Do Staffing Agencies Only Hire Temporary Employees? | SMGS #4

Welcome to the Staffing Myths Game Show! I’m your host Kerry McTrevor. Our returning contestant is Shawn from Salt Lake City, Utah. He will attempt to win points by correctly answering questions regarding common myths in the staffing industry. Shawn, after three rounds of play you have a score of negative 1800 points.

Shawn, I’m just going to do you a favor and turn your scoreboard off. The correct answer is staffing agency jobs are as real as jobs get. You can find work with local, national, and even global organizations via staffing and gain experience at a variety of companies and job opportunities that you would otherwise may not have had access to. You can and will work with excellent companies. Final question. Shawn, what are you doing on this show? Seriously man, you know nothing about staffing. I thought Staffing Myths had to do with mythical people who carry staffs.

Like Gandalf. You thought this was a gameshow about wizards? Or Indiana Jones and the staff of ra! Which mythical staff is the one I can use to knock some sense into you?
