We're still anxiously seeking good candidates for our job opening in Ann Arbor, MI. The talent drain out of SE Michigan has been pretty astonishing; with the national unemployment rate what it is I feel like most hiring managers are swimming in CVs, and we're barely getting any.

What's the general opinion of contract-to-hire recruiter jobs? This guy wants me to interview with a large well-established group so I have no reason to be suspect, but the 6 month contract-to-hire thing is strange to me.

Mierdaan
Sep 14, 2004



Pillbug

Thanks guys. Do you think the contract-to-FTE conversion ratio depends a lot on the job? In Kyrosiris's example, I could see that happening more if the purpose of the 6-month contract is to bang out a specific set of tasks, and then they pull the rug after. The one I'm looking at seems like it'd be a stable infrastructure job that they'd need long term, but what do I know

Health care is something I just discussed with the recruiter, they said they can bridge that 6-month gap but I'm sure the cost will be ridiculous. COBRA's another (unattractive) option.

Pillbug

Yeah, thanks for the perspective. I'll do the song and dance and see where it goes. The gig is with a large university that I graduated from and worked for previously, so I'd like to think they wouldn't pull the rug after 6 months, but I'll walk into it all with a healthy dose of skepticism.

  • Requires experience selecting, installing and maintaining enterprise storage solutions (SAN/NAS, FC/iSCS/NFS).
  • 3-5 years administering enterprise virtualization technology, e.g. (e.g. VMware, Hyper-V, RHEV, OpenStack)
