Looking for Temporary Jobs? Here's Where to Find Them!

profileMing Feng

Temporary, part-time and contract jobs are usually perceived as being less valuable since we live in a culture that drives us to strive for full-time, permanent employment. 

However, in the new normal, there are many advantages to taking up of temporary, part-time, and contract jobs as Singaporeans across industries face job loss, salary freezes and redundancy due to the COVID-19 crisis. 

Under the SGUnited Jobs Initiative, more than 40,000 jobs will be created to help Singaporeans get back into the workforce. Unsurprisingly, many of these aren’t necessarily permanent full-time roles as companies hold off permanent hiring until eventual recovery, or have short-term manpower needs due to disruptions in labour supply.

But, let’s focus on the positive: companies are still hiring!
