About Denver Temp Agency Jobs
Agencies interview qualifies applicants and, if they have sufficient skills and certifications, they hire them as contractors. Then, when they are contacted by a company in need of a temporary position, they can quickly match then with a qualified employee. Temp agencies make their money by charging their contractors a premium to hire from their agency. This is typically in the form of a percentage of the salary that the employee makes during their time at the company.
Typical Temp Jobs
Temp jobs tend to be clerical and in an office setting, handling the work of answering phone calls, filing paperwork, typing, and other relatively menial tasks. For example, a law firm in need of a secretary might hire one through a temp agency so they do not have to waste the time finding a qualified worker.
While temp agencies can be a lucrative job opportunity for plenty of entry-level workers, especially those looking to get relevant experience under their belt, they have limited opportunities for advancement. However, it is possible to utilize time at a temp agency to form connections with companies and potentially get hired as a full-time worker later on.
