I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. "How should I list contract to hire positions on LinkedIn," someone wrote to me asking. You know, "I started off on a contract to hire and then got converted to full time. How should I show that on LinkedIn?" I think this is also true of your resume as well.

Here's what I want you to do. On LinkedIn, when you're putting in a new job, I want you to aggregate the dates of the full time position and the contract to hire period. Then, once you have that, and you're putting in all the data about the the current employer, your title, and what have you, the first line of text in the body of the description of your work would start off by saying, "initially hired on a contract to hire basis and was converted to full time staff on . . . " and then you list when you converted. That simple.

And the rest is your typical information about what you did, how you went about doing it.
