What is a Temp Agency?

A temporary or “temp” agency (also referred to as a staffing agency) is a business dedicated to placing job seekers into short-term and long-term contract positions with an array of different companies and industries. Typically, companies seek out staffing agencies to fill their open contract and temporary jobs due to ease, speed, and expertise.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A TEMP AGENCY?

Ever wonder where your application goes when you submit it to a job board? Likely, it goes into a large database full of other applications just like yours. Discouraging, right? The benefit of using a temp agency like Parker is that we get your resume directly in front of a hiring manager. You skip databases and resume piles, instead getting timely feedback regarding your application, which doesn’t always happen when applying on your own.

Working with a staffing agency means you have an advocate, someone to help you with the leg work. We place you in front of managers at sought-after employers and help you succeed. Recruiters will often work with you on refining your resume and coaching your interview style. Here at Parker, we go above & beyond by communicating with you every step of the way, and we always have your best interests at heart.

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A TEMP AGENCY TO FIND ME A JOB?

At Parker, job seekers never have to pay us to find them employment; in fact, most staffing and temp agencies work in a similar way. When Parker places a contractor, we bill the company directly based on the number of hours our contractor works.
