Benefits of Temporary Work in Unsteady Economic Times


The U.S. economy broke out of its hiring slump in July as employers added 163,000 jobs, the Labor Department reported Friday. Although this is more than twice the job growth in the previous month, employers are remaining skeptical to add permanent employees without more assurance that growth will stay steady. Many of these company owners and executives are turning to the temporary workforce to help keep costs down and productivity up. If you’re looking for a full-time job and haven’t had much luck, you may want to consider taking a temporary position. Even if your long-term goals are to land a secure full-time position, working in the temporary workforce has several benefits:

  • Gives you a foothold into a company and industry
  • Provides networking opportunity and learning experiences
  • Offers possibility of transitioning into a full-time job
  • Provides flexibility and options to sample a wide array of jobs
  • Strengthens your resume through experience and education
  • Provides a source of income
  • Offers you the possibility of transitioning into a full-time job
