Job seekers today have a tough threshold to get across. You may be the perfect fit for a job, but your past accomplishments may not be enough to prove it. You have to show it. That's where temp agencies come in. Employers often use temporary employment as an on-the-job tryout. If they like what they see, they can offer a permanent position.
It's one way in the door at a time when employers hold all the cards.
