It’s no secret that, when it comes to temporary work, myths and misconceptions abound. If you are one of the many job seekers who usually scroll past temporary positions, here are a few reasons you should stop and reconsider:
- Autonomy and Flexibility. Temporary employment can be a great option for those of us juggling school, families, part-time work, or other commitments. Temp work sometimes carries more flexibility and autonomy, and can give you the freedom of choice that permanent positions often lack.
- Learn New Skills or Update Old Ones. Like internships, temporary positions offer the opportunity to gain skills and experience in a specific industry or position type. But unlike internships, temp work usually offers better compensation and perks and fits a broader age range.
- Try a Job Out. Last summer Forbes posted a great article about the pros of working with a staffing firm to find employment. The story highlighted the benefit of being able to try a company out to see if you’re the right fit for the job and the culture. Temporary employment is a two-way street that lets you and your employer sniff around each other a bit before committing.
- Surprising Earnings and Benefits. If you think temporary employment is only for low-paying, entry-level jobs, think again.
