The NYC flagship branch of national outfit AppleOne has been placing temps and permanents in high-end media and finance positions in New York City since 1964. Apply online, or by phone.

Job lengths tend to vary (along with the heft of the paycheck), with temp wages beginning at $15 an hour, although exec positions obviously earn more.

Bon Temps Personnel Agency
Turns out your college stint playing secretary at your dad's law firm wasn't for naught. Bon Temps legal staffing, alive and kicking since 1977, is always looking for new blood in the form of legal secretaries, word processors, proofreaders, paralegals, contract attorneys and executive receptionists. While they require two years of experience at a New York City law firm, expect approximately $18 to $45 per hour, depending on the position and your qualifications. To apply, e-mail a rsum and cover letter to Beatrice Kaufman at beatrice@bontempsny.com. 80 Broad St at Stone St, No. 500, (212-732-3921, bontempsny.com)

Career Group Inc.
When someone is moved to write a flattering haiku on Yelp about a temp agency, chances are the group has something going for it. CG deals with finance, advertising, real estate and fashion companies and places its temps in office, clerk, assistant, customer-service and managerial positions. President Susan Levine has more than 30 years of experience in employment agencies, and while she won't divulge names, she assures us that CG has "very desirable clients." The agency also offers 401k eligibility for employees who complete a year of service and 1,000 hours on assignment. Receptionists make $12 to $18 an hour, whereas admins rake in between $15 and $35 an hour. As Levine explains, "If you have the skills, there is a job for you." Interested parties can e-mail their resume and cover letter to CGINY@careergroupinc.com. 1212 Sixth Ave between 47th and 48th Sts (212-750-8188, careergroupinc.com)

Clarity
Established in 2000, Clarity caters to a wide array of industries, with most placements found in the finance, marketing and consulting sectors. Clients include Bank of America, Young & Rubicam and Forbes magazine, and gigs—which are often straight admin jobs—can run from one day to a year and a half, and pay from $15 to $25 an hour. Applicants should have good communication and computer skills, plus a corporate background. The staff can even set you up at its IT headquarters in San Francisco or Palo Alto, California, or at its newer Clarity Technology Partners division in Richmond, if you're not dead set on staying in NYC. Visit the company's website to apply online. 8 W 38th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves, suite 502 (212-404-8000, claritystaffing.com)

Core Staffing
Core's friendly, helpful staff screens 3,000 applicants annually; opportunities include jobs in office support, marketing, PR, HR and finance.

BEWARE CORE STAFFING! I worked with them on two different occasions. The staff there is oddly rude and put-upon considering they are a staffing company. Whenever I've called in, I've been put on hold and ignored. The two jobs they placed me had verbally abusive managers and they sent me on a job interview, where the interviewer said I wasn't qualified enough for the position. Ultimately, they seem to work well at getting new clients but aren't respectful of your time if you are looking for work. I have had much better experience with Vanguard and Apple One.

This comment is not meant to be in anyway help full. I just wanted to point out something funny...Bon Temps is looking for "new blood"? Anyone else chuckle to themselves when they read that. Then I went on to read that the woman who runs it is believed to be evil...strange

Has any one ever heard anything about ELS Associates/Elisa Swiller?

Don't be stupid
Don't be stupid

Temp jobs are not as easy to get as they used to be, so don't let this be "the answer." If you're a graduate, start by contacting your school's Alumni network and have them try to get you in touch with people in the New York area. Temp agencies are swamped with resumes. It's worth a shot, but if you think about it, thousands of people have googled this website, and thousands are applying every week. Do not get your hopes up. Explore other avenues and prepare to be eating ramen noodles and rice for a while. Knowing someone seems to be the only way to get a decent advantage in this city. Email everyone you know in New York, call in some favors. Get your parents/siblings/friends to call everyone they know. And, if you can put your ego on the bench for a while, update your status on Facebook and let people know you're looking for work. Everyone can empathize with your situation because everyone has been in your position at one time or another. Also, people, don't be stupid. Stop posting your contact info as if employers are looking at this website. That's the laziest thing I've ever seen. If you want a job in this city, you're going to have to work a lot harder than that. Craigslist, monster, indeed, usajobs.gov, labor.ny.gov, idealist, etc. Haunt those websites daily. WORK on your resume. Start volunteering (visit the Nycares website). Most importantly, DON'T GIVE UP. Wake up everyday, and dedicate yourself to this process.

Stay away from Bon Temps. Woman is a crook. Guilty plea in 9/11 fraud Beatrice Kaufman, 69, pleaded guilty to third-degree grand larceny and fraud on Wed. Jan. 28 in connection with the World Trade Center disaster. The plea, entered the day her trial was to begin, was part of a deal that gets Kaufman a sentence of 52 weekends in jail in addition to paying restitution and fines totaling about $255,000. She remains free on $15,000 bail until her sentencing March 25. Kaufman admitted she got more than $58,700 from Chubb Insurance Co., and more than $8,000 each from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross and nearly $10,000 from Safe Horizons by falsely claiming the terror attack forced her out of her $5 million Downtown residence and office where she ran an employment agency. Kaufman admitted that on the morning of the attack she was in her summer home on Long Island and that she had no intention of returning soon to her Downtown office and home, which was being renovated. The plea requires Kaufman to make restitution to Chubb, FEMA and the charities and to pay fines of $162,520.
