How easy is it to get a temporary clerical or customer service job in the Newark, DE area?

I'm moving to the area in 2 weeks and can't do a long-distance job search (I live 2 hours away and work insane hours). My husband of 1 week is a student at the University of Delaware and had an apartment in the college's family housing practically thrown at him today. He jumped on it, so SURPRISE I'm moving to Newark on the 8th! Not a bad thing (we live near Dover DE, one of the most boring places on the planet and horrible to find a decent job in) so I'm glad to get out. I'm currently working as a department manager in a warehouse store so I have a lot of CS experience. I also have a lot of computer skills. I want to know how long to expect before getting an assignment through one of the temp agencies. I have a solid work history and I'm no slouch either. I can afford to be out of work for a month or 2 but still, I go crazy without work!

I used to live in Newark. It really isn't bad finding work there. Most of the temp jobs are with the big credit card banks. If you have customer service and computer skills, you might be better off applying at the banks directly because the benefits are better. There are plenty of other temp jobs in that area and... More
