Temporary jobs can be an unexpected solution!
It can be difficult to find a job that fits all of your criteria, and never mind the interviewing, negotiating, and onboarding processes, which can take forever and divert your attention from important tasks. Even then, the more traditional approach may not suit all of your needs. You might find that a temporary job is a better fit for your lifestyle, whether you need more flexibility in time off, an affordable benefits option, or an easy way to pick up a few extra dollars for the holidays. But how can you pick up one of those temporary positions in the first place?
Employment agencies and staffing specialists can help! Recruiters are always looking for dependable, communicative candidates, those who can show up on time and do the job asked of them. You can work in an office, a warehouse, the outdoors, a shelter for the unhoused, a vaccine distribution location–there are businesses all over the country who need the assistance of temporary employees. There’s always a job available when you need it, and at Openwork we know where those openings are in your area.
With a temporary job, you have flexibility and options you can’t achieve with a traditional work contract. Temporary positions are a great fit for those who are ready to shift their interests, or want to try new things; they can require very little experience and teach you a wide range of skills. When you pair temporary jobs with a great recruiter, the sky's the limit of what you can do together! Openwork staffing specialists do it right: we meet with each candidate, go over all of the open positions that might fit their skills and experience, and then match them up with the right opportunities.
Recruiters are great to have on your team for many reasons–it’s always good to have backup support with site managers, for example. And when you’re working full time hours with an employment agency, you can even receive health, vision, and dental benefits. Plus, flexibility doesn’t just mean it’s easy to change your shift or assignment; it also means there are opportunities to earn extra funds at the times you might need it the most.

You might even consider a temporary job for a side hustle–weekend shifts and overnight shifts are always available. The production, manufacturing, and other supply chain industries hire temporary workers for all kinds of reasons–to fill short term vacancies like parental leave, to bolster a peak productivity period, or to reduce the amount of requested overtime for their full time employees, according to Liberty Staffing in California.

But that’s not all. A temporary job with a staffing company like Openwork can give you peace of mind when the global economy feels like a storm. Business Insider reports that large corporations like Peloton, Shopify, Netflix, and now Twitter are laying off relatively large numbers of their workforces, leaving thousands of people without means to support themselves. Temporary opportunities available in administrative and clerical positions can help when you need a job fast, giving you a better sense of security when you’re seeking the next step.
