My spouse is having a really hard time finding work, she has a degree in business and over 10 years of administrative/clerical exp. I suggest to her to try temp agencies, does anyone else have any leads or suggestions? Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I bet a visit to Procter & Gamble's Website could turn up something. There should be a link to job/career opportunities from the home page. Although P & G probably utilizes temp agencies, someone with the credentials of your Flo could well find something compatible with her academic and professional backgrounds by going straight to the source. "Uncle Procter" remains one of the top employers in the entire Tri-State, not only in terms of numbers but also in terms of being a great place to work (top-drawer bene's, stock options, on-site day care, etc etc.) They not only operate out of the "Dolly Parton Towers" downtown, they also have R & D (research/development) centers in outlying areas such as Blue Ash and Finneytown.

Also try one of the local banks' headquarters or regional centers, whether it be National City or Huntington Bank, Fifth-Third or PNC.

The IRS' big tax processing center for the whole lower Midwest and upper South is in Covington. They may be in a hiring cycle, where hundreds if not thousands of people sit for Civil Service exams relevant to their skill levels and are then hired based on their scores and job availability. A lot of what's offered there is permanent and year-round. Ditto for the Postal Service.

The HR office at Cincinnati's City Hall (801 Plum St) probably has open positions posted there and online too.

Watch out with those temp agencies. Most of them are corrupt crap shoots.

I agree with Goyguy. P&G always has something. Only bad part about them is their big battery of tests, but once one gets past that, then it's swing swing swing.
