When you’re trying to change your career path, temping agencies may not be the first thing that comes to your mind. At CRG, we know that some workers still associate temp agencies and recruiters with lower skill jobs or short term assignments, but working with a recruiter could actually help you get that job in a new field. Here’s a closer look at why you should consider a temp agency when you’re embarking on a new phase in your career.


Employers Might Be More Willing To Take A Chance

One good thing about temp jobs is that an employer could be more willing to take a chance on you. Even if a position is a bit of a change from your recent work, a recruiter vouching for you and a good interview could help propel you into a new field. Do well in your temporary job, and you could end up with an offer or a great new line for the resume.


You Can Learn More Skills

A temp job gives you the opportunity to learn more skills. You can also brush up on some that you may not have used in a while. This can be useful if you’re trying to transition into a new type of job. Beefing up your resume is always good, but it’s especially useful if you’re entering a new field where competing applicants might have more experience than you. Certain skills or aptitudes could set you apart.


You Can “Test Drive” A New Career

A temp job also gives you the rare chance to test out a new career. If you’re thinking about a new field or position, temp agencies could give you the opportunity to see if your new career move will work out. If you don’t like the new job, it’s easy enough to go back to the recruiter or head out on your own to continue to hunt for another kind of position.


You Can Network

What some people don’t realize is that many temporary jobs actually give you a great chance to network. This is especially useful for someone who is trying to change their career path. You can meet people who work in this field, learn more about it, and see if a change in your employment will work out for the best. Then if you do need a new job, you start out ahead because you already know some people who could help you out.


You Could End Up With A Full-Time Job

A temporary job in a new field could end up becoming a full-time job. More and more companies are working with recruiters to fill “temp to perm” jobs. They start as a temporary position, and then you end up with a new job or even employment in a new field that can alter your career path. That temp agency served as a launching pad into your next career.
