Temp work can be a great asset that you will want to feature on your resume. The question is how to approach it so that you position yourself in the best light. The exact answers will depend on your career goals and what kind of temp work you have been doing
Who should you list as your employer? The temp agency is your employer so you want to indicate that on your resume. Of course, there are times when you will also want to list the name of the client company as well. That can be a good idea if you have been on a long term assignment. It is also beneficial when the company has strong name recognition or is related to the field where you are hoping to advance your career.
How should you format your temporary assignments? Maybe the temp agency you work with placed you on one long term assignment with one client. On the other hand, maybe you have been moving around between multiple assignments that last for a couple of days or a few weeks at a time. Naturally, you want to avoid a resume that looks like a long laundry list of brief stints. The solution is to group your assignments together in whatever fashion makes the best impression.
What kind of job description should you write? Temp work is much like having a staff position in one sense. In both cases, you want to play up the qualities and accomplishments that will make you more attractive to your next employer. Go ahead and talk about how you reorganized the system for ordering mailing supplies to save time and money. Provide an example of how your customer service skills helped to win back a client who was about to cancel their service.
