Many employers use temp-to-hire as a source of new talent
Employers often use temp-to-hire as a way to test out new employees. When you’re hired for a temp position, you’ll get the opportunity to prove yourself on the job and show what you can do. Some employers are more likely to hire from within their pool of temps than they are from outside candidates, especially if it turns out that there’s already someone in your company who fits perfectly into the role. This is especially true if there has been turnover in that department recently, or if the department itself has undergone recent expansion or reorganisation.
If you’re interested in making your temp position permanent, it’s important that you do everything possible during your time there (both as an employee AND a candidate) so that when it comes time for renewal discussions between all parties involved (you included), they have no choice but give in the position full time!
