Benefits For Employees A professional temp agency will put in the effort to place you in a job, even in a difficult job market. A temporary job can be a foot in the door that leads to a more permanent position, and can help broaden a worker's range of experience and expertise.

Reasons for Working For a Temp Agency

Job seekers have many reasons for taking a temporary job. These can include:

  1. The prospective job is usually available as a temporary or ‘seasonal’ job
  2. The job seeker prefers temporary work to a permanent job
  3. A temporary job is all the job seeker can find in their local job market or field, at the current time.

All of these are valid reasons for choosing to work for a temp agency. If you have been unemployed for more than 6 months, a temporary job can be your best option.
