An Accountemps news release said some 38% like the tryout option because it gave them the most information about judging the available candidates for a financial position.
Some 17% said a reference check was the a key recruiting tool while 6% said an ordinary resume and cover letter did the trick for them.
“In today’s economic environment, employers are taking extra measures to minimize the risk of making bad hiring decisions,” said Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps. “Temporary and project assignments provide the opportunity for companies to observe firsthand an individual’s skills, performance and fit for the position before extending a full-time offer.”
