Pro Tips for Finding Temporary Positions

Temporary positions can be rewarding, fulfilling, and beneficial – if you find the right ones.

If you’re searching for temp work, you’ll want to follow these pro tips to find your next position.

1. Refresh Your Resume

Whether you’re looking for your first temp job or another position after many, now is a good time to refresh your resume. Many temp jobs will still require you to submit one, so it’s worth taking the time to make sure it’s accurate.

2. Write Down What You Want

There are a lot of temporary jobs available, so before you start wading through them it’s a good idea to figure out exactly what you’re looking for. This includes things like:

  • Do I want a similar job to something I’ve done before, or try something new?
  • Am I ok with traveling? Do I need a job to provide accommodations?
  • What salary range will make this worthwhile for me?
  • Am I looking for temp only, or temp-to-hire opportunities?


Writing down your answers to these questions will help you sift through jobs to find exactly the right fit.

3. Partner with a Staffing Agency

A good place to start is a temporary staffing agency like Strom Engineering. Strom provides staffing services for all sorts of industries and positions, so it’s easy for you to pick and choose based on what you’re looking for.

There are obviously other options available online, but we recommend working with a temporary staffing agency because they’ll provide you with the exact jobs that fit what you’re looking for – without you needing to do any heavy lifting or searching.

How Does a Staffing Agency Work?
