Looking for a new job? Have you ever considered temporary-to-permanent work? There are plenty of good reasons for why to get a temp to perm job.

This type of job gives you the opportunity to increase your marketable skills and possibly even land a new, full-time job.

Many industries have embraced temp-to-work candidates, especially light industrial, administrative and financial companies. If you’re working in these fields especially, this unique type of work experience might be perfect for you.

Learn new skills

There’s nothing potential employers like to see more than all the right skills listed in your resume. And the more skills you add, the more hirable you become. When you work a temp-to-perm job, you’ll gain more on-the-job experience. You can list this job within your career history section with all the new things you learned. Or if your resume is functional, you can simply add on the skills you gained.

Connect with others

You’ll also be interacting with coworkers during your temp-to-perm assignment, and this means adding new connections to your professional network. You never quite know who will have the inside scoop on new jobs or who could be your next career mentor. The more people you meet, the wider your professional web. And that’s a good thing!

Find a new full-time job

The thing about temp-to-perm work is that it could turn into the offer of full-time employment. It all depends on how well your potential new boss feels you fit with the role and company. If it’s a good match, then you might receive a job offer. The good news is, you’ll already be familiar with the job and know if it’s a good choice for you. It’s a win-win, both for you and your employer.
