Temporary Agency

By

Definition: Temporary agencies are employment agencies that find employees to fill short-term temporary jobs. For example, temps are often hired to work during seasonal increases in business or to cover vacations or illnesses.

Many temporary agencies have expanded their role in the employment sector to fill "temp to perm" positions where they position starts out as a temporary job, but, could become permanent if the employer decides to hire the candidate.
