employee, one of the biggest perks is having your summers off. But whether you’re wanting to earn some extra cash or just getting bored, many teachers take on “gigs” during the summer. But you don’t have to take on the odd hours of driving for Uber or delivering for DoorDash. Temporary positions have an unfounded reputation for being entry-level or grunt work positions, but That’s Good HR has a number of temporary assignments in local offices and organizations that will allow you to maintain a full- or part-time job with dependable hours and great perks during your summer off. 

And after the extreme stress of the past few school years, many educators are considering joining “The Big Quit,” and our temp jobs are the perfect chance to check out other industries to see if something else may be the perfect fit for your skill set. A temporary assignment could also reinvigorate your love for the classroom and teach you new skills to bring back to school this fall! 

Trying summer temp jobs after graduation

Did you just graduate from college? Congratulations! If you are still looking for your first career — or want to explore your options before committing to a company — then a temp or temp-to-hire position may be the right fit for you. We work with many new grads to find the best assignments for their education and skills. Summer temp jobs can allow you to try out a variety of careers, and temp-to-hire can do the same, but with the added potential for full-time hiring at the end of your assignment. 

As our previous client Jessica Jordan explained, “Being able to work in different fields has been wonderful, especially when I was first starting my career and figuring out what career path I wanted to take. With That’s Good HR, I have worked in healthcare, IT, retail and construction. The companies I worked with were great, and I really enjoyed my coworkers.”

Working a temp job as an internship

Our hiring specialists have also worked with current students to turn their temp job into an internship. Students can look specifically for temp assignments in our open jobs, and you’ll only have to apply once through That’s Good HR! Let us know about the specifics of your internship program/needs, and we’ll review your resume with all open temp positions in mind. 

With permission from your college or professors, your internship credits can be signed off by our hiring specialists, and you’ll have all the benefits of a real-life temp assignment as your internship experience. Enjoy networking with local employers, work directly with a staffing specialist on your interview skills and learn more about the Indy job scene. And if you make a good impression at your temp assignment, there could be a good chance that they’ll keep you in mind for full-time positions once you graduate!
