6 Advantages of Temporary Work

May 16th, 2017

Struggling to find a new job? Don’t want to tie yourself down to one industry yet? Temporary work may be the answer. Here are 6 advantages you can gain from it:

#1: You can try out jobs before committing.

Temporary work gives you a great opportunity to try out different positions, fields, and types of companies on a temporary basis. As a result, you can get a better sense of which jobs and employers really resonate with you – and pursue full-time opportunities with those. Also, if you’re working in an assignment you love and a full-time job opens up, you’ll already know you’re a good fit for it.

#2: You can build up your experience.

Is your resume a little light? Are you returning back to the workforce after years away? Temporary jobs in Spokane provide an ideal way to beef up your resume. Not only can you enhance your existing skills, but you can also gain new ones in the process. As a result, when you do go to apply to full-time jobs, you’ll have a far more impressive background to promote.

#3: It fills gaps in your resume.

Having gaps on your resume looks bad to potential employers. Even if you were laid off from a position due to downsizing, an extended gap can still set off warning bells. Fill your resume, instead, with temporary work.

#4: It expands your network.

With each new assignment, you’ll be meeting many different people that can help you in your career aspirations. So always be respectful, professional and friendly wherever you go. Also, stay in contact with those you met at previous temporary assignments. You never know when the next great opportunity will come your way.

#5: You can access assignments with competitive pay.

It’s a myth that temporary work doesn’t pay well. Reputable employers will offer fair market value for your skills. So you can keep your schedule flexible, all while earning a steady income with temporary work.

#6: You can get career tips from experts.

Most temporary assignments are filled through an employment agency. When you sign on with one, they’ll match you with an experienced recruiter who can help you in the short-term in finding assignments that are a good fit for you, but also in the long-term with professional development.
