Wild June!

It was a wild month here at Blaine and Associates! Not only have we seen a significant increase in requests for temporary employees, our Special Events division was busier than ever! We staffed a major Stop Smoking campaign in conjunction with the State Board of Health and several non-profit agencies, placing almost 50 of our applicants at locations throughout Los Angeles County. Reports from our temps said the assignment was "exhilarating" and "loads of fun."

Not bad for a temp job, eh?

Then just this past weekend we staffed the 2009 BET Awards: 102 staffers in all. Always a massive event, this year's ceremony coming on the heels of Michael Jackson's death was particularly so. Our employees ended up with a bird's eye seat for the Jackson tribute, and a story to tell for years to come.

Also not bad for a temp job, eh?

And that's just a sneak peek at our events schedule. For a full breakdown of what's happening in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas, please check out the Special Events/Convention Calendar on our website!

Bottom line: there is still work to be had! Interested in joining our temp roster? Give our office a call at 310-785-0560 to schedule an appointment!
