Conduct a cost-benefit analysis of entering the temp workforce. 
Do other
opportunity costs fare better? 
You decide!

Factors Making Temping Viable

  • You need immediate income.
  • You want to gain exposure to different work environments.
  • You are covered by someone else's health insurance (or are registered with one of the
    few agencies that offer affordable insurance).
  • You do not feel physically or emotionally capable of sustained work.
  • You need a regular job and can find a temp agency and assignments which are truly "temp-to-perm" or "temp-to-hire" within your time frame.
  • You are not such a good self-promoter and need a counselor to line up work for you.

Factors Mitigating Against Temping

  • You need the time for a job search.
  • You need health insurance coverage provided at a group rate.
  • Your comfort with changing environments and supervisors is limited.
  • You enjoy/need being a full member of a work team.
  • Your family responsibilities vary (less flexibility in hours exists in a succession of temp assignments).
  • You do not own a car or hold a driver's license.
