5_Great_Reasons_to_Accept_a_Temporary_JobMany job seekers cringe at the word "temporary". There's a certain stigma related to the word. While many believe temporary jobs to mean moving from one job to another on a daily basis, this is actually not true. Many temporary roles can be ongoing, and can last months, or even years. 

Liberty Staffing offers temporary and permanent opportunities. Obtaining permanent employment might be your main goal, but we would like to offer you some insight into why you should consider taking on a temporary position. After all, temporary jobs offer many great benefits. We have a lot of great temporary opportunities that we don't want you to miss out on. 

Looking for a job? Let Liberty Staffing connect you to the jobs you want. Apply  today!

The next time that you are offered a temporary position with Liberty Staffing, we hope the following pros will outweigh the cons. Here is a list of 5 great reasons why you should accept a temporary job with Liberty Staffing.

1. Not Just General Labour Positions

There is a common misconception when it comes to temp work. Many believe that temporary work is only offered in general labour positions. This is not true. While yes, Liberty Staffing offers temporary general labour work, we also have many great job opportunities in the office sector. 

We have office work available for a couple of  weeks, for some months, and for covering a maternity/paternity leave, etc. Temporary office work is a great a way to get your foot in the door, especially if you're a recent graduate needing to build up your experience, or if you're returning to the workforce after some time spent away. 

If you are a job seeker looking for work in Data Entry, Accounting, Bookkeeping, Customer Service, or a Reception role, we would be happy to assist. All that you have to do is apply with us to get started. 

2. Gain New Skills

Temporary jobs allow you to gain a variety of new skills in a short amount of time. For example, you may be working as a Packager for a couple of weeks, and then as a Receptionist a month later. Whatever the role, you will always gain new professional experiences and skills with each new position.

Don't forget to add all of your temporary work to your resume. Temporary jobs will illustrate that you can be a Jack of all trades. 

3. Work While You Wait for Something Permanent

It is better to accept a temporary job instead of waiting for a permanent opportunity to come along. If you are strictly looking for permanent work only, you may be waiting a while for something to come up. You don't want to be in the waiting game for long, as your bank account will suffer. 

Also, employers are more likely to hire candidates who already have a job and are presently out in the workforce. Taking on temporary work while you wait for something permanent shows employers that you are hardworking, and adaptable.

Not only that, but temporary work will fill in those time gaps in your resume. 

4. Earn Some Extra Money

Bottom line may be that you just need to earn some extra money while you are between permanent positions, and that's okay! Temporary work is a great way to earn some extra cash here and there. A temporary job will help pay the bills, even if the assignment is only for one day. Accepting a temporary job for one day to earn some money is better than declining a job and receiving no money. 

5. May Lead to Permanent Employment

Any temporary position has the potential to become permanent. A temporary job is what you make it. 

At Liberty Staffing, we've had many instances where an employer has asked to hire on a temporary associate. This is great! We love when this happens. Our ultimate goal is for our temporary employees to obtain a job that they love, and for it to become a permanent position is even better. 

If you work hard, have a positive attitude, and arrive on time to your temporary job, you are sure to leave a good impression on the employer.
