Staffing agencies sometimes provide survival jobs. I've signed up with a couple of staffing agencies. I've had a couple of assignments as a receptionist. The last time I worked as a receptionist I was in college. That was my summer job. For me being a receptionist is a survival job but it is honest work. I was happy to get it.
Here is a link to an article about working with staffing agencies. (The truth about temporary staffing services) I'm following the author's (Nicole King) suggestions; particularly the one about taking short term assignments. I think you'll find the information helpful.
