Can a Seasonal Position Turn into a Full-Time Job?

There are many reasons why you might take on a seasonal position. Maybe you desire short-term work to pay off debt or save for a goal. Or, perhaps you want to earn income without fully committing to a company.

If you decide you like the work and the employer, you may be able to turn your seasonal position into a full-time job.

  • Working in a seasonal position helps you gain experience with an organization.
  • Investing 2-4 months with the company typically is long enough to determine whether you want to remain long-term.
  • You can network with colleagues, coworkers, managers, HR staff, and other leaders who may impact whether you receive a job offer.

Holding a seasonal position helps develop the skills and experience required for a full-time job with the business.

  • The hiring manager can evaluate your work performance, the company’s needs, and the budget.
  • The manager can determine whether to offer you a full-time job.
  • Having completed onboarding and training is in your favor.

Implement these tips to potentially turn a seasonal position into a full-time job.
