July – The Month of Freedom Rings


July brings us cookouts, family time, and the reminder of our freedom in the form of the 4th of July celebrations.  If you are currently in the market for new employment, consider the amount of freedom associated with temporary work.  Now is a great time to find work that fits into a flexible schedule AND gives you the opportunity to try out a few different things.  

But temporary work?  Isn’t that risky?  First, let’s talk about what kind of work may fall into this category.  

Temporary Work: One of the most common types of positions staffing providers, such as LaborWorks fill are temporary positions. These are jobs that typically have a defined start and end date and are not for those looking for a predictably steady routine, as assignments often change. Some jobs that typically fall into this category are general labor positions in warehouses, on job sites, machine operator positions within manufacturing facilities, call center representatives, landscaping positions, and general clerical and administrative positions.  These are great jobs for job seekers looking for variety in an effort to find what fits best for the long term. Picking up temporary employment in a variety of workplaces will give any employee  a view from the inside, which can be helpful when seeking out permanent employment further down the line.  

Temp-to-Hire: Temp-to-hire positions are those that will transition from a temporary assignment to a permanent position, as the employer gauges the abilities of the employee. These types of positions are often the most common that a staffing provider will fill and include jobs such as assemblers, forklift operators, delivery drivers, installation specialists, hospitality professionals, sales representatives, and more.  Temp-to-Hire work is a great way for both the employer and the employee to get to know the environment, the company culture, and the work itself.  It’s a temporary situation that can have long term benefits, should that be the mutual goal.  

Temporary work can be a wonderful option for individuals looking for work without the ability to commit to a workplace for the long term.  Temporary work is not lesser than permanent employment and there is always a need for it.  Ready to find your next job?
