Seeking Job Help Through a Temporary Agency

If you are job hunting due to a recent lay off or looking for a change in career, you may consider going through a temporary agency. If so, here are some things you might expect when you get there.

Of course, the first thing you will encounter is an initial interview. Most likely, you will be asked about the types of working environments you have experience in, and what you are comfortable with. This type of information refers to your “soft skills.” Soft skills, the people skills and experience you’ve gained in different offices, may indicate whether or not you’ll last on a certain assignment.

Monster.com offers the following tips for interviewing at the Temp Agency:

  • If you can, arrive with a resume. But don’t worry if you don’t have one. The agency will help you formulate one.
  • Plan to spend several hours there. It takes time for the agency to interview, test and work with you.
  • Dress as if you were going to the office. Temp agency representatives will be able to determine immediately whether you need advice on how to dress appropriately in the work place
