Expand Your Knowledge: A temp-to-perm position is a great opportunity to learn another line of business, acquire a new set of skills or absorb information that could be useful in the future. Many companies also offer training programs for their temp-to-perm employees. In these instances, if an offer is extended, you will have all the tools to succeed on the job. If an offer is not extended, you will have added to your skill set and increased your wealth of knowledge, escalating your market value as a job seeker.
Potential Pay Increase: If you work hard and collaborate well with staff, it’s possible you will be extended a permanent offer. Not only will you now receive company benefits, but you will also earn a pay increase. The amount will vary depending on the company and position.
Other benefits of temporary-to-permanent employment that stress the “temporary” side include:
Boost Your Resume Experience: If you have minimal work experience, a temp-to-perm position is perfect for beefing up your resume. Although the position may not be your ideal career, you can include newly acquired skills on your resume that may help you snag your dream job.
Pursue a Variety of Careers: If you are uncertain of your career path, a temp-to-perm position allows you to dapple in a variety of fields in order to find the perfect fit.
Earn Money: If you are unemployed and job searching, a temp-to-perm position allows you to earn money while continuing your job search on the weekends.
