As the pandemic wears on, more Americans continue to find themselves out of work. For millions of workers, temporary work has offered the promise of a paycheck as we wait for the economy to recover. If you’re looking for a way to keep the lights on until something better comes around, temporary work can sound like an ideal solution.

In this post from One-Tech Engineering in Minnesota, our technical recruiters will break down some of the biggest advantages and disadvantages of temporary work. Give us a call to find out how we can help you get back to work with contract or direct hiring today!

Advantages of Temporary Work

If you’re a technical or engineering professional and you’re on the job search, you don’t want to take a job that lowers your value or derails your resume. At the same time, you have to keep your bills paid. A temporary job gives professionals the chance to get back to work right away without leaving a resume gap that causes problems down the road. It also gives you an income while you continue to search for something that’s better suited for your professional goals.

Here are a few more advantages when taking a temporary position:

●        Temporary work often leads to a more permanent position by giving employers a chance to see how your contributions add to their organization. At One Tech, we partner with local firms to offer contract-to-direct hiring.

●        It gives you a chance to test out a firm or a position before making a commitment.

●        Temporary work allows you the opportunity to expand your contacts and grow your skills.

●        Some temporary jobs come with benefits. At One Tech Engineering, we offer a complete benefits package including health insurance.

Temporary or Contract Work

More employers are choosing to hire consultants over traditional temps. Whereas temp jobs typically last less than a month, getting hired as a consultant may lead to a longer commitment with more opportunities. Technical and engineering firms work with technical recruiters to fill staff vacancies and workload spikes with short-term consultants. This gives employers access to skilled professionals while keeping their overhead low. A technical recruiting firm connects the organization with the best talent, giving consultants the chance to grow professionally without losing benefits or income.
