Temporary employees are in charge of helping employers and other employees meet any demands that are needed of the company for a set amount of time. Retail businesses use temp employees during holidays to help boost customers service and sales. Businesses that deal with fast demanding projects will use temp employees to meet a fast-coming deadline. If employees are exceptional at the temporary work, some business owners will hire them permanently, after the set temporary time has passed.
Temporary employee’s educational requirements can range from just a high school diploma, to needing a bachelor’s degree. Because this work is only for a set period of time, it is important to be able to handle a strenuous workload, short deadlines, and long hours. Depending on the business, other skills such as organization, good personality, communication, scheduling, team work, telephone etiquette, and an ability to work weekends, could be needed.
