3 Reasons Military Spouses Should Partner With Temporary Staffing Agencies

As the spouse of an active duty service member, every few years, you have the pleasure of packing up your home, and your life, and moving to another part of the country. While your spouse has the pleasure of leaving one role and walking right into another, it is not always the case for you. However, partnering with a temporary agency can help. Here are a few benefits of working with a temporary staffing agency.

1. You're Able To Get More Familiar With The Area

When you move to a new area, there is a lot to learn, especially when it comes to where you want to work. Particularly when it comes to larger metropolitan areas, there are certain areas that are traffic nightmares or parts of town that are simply not convenient based on the location of your home or where your children go to school. 

When you work with a temporary agency, you have the opportunity to work in different parts of the city, which affords you the opportunity to learn more about the area and help you decide where you want to settle permanently.

2. Minimizes Your Employment Gaps

While some employees will give some consideration to the fact that you have to move around because of your spouse, when your resume is stacked up against hundreds of other applicants, gaps in your employment history can be a problem. In fact, for some companies, employment gaps can send a resume to the bottom of the pile.

Temporary staffing agencies afford you the opportunity to start working faster than you would if you were seeking traditional employment. As a result, you can get to work sooner and lessen any employment gaps.

3. You're Able To Earn While You Search

A partnership with a temporary staffing agency can be used as a stepping-stone to gain full-time employment with one of the companies you are assigned to or it can be used as a temporary form of income until you find something else permanent. As a military family, if your household is accommodated to having two incomes, it may be a financial challenge for your family to wait for you to find a permanent role. 

Temporary job assignments give you the opportunity to earn an income while you search or interview for a permanent role. Simply coordinate with the staffing agency once you find a permanent role and they will help you make the transition from the temporary assignment.

Temporary staffing agencies are a great tool for military spouses to take advantage of. Contact a staffing agency to learn about more options in your local area.
