Are you in search of a new job? Many of us are! COVID-19 has led to layoffs in many industries caused by the mandatory shutdown of some businesses. Our economy had a bit of a recession.  

But now, as things start to re-open after the shutdown, businesses are in need of new workers. And one way that’s popular to get people back onto the payroll is by hiring temporary workers. It helps companies get valuable tasks done and keep business moving.  

If you’re looking for a new job, you may be apprehensive to try a temporary job. But they offer plenty of advantages.  

Try out a new role 

First of all, many employers hire temporary workers on a trial basis. And if you do a good job, they extend the offer of full-time employment. This helps you because you can do the same thing—evaluate a job to be sure it’s right for you! This is an opportunity you just don’t get when you’re hired directly.  

Add to your resume 

Let’s say you try a temporary job, it comes to an end and the employer doesn’t offer you a full-time position. Well, that’s OK! You just gained valuable experience to add to your resume and you can go back out, tack on another temporary job and keep on moving! As you gain more work experience, your resume gets stronger and stronger.  

Try something you’re curious about 

What if you’ve been wanting to change industries or see what a different job is like? If you accept a temporary position, you can try something new, or at least get your foot in the door at a new company. If you do well, you could be hired full-time and then work your way up. You just never know what can happen! 

Lots of opportunity 

Finding a temporary or temp-to-hire job and working with a recruiter is a great next step in your career. You can learn new things, gain work experience and build a valuable professional partnership. Your recruiter is in your corner and will work with you to understand your career goals and find opportunities that fit.
