The Benefits of Temping for Alliance Recruitment
Alliance Recruitment is a national company, so if you are moving interstate we offer a wide range of offices and services that will be able to assist you. So now you can take your employer with you!
In addition, if your idea of a good job is one that doesn’t go too long, then temping offers you the flexibility to complete one assignment and have a break before you commence your next one.
A foot in the door
The greatest benefit to you as a temporary employee is that temping gets you inside the door. Companies usually need temps to cover leave or unexpected peaks in workloads. Once you are on the inside, you have tremendous advantages. You can explore a new company and learn about a new industry. You can meet new people you otherwise would probably have never met.
Gateway to Permanency
A foot in the door and excellent performance on the job can even lead to the offer of a permanent job within that company. The ‘Try Before You Buy’ concept allows you to make sure that this is a field you would like to make your career. They may even create a role especially for you!
Getting paid for every hour you work whilst learning new skills and industries
Think of temping as a way to be paid while learning and expanding your network of contacts.
If you want to change industries, temping is a great way to explore different fields, many you might have not considered before. Working for a museum, advertising agency, or investment bank sound interesting? You can only really know once you're there, and temping can give you that opportunity.
