Contract Job Extended

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Must be time for a blog ! LOL

Well, I had some good news last week. The company I've been doing contract work has extended my contract until the end of the year. They think I've been doing a fantastic job and have more work for me to do. When I asked if there was a possibility of a permanent position, they were honest. They said that there isn't any money in the budget for a full time employee. However, this could change by the end of the year because budgets are being planned now.

This is what happened the last time I was laid off. My contract kept getting extended until a position opened. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this happens again. In the meantime, I will still be applying to jobs looking for something permanent. And I told them that. I really appreciate that they think I do a great job, but like many people, I'd like a job with benefits. It's nice having Labor Day off, but I wont be paid. I'll lose a day of pay. You get used to that working contract. It is what it is.

How's the job search been going ? not so good. Which is another reason I was relieved that my contract was extended. I've applied to several positions in the past few weeks and not a peep. My last interview was in July. Summer is always a bad time to look for work. There are too many unemployed people fighting over too few jobs. When Fall starts, things should improve. For now, yes, I am grateful that I am still working.

Will keep you posted. Other than that, nothing interesting going on. That's why I rarely blog. If I blogged every day, you'd find out how boring my life really is ! LOL.

    That's great news. (Sorry I only just read your blog.) Great that they think a lot of you so at very least they'd give you a great reference. But hopefully they'll be able to make you permanent after Christmas.

    I am glad to hear this! And we can always hope and pray that the money can be found for the new years budget! I think they might be hopeful the money will be made available and they could keep you! That's a real possibility...and how often is a company able to see just all you do and know for sure they are getting
    a great employee.
    Wishing you the best!
    Love,
