Contract to Hire
A contract-to-hire job can be a win-win for both the employer and employee. These are short-term opportunities typically varying for anywhere from three months up to a year, with the opportunity to become full-time, permanent jobs at the end of the contract. This form of job is becoming more popular as companies look to try before they buy.
Contract-to-hire roles are prevalent within any industry in today’s workplace and can be found in a number of job categories and roles such as accounting, marketing, sales, information technology, management, administrative, project management, and more. JobOnCloud currently specializes in hiring professionals with expertise in salesforce development, business analyst and other salesforce industry job of roles being contract-to-hire. In current time, more jobs in salesforce development, management, and business communications transition into contract-to-hire roles.
Many job seekers overlook contract-to-hire opportunities because they are searching for that permanent, full-time position with health and retirement benefits and because they fear they could be faced with a gap in employment on their resume and be forced to go without a paycheck if the contract runs out.
The contract-to-hire process typically moves fairly quickly. Before entering into a contract-to-hire situation, clients should outline the terms – how talent will be evaluated and when the contract period ends. Clients should also maintain open lines of communication and provide consistent feedback to put the talent at ease. Once a permanent position is offered and accepted, talent transition from the staffing agency’s payroll to the client’s payroll. Contract-to-hire offers many benefits for talent and employers when both have sincere intentions. A hybrid of temporary and direct hire, contract-to-hire is a way for clients and talent to test the waters. It allows potential employees to prove themselves to the company and see if the culture is a good fit.
