Can temporary jobs turn permanent?

The cafe job I was supposed to start didn't work out because they are closed for the time being because of the CoronaVirus.

I see that a lot of retail places like Target, Ralphs, and Costco are still hiring. I would assume the same kind of skills are needed in both a cafe and retail store.

The only bad thing is a lot of the roles are temporary. If I apply for one of these, is there a chance it could become a normal role? I am in highschool and can only work part time anyway. Is that something I can ask about? Sorry for all the questions, this is my first job!!

Hi Lin, great question! They absolutely can. I've spent my entire career working with staffing companies and anytime a company is willing to hire someone on for a temporary role, either through a staffing company or directly for seasonal/peak help, they are always looking for a way to extend permanent opportunities to employees that do well in their roles. Good luck!

Hello Lin Dow,

Temporary jobs can most definitely turn into something more. I have been offered a permanent position more than once from a temporary job. Not only that but you have a greater opportunity to learn many important things about the culture of the organization, the benefits offered, opportunities for advancement, other open positions in the company, etc. Use the time in your temporary job to ask questions, meet different managers and even network with anyone your job may put you in contact with to advertise your availability and skills for future employment opportunities. Don't forget to always think outside of the box when seeking employment opportunities, because many available jobs are not advertised but are learned through word of mouth. Network, network and network!

Regards,

Patrick Coppedge

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently seeking a job and I actually have an appointment with a temp agency later today. Do those places really help?
