The Benefits of Healthcare Temp Work through DMC

There are lots of ways to find employment, and some are certainly better than others. One opportunity that many people overlook when considering a new job is the opportunity to do temp work. Here are the many fantastic benefits we can give to our temporary healthcare workers.

medical assistant and medical staff


If you are looking for an unusual shift or to only work on certain days, temporary work is an excellent solution for you. Frequently, we help employers fill the gaps that they have a hard time keeping staffed.

People who are great for this sort of scenario are:

  • New parents
  • Going to school
  • Needing a second job
  • Considering a new career

Higher Pay

Yes. Temporary workers get higher pay. Why? Because temporary workers usually get hired for circumstances that can’t be met by a permanent employee. Employers know that if they are only asking you to work to fill a spot while someone is on leave, you aren’t going to be very attracted to their short-term offering if it is for a standard pay rate. They know that sometimes they are asking you to work shifts that other people don’t want or for a position that could be short-lived. Sometimes, they need you to come in ready to get to work rather than taking you through a lengthy onboarding and training experience; so they are willing to pay for you to grace them with your flexibility and your expertise.

Try Before You Buy

Frequently, temporary positions lead to a permanent placement. Can you think of a permanent job in your past that you wouldn’t have agreed to if you had you known what it was going to be like ahead of time? We know this happens a lot, so why not work in a position and find out if the job is indeed a good fit for you before you put down your permanent roots?

We want you to be happy, and if you dislike a temporary placement, we don’t count that against you. We want to know as soon as you know that you aren’t happy with your temporary assignment so we can find a better job for your needs. We’ll start looking for you before you leave your current position, ideally setting you up to go without a break in paychecks. And we’ll negotiate an excellent package for you if you do want to transition to permanent, which is much easier to do when the employer already knows you.

Exposure to Different Specialties

Another benefit is that you will probably be exposed to positions, people, places, and opportunities that you could’ve quite easily overlooked if you were searching for a job on your own.

Have you ever heard of a friend setting up another friend on a date? It’s likely that the “setup” is happening because the friend playing matchmaker sees things in both of her friends that she thinks will work well together in a relationship. We’re kind of like that at DMC. We are a very specialized agency who takes the time to get to know our candidates and who has developed strong relationships with our contracted healthcare employers. Because of the long-term relationships with our employers, we have an outstanding sense of what type of person will work for them, which likely means we can find excellent, and maybe unexpected opportunities for you that you never would’ve selected for yourself, much like friends who play matchmaker.

Perfect for Entry Level

How do you get all the experience that people want you to have before they are willing to hire you? Take temporary positions. Many temporary positions welcome entry-level workers, and if they do, we’ll make sure that they will help you get up to speed in no time. We’ve helped many entry-level healthcare workers grow their resume through temporary placements. And because we’ve worked with you as an entry-level employee, we will be on the lookout to get you new positions that will help you raise your pay and experience as your work history with us grows.
