Because of the pandemic, there are still a lot of people who are at home. If you’re looking for a way to get out of the house (and make some money while you do it), then a temp job can be a great opportunity.

If you’re thinking about trying a temp agency, then you are in the right place! LGC offers many temp positions in multiple industries. Each job is unique and matches your skills and employment needs. (You can check out available jobs here.) Here are a few reasons why a temp job might be right for you – especially if you need another reason to get out of the house! 

Check out cool venues 

Working temporary assignments is the perfect way to check out venues in your city that you may not have been to before. Think concert venues, sports stadiums, and other popular attractions all fall under temp job locations. Get behind-the-scenes access at some incredible locations. 

Earn extra cash 

If you’ve got some free time on your hands, why not earn some extra cash? Working with a temp agency can get you a job quickly that pays well. The nice thing is, it’s not permanent! You can work one day, one week, or one month. Sometimes when you are looking for a long term job, you have no way of making money in the meantime. Temp jobs offer you flexibility and cushion to fall back on. 

Build up your resume 

Another reason you might want to check out a temp agency is for your resume. You can add a few new skills to your list. Having a more well-rounded resume is attractive to employers. You might find out you are really good at serving and have great people skills. Or that you have a passion for cooking. LGC can help you figure out what you’re good at/interested in.  

Network + meet new people 

While you’re growing your resume, you’re also growing your network! Working different jobs creates opportunities to meet new people. You may meet someone who can help you grow your career or make a new friend. All it takes is a conversation. 

Lead to a permanent career 

Working a temp job is a great way to get your foot in the door with a company or team. Your goal might be to move your way up in a specific position. Starting out as a temporary employee is a great start. You can learn the ins and outs of the company and feel more comfortable in a permanent position. The company will also see your loyalty and get an idea of what it would be like to work with you in the long term.
