If you haven’t heard about temp agencies, there can be a lot to know. When you want a temp job, rather than applying to temp jobs, you’ll need to go through temp agencies to be placed into one. Keep reading to learn what you need to know about temp agencies.
First, in order to get started with a temp agency, you’ll need to apply to work there, just like with any other job. This involves, completing an application, interviewing, and possibly taking an assessment to see if you’d be a good fit for the various roles they are trying to fill.
Second, even though you will be with a variety of companies, you’ll still be working for the temp agency. This means your paycheck will come from the temp agency even though your duties and schedule are determined by the companies you are working at.
Third, once a temp assignment ends, you can work with the agency to find another one. In some cases, they may be able to place you in a new job right away. It is also possible there may be downtime between jobs. This depends on the agency, the location, and your skill set.
