It is safe to say that the world has changed both in our personal and work lives. Being able to adapt to change is the key to surviving the unknown. So, as a career professional, what do you do when life throws you those lemons? That’s right! You make lemonade.
Old myths about contract staffing
Typically, there are two types of professionals: those that join a company for a full-time job – with benefits and perks, and contractors. For professionals who have never worked as a contractor, the thought could be daunting and may seem like a step backward. We are programmed by society to believe that the only way to get ahead is to find a company, settle in, and in the past, retire. But that mindset is dated. Retiring these days from a company after 30 years is not realistic, which brings us to the plethora of benefits from contract staffing.
Companies benefit, too!
Like job seekers, companies can benefit highly from partnering with a contract staffing agency, such as JSG. As a company, you can leverage talent in your Finance and IT Departments and more! Companies in the past have opted to hire people on a contract basis for short-term projects, interim situations, or to cover someone who may be on a leave of absence. Hiring an employee on a contract basis allows both the employer and the employee to decide if they are going to “click.” Contract staffing solutions are ideal for the company, especially as employers ramp up their hiring efforts.
It is competitive out there! Johnson Search Group has put many people to work on a contract basis, and we can help you find a new opportunity.
