    I wouldn't say 'owned', but they're the ones you worked for and who can do a reference etc.

    So it depends on the agency?

    What happens if you are student looking for a one year placement? Are you owned by the company or agent?

    So on your CV do you put the agency as your place of work or do you put your actual company?

    OMD whats with the questions?! Just ask them if you have any questions.

    With my CV, they took it and put their logo at the top and took away my contact details etc because when the interviewer looks at the CV, they speak to the agency if they like you or not, therefore they don't need your contact details.

    I don't know what happens in a load of different instances...don't you have connexions or something at uni?!

    You should avoid Conexxions like the plague, they are hopeless. But every University has a careers service and you should make as much use of it as you can, from your first term onwards!
