Why Temp Work Is A Smart Move

By Robert Half International

Temporary work is a career option chosen by thousands of professionals each day. This arrangement can present a rich variety of engagements that allow you to hone existing skills and develop new ones, and it exposes you to a diverse set of individuals -- critical for building your network.

Working as a temporary professional also can ease financial concerns. You can afford to be more selective about the full-time opportunities you pursue if you are generating income through interim work.

And a temporary role may be ideal for professionals who want to spend more time with their families or focus on a hobby or other interest.
