ColonialTemp for Office of Budget and Finance - Executive Assistant
ColonialTemp from Sept to Nov 2013, then transitioned to full-time employment


I enjoyed my experience so much. I knew that I wanted to stay at GW. It was a smooth transition from a temp to a permanent position. The tuition benefit is attractive, and my long-term career goals are to finish my bachelors’ degree and my dream would be to pursue my law degree. Just working here opens up those possibilities.

The experience that I’ve had with ColonialTemps has far exceeded my expectations. I have been in the legal industry for a long time and I’ve always used the legal employment agencies because I thought that was the only place where I could find quality legal people. I have to admit that at first I was reluctant to use ColonialTemps, but I was surprised. I call ColonialTemps, and by the next day, I’ve got a superstar.

ColonialTemp from Oct 2013 to Mar 2014, then transitioned to full-time employment


ColonialTemps was a perfect match. I enjoyed the work. The temp position was a trial run and they gave me the responsibilities of a full-time employee so in the end, my transition was smooth. This job provides a lot of financial sustainability and benefits. ColonialTemps got me that opportunity – something that I’ve been seeking for many years.

ColonialTemp at Human Resources - ATS Auditor
ColonialTemp from Aug to Oct 2012, then transitioned full-time employment


William interviewed me right away, and he welcomed the new temps to GW. It was a great way to start off working at an organization. I got an assignment doing auditing-type work. For me it was a really good experience. I wanted to continue working at GW and the HR rep role was a really good fit. I think GW provides plenty of opportunities for changing your career or moving up.

Working at GW has been a life-changing experience. There’s a mission and we all work together to make things happen. Because GW offers such a great discount I will be starting at GW this fall in GSHED. My supervisor was accommodating. This is an amazing community to work in and I'll recommend it to anyone. Going through ColonialTemps I’ve learned a lot.
