Do assignments only last a couple of weeks at a time at the most?

It depends upon the assignment. Assignments can last anywhere from one day, to a couple of weeks or even a year. If you do a good job, like the company and the company is pleased with your efforts, you can be hired full-time. The bonus of working with a staffing agency is that you get exposed to a variety of companies, positions and opportunities that you may not have otherwise. After three or four long-term assignments, you’ll have a much better idea of what you’re looking for in terms of company culture, the type of management that you work best with, and the type of work you enjoy doing.

Do staffing companies only work with entry level, administrative type candidates?

Twenty years ago it may have been the case that staffing agencies only worked with entry level candidates. Today, firms place professional, managerial, technical and specialized candidates at all levels throughout their careers.
