Temp to hire jobs are becoming more and more popular in the job market. As the economy recovers from The Great Recession, employers are creating new jobs and seeking new talent to fill them. However, because of trends in job hopping among candidates, businesses are reluctant to invest so much on people that may or may not end up leaving. In this blog, we want to discuss why temp to perm services are helping both businesses and job seekers in today’s market, and why both parties should consider taking advantage of this employment model.


Why the Temp to Hire Model Benefits Employees

Let’s face it. If you’re a millennial, the chances are pretty darn good that you’re hopping jobs every 1-3 years. However, other generations have been known to be hopping around as well. While there may be some minor rewards for job hopping, there can be some other obstacles too, and the trend has caused more employers to utilize Temp to Hire models when it comes to recruiting new employees.

However, this doesn’t mean that the temp to hire model can only benefit the employer. Candidates can also take advantage of the model by trying out the business to see if it will be a good fit for them. Instead of job hopping every 1-3 years, employees can try out an employer for 3 months, and decide if they would like to make a commitment. Once the commitment has been made, however, it would be best to make an effort to keep the job.
