Temporary agency work is a good stepping stone for a permanent job. Many companies choose to start new employees with a temporary employment contract, and only offer a permanent contract later on. If you choose a job under a temporary employment contract with "option temporary to permanent", then you may receive a permanent contract after a successful temporary assignment.
