Need some advice (recent graduate)
I know these posts are probably very repetitive at this point, but I need some advice.
I graduated in May from a top-50 non-target university with a 3.8 GPA in finance. I have a solid resume that I'd love to share for those interested. Throughout the school year I had interviews just about in every industry but IB. Had a number of interviews at top local FLDPs, one at GS for their AIMS group, and others at boutique consulting shops, tech sales and brokerage shops. Of course, I wouldn't be posting here if any of those interviews had resulted in an offer.
Here's my dilemma: I've been applying for jobs all around in my area and even since COVID as you may be able to imagine the jobs have been harder to come by. I recently was offered a position with a temp agency in the mortgage department of a regional bank in my area, the job pays $22/hr, but I know next to nothing about what I will be doing. Looking on LinkedIn, I feel that I would be overqualified for this role, and it's not something I would like to be doing long term. I'm assuming it will be back-office loan operations stuff.
Some extra cash would be nice right now, but I don't think that the role would give me any additional skills to my resume. Because of this, I'm hesitant about accepting this job. My biggest fear is being pigeon-holed in the role, given that it will be my most recent job. I'm also unfamiliar with the etiquette involved in a temp role: should I list this on my resume? - if I get a full time offer, am I free to leave this temp job whenever? Will recruiters look down on this experience?
Really appreciate the help guys. I'm really in a dillemma here and could use some advice.
P.S. if anyone know anyone hiring in the Boston area, I'd love to share my resume.
