    When to leave my PT job for a Temp one?

    When to leave my PT job for a Temp one? 13th Mar 17 at 10:55 AM
    I'm in my 3rd and final year at uni and I'll have finished in mid-may. I work part time 2 days a week and have to give 4 weeks notice (worked there 4 years).
    I'm in a dilemma over what is best to do, do I stay and wait until I get a temp job to hand my notice in? Or do I hand it in mid April with the hope I get one straight away. Many of the temp jobs I've seen require an immediate start which isn't really feasible with my part time jobs as the days change slightly each week and I've seen my manager be quite crappy when other staff have had 2 jobs so I don't want the stress of doing 2 jobs at once.

    The other option is I take a permanent job but then I'd feel bad when I hand my notice in in September as I'm leaving the area then.

    Has any one had this choice to make before? Are temp jobs easy to get as a graduate? or do they go to people without degrees more?

    Hand your notice in and with 1 week left of your notice start looking for temp jobs.

    Ive seen jobs actually ask for graduates along with other potential employees so temp jobs can be easy to get.
