So you’ve landed a temp-to-hire job. Congratulations! Temporary to permanent positions means that you have the opportunity to land a great, long-lasting career, if you play your cards right.
Temp-to-hire jobs are often viewed as an audition period, for both the employer and employee. Employers will get a taste of your productivity level, and how you fit into their company culture, while employees get a chance to see what the position is all about.
If you’re ideal goal is to obtain a permanent role, read on for how you can increase your chances of turning a temp-to-hire job into a permanent position.
Build Strong Relationships with Team Members
You must treat your temp-to-hire job as if it’s already a permanent role. Make sure to go out of your way to meet all of the team members within the company. By building strong professional connections, you will increase your chances of landing a permanent role. Hiring managers are less likely to go with another candidate if they know that you are a good fit within the company.
Go Above and Beyond
If you have finished your tasks, go above and beyond your scheduled responsibilities. Ask coworkers and managers if they need help. Make sure to leave a positive impression of yourself and your work ethic, to better ensure you land the permanent role. Start off on the right foot, and make your mark at your new job.
Dress the Part
One of the easier things that you can do to increase your chances of obtaining a permanent career is to dress the part. Dress for the job that you want. Wear appropriate, professional-looking clothing for the role that you are looking to obtain.
Be on Time
This may seem like a small thing to accomplish, but being on time can be a huge make-or-break situation. If you are constantly late to your work assignment, the potential employer is less likely to hire you because of unreliability. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Be sure to be on time to your temp-to-hire job.
Voice Your Desires
If you haven’t voiced your desires to the hiring manager/supervisor that you would like to stay on with the company permanently, make your intentions known. It’s a good idea to check in with your manager/supervisor every couple of weeks to remind him/her that you would like to stay on board, especially as you get closer and closer to completing the number of hours required before you’re hired on permanently.
