Ashley, I've heard of companies where you need a referral to apply. I guess that is where temping will come in handy. You will have the opportunity to meet people who can refer you. You do not need a referral to apply for my company, but having one increases your chances considerably.
I hope to avoid the ice bucket challenge. My BIL did one while his wife recorded it. He did not mention the purpose and didn't challenge anyone. He did it for his business saying, "*his company* accepts the ice bucket challenge" and his DD dumped the water on him. He may not know that ALS was involved at all! The best part was at the end my SIL said, "Oh no! I forgot to press the record button." Of course, she did, but his reaction was priceless.
