One of the benefits of a manufacturing engineer career is the flexibility; you can either work a full-time job or a temporary position. It is even possible for you entire career to consist of one temporary position after another. Though temporary positions aren't always considered a positive addition to a career, this isn't the case in manufacturing engineering.
As such a relevant aspect of the engineering industry, manufacturing engineering jobs are available virtually everywhere. If you decide to work temporary positions, you are able to gain a variety of skill sets that can help you in future job searches, permanent or temporary.
