Don’t Miss Out on Temp-to-Hire Opportunities!
Many healthcare professionals value the security that comes with a direct job offer. They know that after an introductory period, typically 90 days, they will have the salary and benefits that come from a permanent position. Other professionals like the flexibility and variety offered by temporary positions
But there’s a third option – “temp-to-hire” – that can provide job seekers with the best of both worlds. Taking a temporary position with the expectation that it will turn into a permanent role gives you an opportunity to get to know the organization and decide if it’s a good fit. Of course, the healthcare organization will be evaluating your performance as well – just as it would if you had taken a direct job offer.
What many candidates don’t realize is that many hospitals, clinics, laboratories and other healthcare organizations will advertise an opening as “temp-to-hire” rather than “direct hire.” There may be many reasons for this approach, such as the timing of an employee’s departure, budget considerations or the seasonal nature of the workload.
In other cases, the organization might advertise a job temp-to-hire because it may be a challenge to find well-qualified candidate. The company might find it necessary to hire a marginal candidate, hoping that a skills or training deficit might be overcome in a short period. If that happens, the organization can make the position permanent. If not, then the temporary assignment comes to an end and both the candidate and the employer look at new options.
