It’s understandable if temping was not your ideal position after college, but many people use the help of temping to get on their feet, start their career, or fill in gaps. A temp job is better than no job, right? For the amount of people who end up temping, there is an equal number of people who are unhappy in their permanent “dream job” positions.
