Impressions of agencies and professional services, from the other side

I spent a majority of my professional career working in professional service agencies. Now that I am working with professional service agencies from the perspective of the organization REQUESTING the professional service, I have a lot of perspective.

What I wish I knew about contract to hire

Have you never done a contract-to-hire position before? I had never heard of it before, but when I quit my last job earlier this year (2022) and started looking around, I saw this type of role all over the place.

I just recently accepted an offer for a full-time, salaried position at a job in which I started as a contract-to-hire for six months.

This is what I learned.
