Why finding a flexible job with PeopleReady is right for you

For PeopleReady associates, finding their first temporary job is often just the beginning. Here are three ways that being active on the app can benefit your job search and help you explore flexible jobs that can lead to exciting new opportunities.

Find jobs that more closely match your skillset

One of the greatest challenges for job seekers today is how long it takes to find a job and start making money. While job boards offer many options, it can still be time-consuming to find positions that fit your skills, schedule and career goals. For many job seekers the lack of response can also be stressful.

However, PeopleReady and our app, JobStack, make the search simpler. The app lists part-time or temporary jobs that are available now and has a one-click application process, allowing you to find matching jobs and get to work sooner. With JobStack, you can update your profile as you gain new skills and experience. Over time, the app learns more about you and your interests and preferences.

Additionally, you can opt in to receive push notifications for jobs similar to those you’ve completed in the past, simplifying the job search. After that, you can accept these assignments if your schedule allows it.

Get exclusive access to jobs and explore different industries

The current job market has made it difficult for many employers to find candidates. Rather than looking to fill full-time positions, some companies are looking for temporary workers who can support their current needs. The gig economy is experiencing a boom period, allowing temporary workers to try out several types of jobs to see where their interests and talents are.

In turn, your flexible job could help you gain relevant industry experience that is important for the next step in your career. The skills and knowledge you gain as a part-time or temporary worker can lead to a job in the same industry in the future. JobStack gives you a direct connection to jobs in many of the industries that are seeing the most growth right now. For example:

  • Retail: customer service representatives, cashiers, store associates
  • Hospitality: desk clerks, food servers, cooks, concierges
  • Construction: general laborers, cleanup crew members, painters
  • Manufacturing: production workers, assemblers, sorters, machinists

Make connections with potential employers

Flexible jobs also help you build your network and get your foot in the door in a new company or industry. As a result of taking a part-time or temporary job, you will have more opportunities to meet employers in your field. Meanwhile, you can build valuable relationships that could benefit you in the future.

With JobStack, employers on the app rate workers on a scale of 1 to 5, so having a better overall score can lead to more job opportunities. They also maintain a record of all their workers and often invite their best ones back for future projects. With high scores and more experience, you may be paid at a higher rate over time.
