1. Foot in the Door

Have you recently graduated? Are you looking to change careers? Are you returning to the workforce from maternity/paternity leave? Whatever your situation may be, a temporary to permanent role is a great way to transition, and for you to get your foot in the door. 

2. Try Out the Position

The term "temp to perm" means just what it says. This is a position that starts out on a temporary basis, with the potential for permanent employment if you meet the employer's requirements, and you work the number of hours agreed upon in your employment contract. The number of hours needed varies based on the position. 

Temporary to permanent roles provide the employer with insight into how you work within their team, and how you succeed with tasks at hand. So, temporary to permanent employment is also your chance to see if you like the position. If you do, the position could become permanent. And if you don't, that's okay. We'll try our best to find you something more suitable. 

3. Earn Money

If you're waiting to land a permanent job, and you won't consider a temporary, or a temporary to permanent role, this may be a mistake. You'll be losing out on many great job opportunities. Not only that, but you'll be missing out on earning money. If you accept a temp to perm role, you could be earning money. Instead, you may be waiting around for a permanent job to appear. This could take weeks, even months. Months without earning income is troublesome, especially when you have bills to pay. 

Better to earn a paycheque today than to wait for a job that may not be available for awhile. 

4. Add to Your Resume

Temporary to permanent roles are just like any other employment opportunity. You can definitely add this position to your resume. Note the skills and experience you've gained while working the temporary to permanent job.

It's better to take on a temp to perm role than to have large gaps on your resume, as you wait for a permanent position to become available. 

5. Could Become Permanent

And just like it's name describes, a "temp to perm" job means that the opportunity could lead to permanent employment. In fact, many hiring managers employ temp to perm staff because they are hoping that you'll be a good fit, and will stay on and become a permanent employee. No employer wants to go through the whole onboarding process again with a new employee. This takes time, and costs the company money. 

If you want a permanent job, you could obtain one from a temporary to permanent contract. A temp to permanent role is all about what you make it.
