How to use your temp experience to boost your resume

How do you describe your temping career on your resume so it doesn’t look like a random collection of short-term jobs but speaks of experience and competence? You can do this in various ways. We have listed a few examples below.

Use high-profile brands to boost your resume

Have you temped for any major brands? Use the brand names of well-known and respected companies to boost your RESUME by mentioning the businesses you actually worked for – and not just Moment.

You could put it like this, for example:

  • 2020-2021 Payroll consultant, Danske Bank, Taastrup - temping via Moment A/S
  • 2021-2022 AML Specialist, Danske Bank, Taastrup - temping via Moment A/S

Note any permanent positions you took after temping

If you were hired on a permanent basis after temping with a company, you should add this to your resume.

That will show a future employer that you are a stable and capable employee and that you were such as success in the role that you made yourself indispensable. That could look like this:

  • 2021-2022 AML Specialist, Danske Bank, Taastrup - temping via Moment A/S
  • 2022- AML Specialist, Danske Bank, Taastrup - employed after temping for one year 

If you have a lot of short spells of temporary jobs

It is always good for your resume if you can say you were employed in a company for a year or more.  But what do you do if you have had a lot of shorter temping jobs? Here, you could do well to focus on how long you have been with Moment.

List the skills you have picked up from your temp jobs

It is a very good idea to list the many skills you have acquired in your various jobs. 

Here is an example: 

2001-2004 Various temporary positions within customer service for companies that needed these specific skills: XX, XXX and XXXX. Experience from e.g.:

  • Novo Nordisk
  • Danske Bank
  • Teleperformance

Don’t forget experience from relevant jobs/sectors

It is important for your future employer not to miss the fact that you have a year’s priceless experience from a relevant job or sector.

If you have had a lot of short-term temping jobs, you should only include the most relevant to the position/sector you are applying for.

Adapt your temp experience to the job

This means highlighting the most relevant experience. So remember to adapt the temp jobs you mention on your resume to the specific application you are sending out.

Reverse chronological order

Another way of laying out your resume which could be especially helpful to anyone with many short-term temp jobs might be to list the jobs according to the functions you performed. And perhaps in reverse chronological order. That could look like this:


Experience of budgeting and analysing data from temporary positions through Moment A/S with e.g. Western Copenhagen Police (Københavns Vestegns Politi), Danske Bank, Express Bank.

Job experience as: finance officer, customer consultant and financial controller. Period: 2005 - now.

Project management:

Project management experience from temp positions through Moment A/S with e.g. Lasso X, AstraZenica.

Job experience as: Project manager, administrator. Period: 2003-2005.
