Their skills are sharp

Those who have a steady history of temporary work tend to have that history because they were very marketable and easy to place. They got the most out of every temporary assignment, taking the time to learn new technologies and processes that kept them in demand for future work. They may also have taken advantage of free training offered by their staffing firm.

They bring fresh perspectives

Having worked at companies of varied sizes and in a range of industries, temporary employees have been exposed to a lot of ways of handling administrative tasks. This knowledge can help them offer valuable new ideas to your team.

So next time you see a resume with a steady history of temporary employment, be sure to move it to the “yes” stack for further consideration.
