In this economy, employers are reluctant to fill full-time, permanent positions. Hiring a temporary contract employee is a less expensive alternative for companies. It also allows the employer to get the help they need without a long term commitment.
If you’re reading our blog, you’re probably interested in a job in the IT industry. The good news for you is that thousands and thousands of temporary, temp-to-perm, short-term contract, and per diem positions are added to the IT industry every month.
One of the best ways to go about finding a good temporary or IT contract jobs in the IT field is to use a staffing firm that specializes in the industry, like MAS Technology Staffing. We have a number of contract positions available in the Boston market!
Some people are reluctant to take a contract position, because they would rather hold out for a permanent position. Understandable. Who wants to do a job search all over again in a few months? But look at it this way – wouldn’t you rather be building up your resume (and making money) than doing nothing at all? (Not to mention, when you’re working with MAS Tech, we take care of that whole pesky job search for you.)
Should you choose to take a contract job, it’s best to keep sending out your resume. There is no guarantee it will turn into a permanent position. The best chance you have to make your temporary position a permanent one is to do a great job. Prove to your employer that you are a crucial member of their staff by going above and beyond the required tasks. Be on time consistently, and show them that you are indispensable!
