Adding temporary employment can seem a little tricky if you’re trying to use a standard template to fill in the content of your resume, as this may portray you as a “job hopper”. It’s actually very easy and is just a matter of getting familiar with a bit of formatting and structure within the content of your resume document.
Here are a few steps to keep in mind when incorporating your temporary employment history, or “temp assignments” into your resume.
- Place the name of the staffing agency first and the corresponding dates of employment.
- Below that, include a one-line summary of how many assignments you completed, in what areas or industries, and for how long in each.
- List the clients you worked for, starting with your most recent, along with corresponding dates, duties and accomplishments.
- Continue listing your previous work experience, as applicable, just as you would in a traditional chronological resume format.
