Desperately Seeking Temps ™ March, 2002 by Temping 247 ™ a Relationship LLC ® Outfit
STATE OF THE MARKET: Currently, the Temp Agencies that are buying classified ad space in NYC papers appear to be the same agencies week after week. We will therefore make our "Desperately Seeking Temps" Report "Monthly", until there is some substantial change is what Agencies are advertising for temps.
We suggest that you use the "keyword search" feature at the bottom of our interactive directories to search for temp agencies. You can search by any keyword, either by field or industry. For example, you can search for "help desk" to find agencies which have in the past indicated that they get requests for temps who can do help desk, or you can (for example) search on the keyword "legal" for temp agencies which have indicated that they specialize in supplying temps to law firms.
Just remember, there is always temp work, it is just a matter of finding out what agencies have the work. There are more than 1,000 temp agencies in NYC (and this does not even include consulting firms and outsourcing firms).
MORPH OF THE WEEK: Until someone tells me otherwise, it looks like Legal Word Processing Centers is still where most of the action is. Note above that Bowne is looking for Legal Word Processors. Haven’t seen any advertising from Pitney Bowes lately, so maybe their little endeavor at Proskauer Rose is NOT getting bigger
ONE STOP NEWS: The training available from unemployment is just incredible. I know of someone who got into a training program who is NOT unemployed, this just shows how much opportunity there is out there to get training and do other things
Worker Consortium/WCC annonces a new automate resume service. 1-888-NYC-JOBS (888-692-5627). If you have Internet access, you can go to www.888nycjobs.com and click on "new seekers." On the next page you can see how the system works and then click on "register." The system will then lead you through a simple process to create your own enhanced resume.
If you can’t find work, register for unemployment. If you don’t register for unemployment, you won’t qualify for the free training available through the new One-Stop Program. In NYC, most of the training is through The Consortium for Woker Education’s WCC, http://www.cwe.org. The division of the WCC that handles placement for displaced professionals is PROS, http://www.pros.cc
