If you’re trying to decide on your career direction, you’re returning to work after an absence, or you’re not sure about the kind of job that would make you happy, consider working for a temporary employment agency.
Temp agencies, also known as staffing firms, hire employees and then place them in assignments at other companies. Companies approach these temp agencies, define their worker needs and then sign contracts for the agencies to supply the workers.
In the past, temp agencies were known for providing lower-skilled workers for entry-level type jobs. But times have changed.
