Departments contact our office when there is a need for temporary support for part time and full time temporary placements. The requests are for all levels and abilities with varying schedules. When we receive a request for which you are qualified, we will contact you to let you know the details of the assignment, which you may then accept or refuse. If you accept, a criminal background check will be completed and it is imperative to work the assignment for the length of time requested.
If you meet our requirements, you will be contacted to complete a series of online skills assessments including but not limited to: Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Keyboarding, and Data Entry.
These times will be varied based on the need of the department, not to exceed nine months. These assignments are not eligible for University benefits, including pay for holidays. As with any temporary staffing agency, there is never any guarantee for another assignment.
