4 Steps To Convert Temp To Perm Jobs



As I shared in a recent article http://goo.gl/sO1446 the most recent BLS numbers show only 192,000 new, full time positions were created last month. This raised the average, during the first four months of 2014, to a miniscule 138,500 jobs created. However, the U.S. economy is still creating a lot of temporary jobs and you can leverage these into full time employment using a strategy of temp-to-perm conversions. This means that an employer will hire an employee, such as an engineer, scientist, R&D, IT, manufacturing or technical professional, on a temporary basis, try them out for some period of time and then eventually convert them to a full time employee. I recommend FOUR STEPS to do so. First, continue to explore all your full time employment options. Second, uncover top temporary employment agencies best suited to meeting your needs. For example, please go to http://asacentral.americanstaffing.net/ASADirectory/Home/CompanySearch for the American Staffing Association's database. It will guide you to the best temporary agencies based upon such factors as location and occupational category. Third, contact those temporary agencies that seem to meet your requirements. Ask to speak to a recruiter that handles your field. Prepare and ask them a short list of questions including: 1. Who are some of your clients? 2. How many placements have you made in my field in the last six months? 3. How many of those placements were converted to full time positions? 4. What are the prospects for my field? Based upon this phone conversation (or unwillingness of the temp agency to either allow you to speak to a recruiter or answer these questions) decide which firms will best meet your needs. Finally, narrow the list to 3-4 contract temporary placement firms that you feel best meet your needs and list with them. This is the case since each firm has its own select sampling frame of key clients. Therefore, you need to make sure that your needs are fully covered with all the proper employers within your desired geographic areas and fields.
