This article reports that freedom and flexibility are cited as the main reasons people choose temporary instead of fulltime employment. The skills one has and the type of company he or she would like to temp for will, in most cases, determine which agency you register with. For example, if one's skills fall under accounting, bookkeeping, record keeping, and finance, agencies such as Pro Staff, Accountemps, and Accountants Inc. are ideal. If one's skills fall in the legal field, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, etc. one should register with agencies that employ temps at law firms and attorney's offices, such as Special Counsel, the largest legal recruiting agency of its kind.
