What is temp work?

To put it simply, temp work is a job that’s limited to a certain period of time, depending on the needs of the employer. It could be one month; it could be one year. You can work as a temp in a bunch of different industries, and work can be part-time or full-time. It could even turn into permanent work in certain situations.

Companies are hiring all across the country—particularly essential services companies and recovering businesses in consumer goods, hospitality, logistics, and manufacturing—so finding temp work in your area should be a piece of cake! That is, if you connect with a staffing company that can match you with a fitting position.
