How do you list temporary jobs in a resume?

I worked two temporary jobs for a very short time, at around 2 weeks max for each. Otherwise I have zero work experience. How do I include those in my resume without seeming both inexperienced and braggy? I'm looking for a full-time job for someone who just got of high school. (And yes, I am applying for university next year.) Thank you in advance. I wasn't placed by an agency.

Just include the word "Temp" or "Temporary short term contract" or something along those lines for each job. E.g. if you were a receptionist at one you could say your job title was "Receptionist (Temp)". So long as its clear you didn't quit after a couple of weeks or get fired that quickly you're ok.

Jan 2012 to March 2012 Temporary assignments. If the person interviewing you is interested in more details, he can always ask.

If you went through a temp agency you could always list that agency as your employer. Which is true. They are the company that hired you, they are the company that paid you, and the jobs you went on were clients you serviced... More

The way to do this is as follows: May 2012 - June 2012 (Staffing company that placed you) City Title of Positions - Contract Employment (I usually have my clients put Contract instead of Temporary) - List what you did as many bullet points that your need Hopefully that helps!
