Advantages to Temp to Hire for the Client
Temp to Hire emerged as a popular way for companies to hire administrative staff and industrial staff in the mid 1980’s. Companies use Temp to Hire to manage early turnover and to make sure that the person who came in for the interview, is the same person who shows up for the job. In other words it is a try before you buy scenario. Recently Temp to Hire or Contract to Hire has become more popular in the IT sector of staffing as well as companies seek to convert talented technical contractors to full time regular staff.
Advantages for the Applicant
Temp to Hire can be a great way for you as a job seeker to make sure that the job you took is the one that was described to you in the interview. It gives you a chance to make sure that this is the company you want to work for. In addition, thousands of people are hired every day that started out on a "temp" assignment that was not ever intended to lead to regular full time employment. Talent and dedication are not commodities. They are hard to come by. If you accept a temporary assignment and you exhibit dedication, knowledge and work ethic, many companies will not want to "let you go" and will make arrangements with the staffing firm to hire you. At Webridge, we have made many such placements resulting in not only jobs, but careers.
