  • Need variety? Temporary jobs and per diem work is full of change.

Temporary Jobs vs. Regular Employment  What's the Difference?

  • In the true sense of the word "temporary" it is exactly that. It's a position that has a beginning and a specific end with no commitment to work beyond the dates of the contract.

  • "Regular" employment means you work directly for a company or institution who supervises your work and is responsible for paying you.

  • A "temporary" job through an agency means that although you provide services or perform work for our client, you are not an employee of the client. To the company - or the client - you are a "contractor", "temp", or "per diem worker".

  • If an employer hires a worker to perform a "temporary" position and is not using the services of an agency the worker is considered a "temporary employee".

  • What does "per diem" mean? The literal translation of "per diem" is per day. In the staffing industry "per diem" may refer to a 1-day assignment or multiple-day assignment. Either way it is a temporary position.

If you are experienced at working temporary jobs or you like the sound of working in a way that fits your lifestyle contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you find a job you love.
