When starting a family, it can be tough to go straight back into a full-time role. Committing to a part-time role can be easier, but due to your new founded unpredictable schedule, it could be difficult to nail down a concrete schedule. What solves both of these problems? Temping as a dental hygienist! Here are just some of the reasons that temping can be a perfect way for you to work while starting/raising your family.

You Can’t Beat The DIY Schedule

What’s the best working schedule? The one YOU make! Especially if you’re new to juggling parent roles and responsibilities, no two weeks are the same; there’s always rerouting and shifting going on in your schedule. This is where making and planning out your own working schedule can be a life saver.

You Can Be Picky About Your Practice

When you’re starting/raising a family, the LAST thing you need is added stress from working somewhere you don’t feel 100% comfortable.  Enter, the temping solution! If you work at a new practice one day and you aren’t vibing with it, guess what? You don’t have to go back! Making your own schedule has its perks.

You Could Find a Permanent Practice

When the dust settles, you might be looking for a full-time position. With the variety of practices you’re visiting while temping, you’ll have a better idea of what you want and where you want to be. To learn more about your personality type and what that means about you as an employee, a good place to start is our DISC personality quiz. Who knows, you could find your dream job while temping!

Meeting New People May Help

Temping means you’re constantly meeting new people who are likely living a similar lifestyle to yours. This means your colleagues probably have some tips and tricks when it comes to striking the perfect (or at least, sustainable) work-life balance. Hearing multiple perspectives on different lifestyle balances can’t hurt!

If you’re starting a family or want to focus on raising or building your family, consider taking advantage of this unique career opportunity! Want to start your temping journey? DentalPost can help you find the perfect temp opportunity in an area near you. Search for a job today!
