As most temporary staffing agencies go, you will be spending your time with them being interviewed for the job that you need from them. If all things go according to your plans and expectations, you will be hired by the staffing agency based on a temporary staffing contract. If all goes even better, at a later time, you will then be given to the company that is looking for your services and will be hired in full time. When you are not chosen for the position that you have applied for using their services, they will just keep your name on their job bank that is on file. For potential job matches, you will be contacted according if they meet your needs.

Do not forget to take note of one tiny detail that most job placement services offered by temporary staffing agencies give you. One thing that you can expect from a staffing agency is that they will need you to pass their computer skills assessment examination. A lot of job seekers seem to be disheartened by this fact since they will only be allowed to do some interview after passing this examination. Thus, you have to enhance your level of computer literacy first if you intend to go through your interview. Failing and refusing to take their pre-interview exams will just lead you to not be granted any interview that will be able to lead you to finding the job of your dreams.
