Hi all,

Which temp agencies would you consider "a waste of time"? What about those agencies that actually want to be of help?

I have mixed views on temp agencies. I'm in HR so I see both sides of it.

Basically, right now they are not needed. With such high unemployment an employer can place an ad and get many qualified applicants. Early 90s not the case. Times are different as we all know. I have always felt that they are full of BS...they promise you the World and deliver nothing! All empty promises. Your best bet is to network, do indeed.com, go to job fairs and employers you are interested in; go to their website and try to get your foot in the door. Good luck to you. It is a tough market but if you are dedicated you will find something!
