Transition from Temporary to Permanent Employee

There are some people who begin work not as a permanent employee but rather as a temp. Whatever the case may be, being a temp does not end at just a temporary position but can lead to a permanent position so long as the time and effort into the job is put forth and noticeable. Here are a couple of tips to help you transition from a temporary position to a permanent position.

Make your work noticeable.

Many people treat a temporary position as just that, temporary, while others treat it as a steppingstone to become a permanent employee. In either case, as an employee of the company, one should put forth 100% to their work. Some temporary workers treat their jobs differently as if their work would be different if they were permanent employees at their place of business. If you want to land a permanent position at that company, you should not take the work lightly. Treat it as if you were a permanent employee and work to your highest potential. Having people notice your work is important, especially if you want to transition from temporary to permanent. Make sure that the quality of your work is what it would be if you were a permanent employee.

Dress accordingly.

Dressing for the position is important as well. Dress professionally and most likely you will be treated like a professional. Be sure to ask for the company dress code before you begin your temporary employment at the company. Remember to always follow the dress code, even if you feel that nobody is paying attention to your attire.

Get to know some of the employees.

Getting to know some of the employees is at the company is a good way to earn your way into a permanent position. Just because you are a temp does not mean that you should just shut yourself to a corner, interact with the employees and socialize with them, they may be the people who can recommend you become a permanent employee at the company. Who knows, you might even become good friends with the hiring manager.

Go the extra mile.

Lastly, make people know that you are dedicated to the company. If you feel that you have extra time on your hands and can take on extra work, ask for some. If you feel that you have to stay a little after your normal work schedule just to finish a task, stay a while longer. If you feel that you can do more challenging tasks than the one that is given to you, request to take on more challenging work; by doing so, you show your supervisor or upper management that you are dedicated to the company and that you would make a valuable asset if they hired you on board permanently.
