Do you know about the 5 reasons to get a job through a staffing agency?
A recent NPR/Marist poll reveals that 1 in 5 American jobs are held by freelancers. That’s a lot, compared to past years.
Plus, temporary work gives you major advantages.
Get to Know the People and the Company Before You Commit
If you’re making a transition from one industry to another, then it’s especially helpful. But even within your current industry, you don’t really know what you need to know until you get inside.
Company culture is one of the greatest factors to influence employee satisfaction. And while you can tell a lot about an organization from the outside. Even by their presence in the community. Nothing beats spending time within the culture yourself.
Maximize Your Current Skills and Build a New Set
Both freelance and temporary jobs generally require a specific, narrow set of skills. So it will be easy to determine the best fit, based on the skills you’d like to showcase. Then, you’ll have an opportunity to maximize those skills in a unique setting.
It’s also likely you’ll be asked to pitch in with additional tasks. Ones that will likely require you to learn new things.
You now have more skills and experience to make your resume more robust.
Flexibility… Need we say more?
Typically, hours are flexible with part-time, temporary work. And sometimes full-time, too. So if you need to ensure you’ll have time to do other things, then temporary work could work for you.
Full-time Employment is a Possibility
Since you’ve already received training and you’re in house, it’s more likely that your temporary spot could turn into a permanent solution. If full-time work is your end-goal, then temporary could be a great start. Especially if you’re having trouble finding a job.
Someone Else Gets the Job For You
One of the most stressful parts of job hunting is perusing the endless job descriptions available.
So, the pre-employment heavy-lifting is already done!
