Temp Work to Full Time Position: Can You Dig It?

February 23, 2010

Can you dig turning a temp job into a full-time job? If so, read this…

In today’s economy it’s easier to land a temp job than a full-time position.  Simply, employers are scared and don’t want to face layoffs.  They are tough on both sides of the table.  So temps have become the new thing to do in small business.  You could land a temp job or already have a temp job and might want to make it a little more regular.

Well do this:

  • Fix problems: If you’re a temp or hope to be one, when you’re working, do more than you’re job description.
  • Connect: Meet people, become part of the team, and show why you’re valuable to the company.
  • Work smarter: We are all lucky to work if we can so be smarter.  Do the highest ROI tasks. Don’t waste time.

These are some simple tips and if you’re interested in reading more about turning a temp position into a full time gig check out this blog post from Anita Bruzzese
