How Temp to Perm Jobs Can Help Your Career

Temp to perm, or temporary to permanent, jobs are increasingly popular among light industrial, financial, and administrative companies. Temporary jobs fulfilled by a staffing agency, such as First Team Staffing, are often a way for companies to find excellent new permanent employees. If you are searching for a new job, a temp to perm position can offer you significant and useful benefits for developing your long-term career. 

Temp to Perm Jobs Help You Make Connections

Working in a temp to perm position gives you an excellent opportunity to talk to your co-workers and to make connections. Employers in any industry like to know the kind of person they are hiring and whether or not they are trustworthy or a good team player. Making connections within your industry will increase the number of people who feel comfortable recommending and referring you to various positions. 

Expands Your Skill Set

Temp to perm jobs allow you to develop and hone your skills. Every new skill you learn is something you can add to your resume and talk about in interviews. Learning new skills also increases the number of jobs you are qualified for and can submit applications for.

Gain Work Experience

Temp to perm jobs are a valuable way to add experience to your resume. These positions require you to use old and new skills and ask you to learn how to work in different environments, whether they be warehouses, offices, docks, or machine shops. The varied and skilled work experience gained from temp to perm jobs will prepare you for any future responsibilities. 

Gain Full-Time Employment

Temp to perm jobs are positions that begin as temporary but have the opportunity to lead to permanent work if the role is right. If you impress your employer and do your job well, you have a good chance of being hired on at the company. Employers are likely to prefer this method because it allows them to hire someone they already know, and to hire them for a role in which they already have experience. Acquiring a full-time job will give you more consistent hours and pay, and will allow you to start growing within that company and gaining even more knowledge and skills.
