If you live in an area that is popular among foodies, there may be a number of food fairs scheduled throughout the year. Often, it's possible to obtain temporary work at these events, which may last just a day, run over the course of a weekend, or perhaps take place for much of a week. Getting to work in this new and challenging environment can be rewarding for you — and it could also potentially lead to someone offering you a future opportunity, either in the form of more temp work, or maybe even a longer-term position. Here are some examples.
Work At The Restaurant You're Helping
When you get a temp position at a food fair, you'll commonly be assigned to help a specific restaurant that is taking part. Depending on your skills, you might be helping with food preparation, serving attendees, or simply welcoming people to the booth. Managers from the restaurant that you're helping will be in attendance, and you can bet that they'll be assessing their temporary help. If you prove yourself to be an asset, it's not unreasonable for a manager to ask you to assist with future food fairs or perhaps even join the restaurant's staff.
Work At A Different Restaurant
Just as restaurant managers are assessing their temporary staff at food fairs, you shouldn't be surprised to know that they're also assessing the staff members that aren't directly helping them. For example, if a manager from a different restaurant arrives in the area that you're working in and notices your friendly attitude or professionalism, he or she may look for you again during a quiet moment of the food fair and ask about having you help him or her in the future.
Work At Future Food Fairs
Those who run the food fair will also be assessing the temporary help. Often, temp workers play a critical role in the success of any event, and if one of the organizers sees that you're clearly being an asset to the food fair, he or she may express an interest in having you assist at future events. Or, it's also possible that a manager with whom you work speaks highly about you to one of the event's organizers. Those who oversee the food fair might also run other types of events in the community, so it's possible that you could end up with a number of consecutive temporary positions, all because of your performance at this one.
