Working with temp agency

Reply Sun 6 Nov, 2011 12:10 pm
I signed up with a temp agency in my area, and they found me a job immediately. Unfortunately the job is not in the field they made it appear to be in. I am now working in a job that is completely wrong for me. I was just curious as to whether or not telling them this would be inappropriate on my part. If it's possible I would like to ask them to continue trying to match me with a job more within my area. I do plan on staying with the position until they find another.

That's only fair to both parties if you tactfully inform them of this discrepancy.
Let them know of your worries about the placement and it might be a win/win for the both of you.

You might get a more relevant job and they might get someone better suited to your position from which you are currently assigned.

Thank you so much for the response. I am going to call them tomorrow morning and explain my concerns.

I agree - although often times in a temp situation you may not get exactly what you would like - but handling the way you describe - talk to them and say you will stay until they find something more suitable seems appropriate.

So I called in and explained to them that I would stay at the current position, but to keep me in mind for any other open positions in the field I wanted. He said he would "make a note of it". I assume that means he won't be really taking any action on this. I figure I'll call back in a week. I don't want to ruin any opportunities though, or annoy the recruiters anymore than I just did. He also did not sound very pleased by what I requested.
