    Pros

    Temporary employment is my niche, Kelly Temporary a perfect fit.
    A body of experiences in Legal and Law enforcement, in Phoenix through Kelly.
    East Residents who move else where, will usually employ very rapidly.

    Cons

    I wish I could have developed my experiences in Philly with Kelly, yet it happened in Phoenix.
    I will be job seeking, now my temp experience gets tested.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the obvious sometimes, trust your gut instinct.
