Temporary Work Often the Gateway to Full-Time Employment

Florida Today (FL) (01/01/12) Peterson, Patrick

According to the American Staffing Association, 74% of job seekers look for full-time employment by first working as temporary employees. Also, 72% of temporary employees surveyed by ASA corporate partner said they found permanent jobs with the employer with which they initially performed temporary work.

“What we have seen is that those positions lead to full-time roles,” says Bill Peppler, managing partner at Kavaliro Staffing Services in central Florida. Surveys show that temporary positions lead to a full-time job nearly three-fourths of the time. “The first people they go to are the people who have worked for them in the past,” Peppler adds.
