After reading through our job descriptions, you may see that some of our temporary positions are actually temp-to-hire. If you haven’t worked with a staffing agency in the past, this may be a foreign term.
A temp-to-hire job is one that starts out as a temporary assignment, but the company is most likely looking for a permanent employee to sit in that role eventually. Instead of hiring the employee permanently right away, the organization wants to make sure that the employee is going to be the right fit. When a company chooses this option, it is usually because they have been burned by a bad hire one too many times in the past.
During this temporary trial period, you are an employee of KRG, but working at our client’s location. It’s important to keep in mind that there is no guarantee that the position will become permanent, but a chance at a permanent position is better than no position, right?
Sounds like a good deal for the company, but what’s in it for you?
- You’ll have a chance to prove yourself and land a job you may have never been considered for. Maybe you didn’t meet all of the qualifications they were originally asking for, but you can prove to them that you can learn quickly.
- You’ll make new connections. Even if the position doesn’t become permanent, connect with your new contacts on LinkedIn and stay in touch. You never know what doors this will open up for you down the road.
- You’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills, or touch up on the skills you already have.
- You also have a say. You need to figure out if this position is a good fit for you, as well. If you decide that the position isn’t right for you, you have the opportunity to walk away before things become permanent.
Go into the temp-to-hire job open-minded and with confidence. Work hard and leave the company with no choice but to make you a permanent member of their team.
