I'm currently on a job hunt and got contacted by a recruiter and asked if I'd like to consider an opportunity to work with one of the biggest companies in our country. However, it's only a 3-month contract (I know it's really short!). I'm not really looking for a short-term contract, however as I want to grab this opportunity because I'm still looking into the possibility that I might have a permanent job with them in the future - given that this is a great opportunity for me to begin with.
A little background on my work experience: my last position was on Client Servicing side in an agency and this 3-month contract will be a Brand Consultant which will be now on a client side.
- If they start asking "why are you considering this temporary job though you're resume shows you never had temporary job before" or "what are you going to do after your contract expires?" what should I tell them? I don't want to show that I'm just here for the sake of having a job, but I just want to take the risk that I might get a permanent job with them in the future and build my career with them + the position is a good start for me.
- If I got accepted in this short-term contract, ended it and got no renewal nor permanent position, will it look like I'm job-hopping if I listed this on my resume?
P.S.: I've read this already however we have different situations as I'm not intentionally seeking for temporary positions as of the moment nor waiting any job offer in the next few months.
