You’re ready to find a new job, and like most people, you’re probably laser-focused on permanent positions. What you don’t realize, is failing to expand your horizons can cause you to miss out on opportunities that can change your life for the better.
Temp-to-hire jobs offer a variety of benefits that can boost your career. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by putting this type of position on your radar.
Find Your Dream Job
Traditionally, you meet with an employer a few times — or even just once — before a hiring decision is made. This doesn’t give you the opportunity to really immerse yourself in the job and the company culture, to make sure it’s the right fit.
The exact opposite is true when you accept a temp-to-hire position. In this situation, you’re able to test drive the job to make sure you enjoy both the responsibilities associated with it and the company culture.
Expand Your Network
Every opportunity you accept comes with a new set of colleagues you’re able to work alongside. Each of these people has a network filled with connections who might be able to help you find your next big break.
If you’re a team player who takes the time to get to know your co-workers, they’ll want to stay in touch when your contract ends. People enjoy helping contacts they respect and admire, so these relationships could prove invaluable.
Fill a Key Gap
You’re a talented professional who can get any job you want, but if you don’t currently have all the skills needed to stand out from other candidates, it’s important to change that. A temp-to-hire job can flesh out your resume in all the right areas, so take advantage of this opportunity to learn and grow. Even if this particular position isn’t right for you, it will prepare for the job that is.
Earn Income and Benefits
Finding the right job for your skills and interests can take time. However, if you’re currently unemployed — or seriously unhappy in your current job and eager to quit — you might feel obligated to take the first offer that comes along, just to earn a paycheck and benefits.
In addition to a steady paycheck, many temp agencies provide workers with a benefits package. This allows you to enjoy a sense of security, so you can take your time finding the right job for you.
