Many applicants come to the Great Chicago Jobs Center interested in an increasingly popular method of hiring referred to as a "temp-to-hire" or "temp-to-perm" situation. This scenario starts with temporary employment through one of our temporary staffing divisions, and then converts into a permanent job with the organization or business you are working through. The advantage here allows both parties a chance to evaluate possible permanent employment before formal offers are extended and accepted.
While interviews are usually a good indicator of employment compatibility, it's even better to actually experience the job itself. Issues such as job duties, work environment and personalities can be evaluated first-hand before making a final commitment to accept a possible permanent job offer. If it proves a good match, final offers and hiring arrangements will be made. If it doesn't prove a good match, you can resume your permanent job search and continue working in a temporary capacity until the right job offer comes along.
There are two types of Temp-to-Hire situations. The first type occurs as an intended search, when both you and the firm are aware that the position you are considering is a Temp-to-Hire possibility. Intended Temp-to-Hire searches generally resemble the Direct-Hire process, which usually includes interviews and evaluations beforehand. Click Direct-Hire Job Placement for more details.
The second type occurs when neither you nor the company starts a temporary job with the intent to hire, but because a good match seems apparent, both you and the company consider permanent employment. The unintended Temp-to-Hire situation generally starts off as a traditional temporary work assignment. There is one thing to keep in mind; the permanent job offer may involve a different job description than the temporary job - one more suited for your unique skills and talents.
