Recruitment/Temp Agencies??? Hello, I posted awhile back about not being able to find a job, I'm still in that same boat. Background: I graduated 6 months ago with a Chemical Engineering degree. Good 3.4 GPA, Ive done 2 internships, very sociable, outgoing, blah blah blah... Im havin a heck of a time finding work. Ive applied to millions of online apps, Ive tried networking with previous and new contacts and attending career events. Im not really getting anywhere though. Ive decided to start pursuing low paying grunt work within my target industries to get a foot in the door. I was checking out my state government's online job board and there's currently tons of temporary lab, technician, and grunt jobs posted in the industries I'm interested in. However, every posting says, in order to apply I need to visit an office of this local temp agency. In addition, I was actually recently contacted randomly by a another agency and asked if I was interested in a temporary lab job with a pharmacy company. I've always felt kind of wary of employment agencies. Should I try it out? Could anyone who has used one share their experiences? Can they actually find you work quickly as they promise? I already know to stay away from any that charge fees upfront, but is there any other catch I should be aware of? Thanks for any insights.
