Finding the top-notch professional for your office. As busy as Washington, DC area businesses are, there are times when the to-do list gets too long! It may seem like there is no way you can dig yourself out from under that stack of projects. Certainly, bringing in someone new – someone YOU have to train – is out of the question. When you’re needs are specific and urgent, that’s the best time to hire Contemporaries. We specialize in matching the most qualified contract employee of a specific project. We understand the unique challenges of our area and of federal government agencies because we are located in the DC area too. We understand the necessity of finding the right kind of skills and knowledge for your office. 

Maternity and paternity leave employees. We all understand the importance of spending time with families. But we also realize how disrupting it can be when someone has to leave for a while. Between the planning, oversight and follow-through on any project, when key people aren’t working, the project suffers and can even be delayed. We can help by finding the right contract worker, or temp, to help with all phases of a project or contract. Instead of disorganization or chaos, your office can continue to function smoothly. The right employee can start helping immediately. As one of the top-rated temp agencies in Washington DC under GSA Federal Supply Schedule for Schedule 736, we can provide the best candidates. Our quality staffing selection has over 90 years of experience in both office and management positions.

Short and Long-term Positions. When you hit the busiest time of the year – which might be tax season if you’re in the accounting business – your plans to be proactive and organized can fly right out the window! You really don’t want your employees to experience the burnout that comes with long hours and increasing workload. That’s where we can help. We’ll find the specialized temporary worker you need – someone who can start helping you right away. If it’s experience you need, we often have retired accountants or retired government workers who can fill a position quickly, easily and professionally! And if you want to hire someone now, with the possibility of offering them a full-time position later, we can find the right candidate for you. Knowing what your plans are when you hire Contemporaries helps us find the perfect candidate for your office. 

Relieving the hassle of hiring employees. Finding the right employee – the one who will fit into your office, have the right skills and work independently – takes time. Contemporaries takes care of the details. We can help you create a realistic job description, interview candidates and ask the right questions, conduct performance reviews, provide temp to perm employees and make sure the candidate fits your company culture. In short, we streamline the entire hiring process

Let’s talk. If you sometimes hire temp employees, full-time employees or are interested in temp-to-perm availability, give us a call. We’re happy to discuss your needs and give you an idea of the options available to your organization.
