Posted on July 5th, 2013 Read time: 1 minutes

It is often difficult to get a job without job experience. For those who are just entering or reentering the job market, this is a frustrating situation. Contingent work can be a great solution. Temporary workers are often hired permanently by the companies where they work, which is an ideal situation for all involved. Even in the event that this does not happen, temporary and contract workers can get a lot varied experience fairly quickly if they choose to do so. This experience can help them obtain more temporary work or permanent work elsewhere.

Particularly for those who do have experience but have been out of the workforce for some time, temporary work is a great choice. Administrative skill, for example, or the ability to interact productively with the public, does not necessarily get outdated. There are certain features of every job that evolve more quickly, and those people whose general knowledge is good can get up to speed on recent developments in the field while doing contingent work.

Staffing agencies are often willing to consider people who are new or returning to the job market, as there are always a variety of temporary jobs available that can suit many experience levels. Employees who wish to gain or update their experience could consider applying for temporary employment.
