SmartTalent - Career change adviceWhen you run into a dead-end at the office and you feel overwhelmed with your current career, it might be time to consider a career change. If this has crossed your mind more than once, consider switching your career to temporary assignments. Temporary work is just as rewarding as full-time, permanent work and it can also be a launching pad into a new career.

Provides a Foot in the Door

All temporary work provides employees with a foot in the door, which is an excellent benefit when looking to change careers. You can work as many temporary jobs as you would like to, in any industry, so you can gain exposure and experience in a plethora of areas. You never know when an opportunity to work in a temporary job could lead to a full-time offer in the future.

Helps Build Your Network

Taking on temporary assignments will help you build your professional network. This is vitally important when it comes to switching careers because you will be able to meet people of all different backgrounds and experience levels who might be able to help you get a job in the future or provide you with a recommendation. One of the most important things you must remember is to build strong relationships with your co-workers. Networking is a valuable resource to helping you find and secure positions you are considering in the future.

Keeps Resume Stable

Employment at temporary jobs will keep your resume up-to-date, which is very important to employers who are looking for full-time, part-time and temporary employees with in-demand skills.

Helps you Stay Fresh

Working in temporary jobs will keep you on your toes. It will help to keep your skills fresh and place you in new situations where you have the opportunity to continue learning. Make sure that you continue to use your training and skill sets when switching careers.
