5 Great Benefits of Temp Work
If you have been holding off signing up with a temporary agency, just look at some of the great benefits of temporary work.
You can earn extra money. Money is a great reason to take any job and temporary staffing is a wonderful way to bring in some extra income. Even if you have a full-time job or a full class schedule, you can probably find an assignment that meets your needs and fits within your time constraints.
Whether it’s working at a banquet on the weekends, or bartending at a New Year’s Eve gala, there are plenty of great jobs that pay good money to help you make ends meet. Temporary work allows you the freedom and flexibility to take advantage of all the opportunities thrown your way, while still earning a great income.
You can get your foot in the door. A big part of getting hired is being in the right place at the right time. Temporary assignments put you exactly where you need to be to demonstrate your skills and commitment. Many companies choose their full-time employees from their best temporary workers, so what starts out as a temporary position, could easily become permanent.
Being on the inside also gives you the edge when new job openings become available.
You can explore different opportunities. Not sure where you fit just yet? Temporary jobs are a great way to explore different positions to get a better sense of what you want to do in life. You can work in different industries, positions, and capacities, make money and gain great experience along the way. You can also get a great sense of what you definitely don’t want to do.
Expand your network. Networking can be a key success factor in the modern job market and temping is a wonderful way to expand your network, build contacts, and meet potential full-time employers.
Find joy in your work. Especially in the Hospitality industry, temporary assignments give individuals the chance to meet new people, experience new scenery, and take on more challenging tasks than staying in one position at one place all the time. According to a study in 2016, flexible workers were 21% more satisfied overall than your typical 9-5 employee and showed significantly less stress, worker harder and were more productive and were much happier in their work.
