Executives view steady temp work equal to full-time work

Menlo Park, Calif. --Managers want to see that job applicants have the relevant skills for the position, and one way to gain this experience in a tight labor market is through project work, according to OfficeTeam, a specialized staffing firm for administrative professionals.

The national survey includes responses from 150 executives--including those from human resources, finance, marketing, information technology and operations departments--from some of the nation's 1,000 largest companies.

Executives were asked, "When evaluating job applicants, would you consider a long period of consistent temporary work as comparable to full-time work?" Their responses:

Yes                             56%
No                              43%
No answer                     1%

"During a downturn, temporary assignments offer professionals the opportunity to maintain an income while building their experience," said Diane Domeyer, Executive Director of OfficeTeam.  

Domeyer says the skills required to succeed as a temporary employee--learning quickly, adapting to change and communicating well--are equally valuable to firms seeking full-time employees.
