Why Temp Works When You’re Looking to Get Back to Work

Whether looking to stay in temporary roles or find a permanent position, starting with a temporary job can help you get there.


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 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. The solution? A staffing agency.

Recruiters who work at temporary staffing agencies will not only help their candidates 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.
