More employers and job seekers looking for flexible solutions are finding temporary work to be an excellent option. Working as a temp offers opportunities to stay productive and keep earning “in between” jobs. And it’s ideal for those who want the flexibility to work part- or full-time in a variety of settings.
While there’s no guarantee that a temporary job will turn into a permanent position, the potential is certainly there as more employers realize that hiring a temp allows them to try out a new employee before making a commitment.
For example, a company manager who was unable to find his ideal candidate decided to hire a temp for help with a new product launch. After the temp turned in several weeks of strong performance, he realized that she was actually the person he’d been searching for. Eager to create a full-time, permanent position if the right candidate ever came along, the manager made an offer and the temp accepted – a win-win for both.
