Temp-to-Hire positions are positions which start out as contract assignments, and after a pre-determined amount of time, become permanent positions with NSTAR’s client company. While on your temporary assignment, you will receive all the benefits listed above in the Contract positions section. Once you switch over, and become a permanent employee of the client company, you will be eligible for all benefits provided by that company. Temp-to-Hire positions are a great way to get your foot in the door of leading companies around the world. These companies often do not hire permanent employees directly, without first testing their technical aptitude, communication skills, and ability to work in teams.
