How should I list temporary jobs on my resume?
I lived in another state for a year. While I was there I worked three temporary jobs (one for three weeks, one for six months, and one for five months) acquired through a staffing agency.

Should I list the employer as the actual place I worked at, or should I list it as the name of the staffing agency, and then beneath that list the place I worked at? Or is there some other way I should do it?
