    How to Find Meaning in a Job That Isn't Your "True Calling"

    Executive Summary Most people don't see their profession as a "calling." But they can still find meaning in their work by focusing on how it helps others. One strategy is to connect with end users or beneficiaries. Another is to focus on your organization's broad mission - whether it's serving cheap, delicious food or putting a man on the moon.

    I worked at OfficeTeam part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you show merit, they will find you jobs, and get you the best wages they can. Jobs are usually just the right level of challenging to keep one interested. They also accommodate a lot of specific requests, (for instance, I didn't want to work anything that dealt directly with customers, so they would find jobs more in the back office areas).

    Cons

    It's temporary work. At the end of one job, they'll try hard to find you another job ASAP, but sometimes there's just not one available for a few weeks. Other times, they'll get a job that needs to be filled *yesterday* so you can feel like you're dropping everything to get a job without much prep.

    Advice to Management

    None really, they do a great job overall for what kind of work they provide. I've never had to deal with a bad work environment through them, always got fair pay, and benefits are available even for part timers. Seems to me they're doing everything pretty close to right.
