Temporary employment agencies are match-makers. They have employers who need short-term help and job hunters who need work. Temp agencies bring both parties together.
Working for a temp agency is a great way to get your foot in the door at a good company, learn new skills, gain experience, make contacts, and build references.
Each year, about 12 million people find work through employment agencies, and 43% are offered permanent jobs after their temporary assignment ends.
