Be sure to communicate what you didn’t like with the staffing agency. This will help them further narrow down jobs for you.

In addition, it helps to be open to temporary positions. Most companies in a variety of different industries are currently seeking temporary employees because it allows them a certain amount of flexibility, too. Temporary work also allows you to gain more experience in your chosen line of work and lets you develop more skills in more roles. Furthermore, if you work well in your temporary environment, there is always the possibility of becoming a permanent hire.
