You know, your cat, cobra, camel, downward dog, cow face, pigeon, and tortoise poses.
All real names of various stretches, by the way…
Like your job search, are you being flexible in hearing about new opportunities, although it may not be exactly what you’re looking for?
This past week, a success story was shared, where the Salesforce professional was looking for a full time position, but instead was presented an opportunity that was contract to hire.
Rather than saying, no thanks, he went through the interview process.
He did so well, the company decided not to risk losing him by bringing him as a contractor, and hire him full time on day 1 instead.
Sometimes a position stated as a contract to hire may turn into a straight hire, or a conversion within a short period of time.
You may want to ask about this at the 1st stage of the interview and to find out more about why it’s set up as a contract to hire.
It could turn into a much more promising situation than originally planned.
I suggest to stay flexible to hear it out.
OK, I’m off to practice my firefly…
