(10 Ratings)
Price: $3.92
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.

    "Highs and Lows of Temping Reveiw" This gives a true insight and account of life as a temp in London today. The total disregard of temps as human beings, merely comodities that can be moved around, hired and fired at will. The work colleagues encountered are typical characters that you'd expect to meet in the office world of London. Many are uncaring and narrow minded. Let this be instructional to those thinking of becoming a temp it and let it be nostalgic or reminicent for those who want to remind themselves of the hell they went through as jobbing office workers soliciting themselves for work with companies in London.

    "Re Highs and Lows of Temping" Well done Vicky on getting your first book published! I have known about her book pretty much since the early days and have enjoyed hearing about it's growth over the last two years; having been fortunate enough to even have a sneek preview of it last year before the final published edition (which I have loyally downloaded and look forward to picking up where I last left off) - I'm sure it was worth the wait. I'm very proud that Vicky has turned some very negative experiences into a very positive one with this book! Not only will it help her in her quest (one door closes but another opens) but it will also be invaluable to other people finding themselves in the same situation (which unfortunately is becoming the 'norm' these days). I was made redundant twice in the last 6 years although have luckily managed to stay out of the temping game but should I ever find myself down that road, at least I now have the knowledge and advice to help me with... More > what I would be getting into. I look forward to the next installment Vicky...what ever that may be :-)< Less
