Employers aren’t the only ones benefitting from temp jobs. If you work in a temporary job setting it can be a great way to dip your toes in the water. With your experience as a temp employee you can find out what it would be like to work in that organization, what its culture is like, the type of work you’d be doing and the people you’d be working with. It’s a two-way street, as employers can see how you perform and how you fit in, you also get to decide if it's the right environment and job choice for you!
Employers are very specific about finding the exact right person for a job. Many take the approach of hiring a potential employee on a temporary basis in order to evaluate the individual on the job. It can be viewed as an extended job interview. It may also be that the employer truly only needs temporary help but once they experience working with you may realize your value and choose to bring you on the team .
