Why temp works when you’re looking to get back to work

Whether you're looking to stay in temporary roles or find a permanent position, starting with a temporary job can get you on track for the long term.

People leave the workforce for all types of reasons: to care for loved ones, to be a stay-at-home parent, or to attend school. There are also those who don't leave by choice but get laid off or let go. No matter the reason, many people at any given moment are seeking to rejoin the workforce, and quickly.

Whether you're looking to return to the workforce after an extended absence, or having worked in the same role for a long time, many people lack the confidence to search for jobs on their own, especially in the relatively new era of the online job search.

Recruiters who work at temporary staffing firms will not only help their associates get new jobs, but can help them spruce up their resume, practice for job interviews, and build their online reputations to help boost their job hunting success in the future. 

In addition to getting valuable career advice, working with a temporary staffing agency is a great answer for quickly finding work. Quality staffing firms have numerous job openings to fill immediately (and don't get misled by the common myths around temp work).
