February appears to have been a good month for job seekers. The private sector added 192,000 jobs last month, with all sectors adding workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

One area that has been steadily adding jobs and will continue to do so through 2011 is the temporary staffing industry, according to Bob Kovalsky, senior vice president of Adecco Staffing U.S., a division of the world's largest employment agency.

"While permanent jobs are being created more slowly than anyone expected, temporary jobs have increased month over month," he told WalletPop in a telephone interview. "Companies are trying to be more productive. As a result, temporary work may be a way to demonstrate to a potential employer your capabilities and help you gain new skill sets for the future."
