How Flexible Are YOU?
Staying flexible isn't just sound physical advise; mental flexibility is the key to
remaining a successful temporary associate. For example, the more flexible your
schedule, the more likely you are to get that "choice" assignment. That means
keeping your schedule open, your answering machine on and checking it frequently.
If you have a beeper, keep it on and make sure your Account Executive has the
number. Staying in contact with your AppleOne Account Executive is the key to
landing the kinds of positions you are looking for.
But being flexible doesn't stop there. As a temporary associate on assignment, you
are one of the most flexible people around. You are able to change duties,
responsibilities, supervisors, even locations at a moment's notice.

flexible employee. Remaining flexible will open doors you might not have previously
