Employment Agencies

Some businesses don't want to advertise their job openings or interview job applicants so they hire an employment agency to do it for them. They tell the employment agency about upcoming projects and what kind of help they're going to need. The agency then goes out and recruits people to fill those jobs and then sends their best recruits to work for the business. Some temporary jobs can last a few days and others can last a few months. Often, temporary workers are offered full-time, permanent jobs at the businesses they are placed. Businesses also use temporary workers as a means to learn new skills, gain experience, make contacts, and build references. In fact, 40% of all temporary workers are working in their first real job. Contact these employment agencies in your area to find out more:
