One of the fastest growing segments in the job market is temporary employment.

Part-time employment in the U.S. will soon grow faster than all other jobs, according to a new report. The study, published Friday by TrueBlue and labor-market analytics company Emsi, found that temporary employment has grown steadily over the last several years, as the U.S. recovered from the 2008 financial crisis.

The study also found that 42 percent of individuals picking up temporary work take on at least two jobs per week; most respondents said they started a part-time job in order to earn extra money, though some said it was to get their foot in the door with a company.

These will be the fastest-growing temporary occupations from 2019 to 2025, the report found:

* Laborers and freight, stock and material movers, hand: 598,077 jobs, adding 53,627 new positions
* Helpers - production workers: 120,900 jobs, adding 24,709 positions
* Industrial truck and tractor operators: 62,958 jobs, adding 5,529 positions
* Human resources specialists: 60,156 jobs, adding 5,410 new positions
* Stock clerks and order fillers: 52,613 jobs, adding 4,662 new positions
* Office clerks: 123,016 jobs, adding 4,612 new positions
* Packaging and filling machine operators and tenders: 51,356 jobs, adding 4,513 new positions
* Registered nurses: 49,637 jobs, adding 4,482 new positions
* Construction workers: 49,120 jobs, adding 4,353 new positions
* Substitute teachers: 44,375 jobs, adding 4,056 new positions
* Janitors and cleaners (not including maids and housekeeping cleaners): 44,807 jobs, adding 3,994 new positions
* Customer service representatives: 95,475 jobs, adding 3,729 new positions
* Software developers and applications: 24,150 jobs, adding 3,248 new positions

The company I work for does all hiring through temp agencies now. If temps do well they'll hire them permanently, but they often take their time about it.
