We would like to provide you with some facts about temporary employment to help clear things up. Here are five common misconceptions about temporary jobs brought to light.

1. Temp Jobs Have Low Pay Rates

Not all temporary jobs pay minimum wage. Some temp jobs require great skill, trades or certifications, and sometimes years of experience. Temporary jobs with these requirements often have high pay rates.

2. Temp Jobs Offer No Stability

Don’t be deterred by the word “temporary”. Temp jobs could go on for a long period of time. Sometimes temporary jobs go on for months at a time. It all depends on what the company requires.

Many of Liberty Staffing’s jobs are temporary to permanent opportunities. This means that you will have the ability to showcase your skills and talents in the workplace in a temporary setting with the hopes of being permanently hired on later. At Liberty Staffing Services, one of our greatest successes is when assignment employees get hired on permanently with clients.

3. Temp Jobs Have No Merit on a Resume

Are you crazy?! Temporary employment is great to put on your resume. Temporary jobs can show potential future employers your flexibility and hard work ethic. Not only that, but temp jobs will showcase your variety of skills and professional experience working in different fields.

4. Temp Jobs are Entry Level Positions

This is not always the case. Temporary jobs can vary from entry level positions to mid-level opportunities. It all depends on the company and what they are looking for.

5. Temp Jobs Lead to Dead Ends

You may think that temporary jobs are dead end opportunities, but this is simply not true. Temporary jobs provide networking opportunities, just like any other employment opportunity. A temp job will offer you the ability to meet new people and make new connections.
