Have You Ever Wondered What Temping Can Do For You?
Here are the facts:
Variety is the spice of Life
Depending on your assignment length, you're able to experience a variety of work, meaning you can gain a vast amount of experience in a relatively small amount of time. In a little less than a year's time, a temp worker can have temporary jobs at many very different companies. When you're not 100% sure where you'd like to work, having the luxury of "moving around" gives you the opportunity to experience various work settings.
You're a Free Agent
Working as a temp allows for more freedom. Even when you're placed somewhere temporarily, the temp agency is considered your employer. Therefore, you're not necessarily required to adhere to certain policies of the company you're temping for. That's not to say you don't have to follow the dress code or general privacy/legal policies, but you don't have to worry about personal time off, sick days, etc. Simply put, if you don't work, you don't get paid.
A Great Social Life
Temping equals networking. Building on first impressions, working different temp assignments puts your name out there. The company may not be looking to put you on their payroll permanently, but at least they'll have you in mind. Very often, companies will hire temps and interns because they've seen them in action. Consider your short-term work as an audition for a bigger role.
Temping through an agency gives you the opportunity to get some really big, household names on your CV, meaning their brand identity will do the talking for you. A lot of Class 1’s temp jobs are entry level, meaning you can get your foot on the career ladder without having to worry about committing to long-term contracts, which may not be right for you.
