If you are having difficulty finding the next job on your career path, it might be a great time to consider a temp-to-permanent position. These types of jobs are often overlooked, but they could be the answer to finding you the next job that advances you in your career.
 

What is a Temp-to-Perm Job?

A temp-to-permanent job is when a company hires an employee for a period of time (example: 105 days) and then after that time, decides whether or not to hire them full-time.

Three Reasons You Should Consider a Temp-to-Perm Job

To understand why you should apply for temp-to-permanent job openings, consider these three big reasons.

1. Test Drive the Job & Company

One huge advantage of a temp-to-permanent job is the fact that you are able to basically test drive the job position and the company. Through hands-on experience, you’ll be able to decide whether or not you like the type of work you were hired to do. This is especially a great option if you’re getting into a new industry or are unfamiliar with some of the responsibilities necessary to be successful in this new job. If you decide that the skills or responsibilities, or the company itself, doesn’t mesh with your career goals or aspirations, you are free to leave without any hard feelings. We guarantee you we’ll place you in another job.

2. Find Your Fit

Before you start, we will make sure that you are a fit for the company you’re placed with and vice versa. Company culture is equally important as skill set. You can match with a company perfectly when it comes to skill set, but if you don’t match when it comes to company culture, it will not work out in the long run. At Absolute Jobs, we have tools in place to make that perfect match.

3. Get to Know Your Co-workers & Manager

As you work alongside your co-workers and managers, you can develop strong professional relationships. You might find a wonderful mentor, regardless of whether or not you stay at the company past the temporary period. You may also make some great friends along the way. Whether you are offered the chance to join the company full-time or not, these connections are valuable.

Companies Receive These Benefits, Too

Just as you have three great reasons to try a temp-to-perm position, companies benefit with those same three reasons. At the end of the day, you are looking to achieve your career goals. Perform your best at your current job and you may get offered a full-time permanent position. If not, you’ll have fostered valuable relationships that will be great references for another job opportunity.
