Temp Jobs Can Be Great Opportunities

Temp jobs are also a great way to regain permanent staff positions in your industry and explore moving to careers in areas where you don’t have professional experience.

According to recently reported statistics, temporary employment rose 28% between 2010 and 2013 and 42% of employers have plans to hire temporary or contract workers in 2014. What’s more, 43% of those companies plan to transition some temp workers into permanent staff positions.

Temp Jobs Can Create Permanent Job Satisfaction

Below is a list of some of the fastest-growing temp jobs in 2014. Maybe you’ll see yourself in the list. A word of caution though: If you choose to go the temp / contract job route, be a bit selective in the agencies you work with. Choose those that really understand what you’re comfortable doing rather than randomly signing on with multiple firms.
