Should I use DMS if I really want a permanent position?

If you are searching for a permanent job, you might wonder why we would encourage you to experience a temporary posting while looking for the right permanent position. 

There are several good reasons to take a temporary placement. By placing you in a temporary job opportunity, DMS gives you the opportunity to gain valuable and diverse work experience, build key skills, and establish professional contacts.  This will help you build your resume and your skills and give you an extra edge in the search for that perfect permanent position.

Also, a temporary-to-permanent experience allows you to "try-out" a company before receiving a full-time employment offer. This ensures that you are happy and comfortable in the new workplace. Almost 70% of our placements have the opportunity to become temp-to-permanent.
