Review

Tim Whitney's Fast Track 50 is a must read for workers in the temporary work force and a must have for both temporary agencies and employers which use temp workers on a consistent basis. It is a true win/win/win pocket guide designed to improve the bottom line and to help temporary employees quickly attain permanent employment. --Jerry Dienes, VP of Recruiting and Consulting, GCS, LLC

Implement Tim Whitney's Fast Track 50 and watch your value rise to any company! And implementation means, I believe, that your temp days are only temporary, and permanent employment is waiting just around the corner! --Paul Frase, Retired NFL Player (Jets, Jaguars, Packers, & Ravens), Founder, The Joshua Frase Foundation, and Financial Services Partner, NY Life Insurance

The Fast Track 50 hits the nail on the head. I've been working with and hiring temps and people for over 30 years, and we'd all be more successful if we followed these ideas and words of wisdom. Your time to read this will pay you back 10-fold. Good luck on your career journey. --Paul Hill, Executive VP, Philosophy, Inc.

Yes, I should be nice to people when I don't feel like it and yes, I should show up to work on time every day.

This is the first kindle book that I read in the Cloud and I was glad I did because I was able to highlight all the great reminders for job seeking. I am not currently looking for a job but the 50 List is valuable to those of us who are self employed promoters as well. Small investment for a big impact.

Who doesn't love a pocket-guide that is actually motivational and useful? The Fast Track 50: The Get-Ahead Guide for Temporary Employees is an easy-to-read guide for temporary employees seeking permanent employment. Companies have a basic need called the bottom line, and you, my temp, are toeing it. Are you willing to learn what it takes to gain team-building skills and rise above the temp hire-fire cycle?

Break this cycle, starting by getting a copy of The Fast Track 50. By learning how to adapt to your work environment, you will become a valued member of a company, saving them time, aggravation, and money.

As a temp, you are competing with so many other temps. It is essential that you figure out how to get noticed by the very people who pay you. They are busy, overworked, and stressed out managers who likely won't have the time to train you. You need some insider tips that will propel you into not only permanent employment, but a career.

Tim Whitney knows what he's talking about. He's had plenty of experience in the workforce hiring, firing, coaching and working alongside temps. Currently a successful executive and international consultant, he too started out as a temp. He's basically a guru on the subject of what to do and what not to do if you want to stick around at a company.

It may seem simple, but the best work always does appear that way. Tips like, "Have an attitude of gratitude #17," or, "Keep time on your side #21," seem so basic. Yes, I should be nice to people when I don't feel like it and yes, I should show up to work on time every day. But, what exactly about being gratuitous matters, and why? How should I manage my time and does it really matter if I'm two minutes late? Don't over-think it.

Good book for workers in that situation. One downside from my point of view. There 50 tips in the book. I think they should be divided in areas like attitude and development of skills. The book would be more easy to consult.

Tim Whitney has taken the time to put into words what every prospective employee needs to know to move forward with their career propsects. By following the tips in this book, a candidate becomes a more marketable commodity. The candidate has a better appreciation for intangibles a company wants in an employee. Kudos on providing the industry something that has been missing for a long time.

Every man or woman that truly has a goal of improving the situation they find themselves in needs to read, understand, and apply the tips in this book. I have over twenty five years experience in manufacturing. I have been the person who hired and fired temps. I have been the temp looking for a way to get from temp to permanent.If you are a temp and follow the tips in this book to the best of your ability you will be much more likely to achieve your goal getting the job you want, and an opportunity to climb up the company ladder. If you are a temp agency that utilizes this book you will soon become the leader of the pack. Your high percentage of temp to permanent will become the envy of your competition.
