Is Temp-to-Hire Your Path to a Full-Time Job in 2018?

December 14th, 2017

If you’ve been in the job market you’re probably aware of temp to hire opportunities. But maybe you’ve been concerned about taking on a role like this because you’re uncertain how it would impact your career path. But there are many reasons to consider temp-to-hire. Before you kick off the New Year in 2018, consider these potential benefits to working with a staffing agency to find a temp-to-hire position for you.

It can lead to full-time work.

The ultimate goal of a temp-to-hire position is to lead to full-time work, but that doesn’t mean your work is done when you accept the job. The employer is using this time to evaluate your performance and experience to make sure you’re the right person for their permanent position. If you do a great job throughout the temporary portion, you will be offered that permanent position.

It gives you a chance to try out the job.

But the experience goes both ways. Temp-to-hire means that you also get to check out the company and the specific job to determine if it is right for you. If you have any concerns or hesitations, you can discuss it with your recruiter and work out a solution for the problem or terminate the assignment and look for something else.

It builds relationships with a recruiter.

Your recruiter becomes your employment partner. They can work with you to find the right position. If one doesn’t work out, you can use that experience to find a better match. But it will also build a long-term working relationship that can last into the future if you’re ever in the hunt for another position or you are in a position to hire for your new organization.

It can get you working faster.

Many companies approach a staffing agency before they advertise a position to the general public. This means when you are established with an agency you will hear about new positions before they are published online or through any other local channels. Your recruiter wants to have you working as quickly as possible so they will do what they can to ensure that you are not out of the job market for very long.
