More than half (57%) of IT employers want to transition their current contract staff to full time.
What are the upsides of such a move and what should you consider before making your decision?
According to our Tech Talent Guide survey results, 57 per cent of respondents say they would like to transition their current contract staff to full time, with almost half of that group specifically looking for developers to make the move.
Should you consider the move?
The main reason to transition to full time from contract work is for the longer term career opportunities. If your career ambitions include reaching senior management, VP, or C-suite levels then at some point you will need to change to a fulltime position to get the necessary experience
Our results show that 41 percent of employer respondents having a formal succession plan for their IT staff, showing that many employers are looking for IT staff that not only can deliver on the initial project, but support the business’ long-term growth plans.
Look for opportunities with clear career path options, and consider what other benefits could be available. Health benefits, vacation days, flexible work options, and other employer offerings could help support a work/life balance and lifestyle that will make going full-time the best decision in the short as well as long-term.
