How to Move from a Temp Employee to a Permanent Hire in 2017

January 3rd, 2017

Are you looking to find a great job in 2017? The only thing better than kicking off the new year with a new job is beginning the new year with a job that has the promise to turn into a solid career. When you’re looking for a job, you should consider a temp-to-hire position.

What is Temp-to-Hire?

A temp-to-hire position is a hiring practice that allows companies to make educated hiring decisions. Companies offer potential employees a “trial” period before bringing them on full-time. It’s a similar idea to “try before you buy.” During this time period, the company is able to assess and evaluate job performance.

This temp-to-hire opportunity is also beneficial to you, the prospective employee. You’re able to see the workings of the company and the culture first-hand. Just as they are evaluating your performance, you can also consider how you fit within the company.

How to Find & Convert a Temp-to-Hire Position

Working with a staffing agency is your best way to find temp-to-hire opportunities. They have a pool of client companies who are looking to fill those positions and can help you find a match that is promising for your skills and career goals.

Once you land a temp-to-hire position, it’s time to work hard and prove that you are the right addition to the company. You will be evaluated closely, basically auditioning, for the job. Be yourself of course, and don’t create a false image, but absolutely do your best. Just as you want to excel and perform your best at a permanent job, this is no different. Get to know the team you’re working with, ask questions, collaborate, and meet your deadlines.

5 Tips to Develop Yourself Professionally

June 15th, 2015

Want to know the single best way to get better jobs at better companies with higher compensation? Make professional development an ongoing priority. The skills you learn in school and on the job are not enough to keep pace with the rate of change in today’s business world. If you want to stay ahead of the curve and always be an asset, you have to be proactive and dedicate some of your own time to the cause. Here are five tips to help you get more out of your professional development efforts:

Look for Resources

There are tons of available resources to help you develop professionally. Start by finding out if your current employer offers tuition reimbursement, incentives for picking up certifications, or flexible scheduling while you are pursuing schooling. Then expand your search to identify the courses, programs, seminars, conferences, and professional networks that can aid your professional growth.

Join a Professional Organization

One of the primary missions of many professional organizations is to help their members expand their skill sets. These organizations regularly offer opportunities for members to interact, collaborate, and exchange training. Joining one or more of these organizations provides you with a lot of valuable assets and can give your professional development efforts more form and function than they would have otherwise.

Accept New Challenges

You can do a lot to develop yourself professionally by simply accepting new types of assignments at work. Let your boss know about your intentions and he will be much more likely to accommodate you. Not only does this help you pick up new skills and insights, it also helps improve your standing at your current job and highlights your professional ambitions.

Create a Plan

Since professional development is ongoing, it helps to be systematic about it so that you stay on course. Create a plan for yourself that lists your professional goals in a year, three years, five years, 10 years and so on. Then assign yourself benchmarks, and plan out the steps you will take at each interval to make sure you are on track to reach the next one. Make sure you regularly review this plan, track your progress, and avoid making compromises.

Take on a Mentor

Professional mentors take many forms. It could be someone who had an identical job to yours, a related job, or simply someone who had a successful career. In any form, they can give you guidance and advice based on their own experience. They can also offer you a valuable outsider perspective on your own career, and hold you accountable when mistakes or setbacks occur.

Professional development is step one. Capitalizing on it is step two. When are ready to make the most of the time and effort you’ve put in, contact The Concorde Group.
