A flexible schedule is often just as valuable or even more so than a particular salary figure. Whether you have obligations that prevent you from settling for a long-term job position with one employer, or you simply desire a work-life balance, temporary employment may be the right fit for your needs. Learn more about how temp work can give you more flexibility:
No Long-Term Commitment
Temp work allows you to take on opportunities if and when they work for your needs because they have limited durations. Since you don’t have to make any long-term commitments, you can choose to take on assignments as sporadically or often as you choose. This may be particularly helpful if you need flexibility during certain time periods, such as during the summer when your children are out of school, for example. As an added benefit, not having to commit to a particular employers allows you to determine what you want in a job, so you are in a better position to make informed decisions if you opt to eventually go back into full-time work.
Set Your Availability
There are a wide variety of temp work opportunities out there across industries. Whether you want part-time hours, shift work, or a standard 9-5 schedule, you can set your availability and find a temp opportunity that aligns with your schedule preferences. If your availability changes regularly because of personal circumstances, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of constantly asking for time off and putting your performance at risk like you would if you were working a permanent role.
Prevent Resume Gaps
Often people feel like they have to completely leave the workforce for an extended period of time when their personal obligations don’t allow for full-time work. Unfortunately, once you are not working for a while, it can be challenging when you want to return because you don’t have recent work experience. Temp work prevents resume gaps and allows you the flexibility to stay in the workforce in a way that works for you without causing you stress in the future.
