Shakespeare penned the line, “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” But you can bid farewell to a temporary assignment without any regrets if you follow the suggestions below for ending your temp job. You’ll also set yourself up for future success! (take a look at our tips on what to do when your assignment ends.)
Wrap It Up
As you close in on your last day on the job, avoid “short-timer syndrome” by continuing to work hard rather than simply showing up. Make sure to tie up any loose ends and leave notes for anyone who might follow in your footsteps.
Huddle with Your Supervisor
Once you’ve finished any outstanding tasks, schedule a sit-down with your supervisor.

Let the Company Know If You’d Like to Work for Them Again
If you can, meet with the HR or hiring manager whose staffing request sent you their way. And if you really enjoyed your assignment and would like to work with the company again, make sure they know. They may think of you when their filling another temporary – or even permanent – position.
Get Ready for the Next Step
As you get ready to clock out for the last time, take a moment to update your resume. Add both the assignment you’re ending and any skills or accomplishments you’ve picked up while on the job. Then, contact your recruiter so you can chart a course for your next opportunity.
