If you are in between jobs, or travelling, then temping is a great way to earn some extra cash. There will always be a need for temporary staff; to cover last minute sick leave, annual leave or just to help out with an overflow of work during a busy period. Here, I outline the key benefits of temp work. Benefits of temp work A great benefit is that temp often becomes permanent. It’s a good opportunity for employers to take on somebody that they might not normally consider for a permanent role. Once they get in and are found to be a really good fit, a permanent contract may be offered. I should know – I was a temp to perm! Temp work is also great if you are the type of person who cracks under pressure during interviews – you’re already in and have the opportunity to show just what you can do. It’s a great way to develop your career and boost your resume. It gives you exposure to a variety of areas and shows that you have the ability to adapt to different working environments. Temp work also keeps gaps of unemployment off your resume. If you temp in between permanent jobs, you maintain your skillset and experience, making you more sought after by employers. Thus, there are immense benefits that can be gained from temp work.
