2. You'll quickly learn new skills and gain experience.
Often, temporary workers are brought in to solve or alleviate an immediate issue. So employers are focused on training you and arming you with the right skills pretty quickly. So if you have an area in mind that you want to home in on, finding a temporary role that covers it could give you a real boost, as well as sharpen your CV.
3. You're in control.
