Temporary Employment

Recruiting a temporary employee just got easier. Purdue now has a contract with Knowledge Services that makes hiring a temporary employee a no-hassle, one-stop shop.

When your department needs a temporary employee, you’ll fill out an online intake form and describe your need. Knowledge Services does the rest: temporary staffing agencies bid through the Knowledge Services system, Knowledge Services does the screening … as well as the orientation and the onboarding. Hiring managers can conduct the interviews, but there’s no paperwork for the department to complete.

So remember: if you need temporary staffing coverage for food service, clerical, skilled trades, custodial, and professional positions, among others, this new partnership simplifies that process.

Areas throughout the University may require temporary staff for a variety of reasons, including vacations, leaves of absence, special projects and seasonal peaks.
