More than 50% of temporary employees say they have learned new skills, strengthened their résumé, and been in a good spot to land a permanent job, according to a survey of 12,000 current and former temporary employees. In certain fields such as technology and health care, temporary jobs have led to significantly higher earnings. Some temporary employees can earn a pay premium of up to 30%.
Although many temporary employees hope to find a permanent job, others prefer to be independent. “They believe it’s better for job security, and they want a higher degree of control over their work life,” says Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer of the American Staffing Association.
