TEMP No Longer A 4 Letter Word

A U.S. poll conducted by Monster.com, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc., reveals that nearly 70% of respondents would consider taking a temporary job, given the current state of the economy.

“Today's workers, whether employed or not, are facing a tough situation. If you're unemployed, you're looking for a job in what is still an extremely uncertain market, especially as we see high interest in finding a new job by those currently employed. If you've kept your job, you may be feeling overworked and underappreciated, convinced that your employer has exploited the economic situation,” said Mary Ellen Slayter, Career Advice Expert for Monster.com. “If you're feeling like you're running out of options, it may be time to consider temporary work. Part-time or temporary work can offer a number of benefits you may not have considered: flexibility, ease back into the workforce, the ability to ‘test drive’ your options and the opportunity to piece together your perfect career.”

Monster asked the following question to U.S. visitors on its site, “Has ongoing economic turmoil made you consider the option of taking a temporary job?” The poll, which received more than 2,500 responses, resulted in the following findings:
  • Most of the time I would consider taking a temporary job – 42%
  • Some of the time I would consider taking a temporary job – 27%
  • I would hardly ever consider taking a temporary job – 15%
  • I would never consider taking a temporary job – 16%

The results of the current Monster.com Poll are based on votes cast by visitors on the U.S. Monster.com homepage and social media channels from: May 20-June 3, 2013. The Monster Meter is an ongoing series of online polls that gauge users' opinions on a variety of topics relating to careers, the economy and the workplace. This poll is not scientific and reflects the opinions of only those Internet users who have chosen to participate.
