Breaking into the workforce is challenging. If you are a new graduate or transitioning into a different field, it can be scary and stressful. A staffing agency is an excellent way to get your foot into the industry and build your career. With your eagerness and their expertise, your career will take off in no time, and you will be wondering what you were so stressed about in the first place.
Temporary jobs can lead to permanent positions
While the idea of temporary work might turn some people off, there is always the possibility of it turning into something more. If you prove your worth, a contract has the potential of turning into a full-time position. And even if none of them do, you now have a fantastic and diverse resume giving you a leg up on your competition when you do apply for that dream job.
Build your network
Once you finish a contract, that doesn’t mean the connections you made go away. With each job you take on, the more people you meet, thus growing your network. These connections stay with your forever, and you never know where they can lead you. Although a past temporary contract seems like a blip in time, it can have a lasting effect on your career if you take the time to make meaningful connections.
Quick turnover rate
Traditional job hunting can take weeks or even months. For many new grads, so much time was spent in school, leaving no time to get hands-on experience. This can be tricky when you are suddenly shoved into “the real world.” You are more likely to quickly find a job with a staffing agency than applying on your own.

Opportunities for different work environments
Working these temporary jobs allows you to work in a variety of companies and environments. These experiences help you get to know yourself better and learn what works for you and what doesn’t.
