Welcome to The City. A recent economic downturn has shifted the employment landscape from steady full-time occupations to short-term, part-time, and contract work. With so many skilled workers searching for a decent job ... actually, any job ... a new opportunity lies in your path. You have recently opened a new temporary employment agency to help place struggling workers in contract jobs. Find workers, upgrade their skills, and send them to the job centre to fill the open positions. When they find a job and get paid, you get your cut too. Sounds easy in this economy, right?
Unfortunately, you’re not the only entrepreneur in The City to have the exact same idea! It’s a competitive race for both money and reputation as you manoeuvre your workers to the front of the employment line to claim the best jobs. Unless they find work, you don’t get paid.
Will you dominate The City’s temp agency scene, or join the ranks of the underemployed?
