Temp Agencies

Temp agencies are linked below, including the oldest and most popular. Temp agencies is short for temporary help agencies. They hire employees to work temporary and temp-to-permanent jobs at companies that are clients of the agencies.

Employees who work for temp agency clients are typically referred to as temporary employees or just temps for short.

Temps are sometimes referred to as contractors too, short for contract employees, because their temporary job assignments are contractually arranged.

Working for temp agency clients is often referred to as temping. It's also sometimes referred to as contracting, because of the contractual arrangements.

Note: Consultants and independent contractors are also referred to as contractors, because they too work for companies through contractual arrangements; however, they are self-employed, while temps are employees of temp agencies or other staffing firms.

Some people work through temp agencies for only a relatively short time, to test career changes, gain real-world employment experience after graduating, bridge an income gap when between permanent jobs, land permanent jobs through temp-to-permanent jobs, or as an avenue to quit dreaded permanent jobs as soon as possible.

Others make a career out of working through temp agencies because they like the frequent change in scenery, flexible work hours or the challenge of ever-changing working conditions.
