Hey all, I need some of that world famous tPF love and support . A few of you know I just started a new job in early October. It's barely been 60 days, and my contract was for 6 months. Well, due to a few budget snafus, I'm probably out of a job on Dec 15th, as much as they would like to keep me through next August. I'm a contractor, so neither they nor my agency owe me anything. If I don't work, I don't get paid, plain and simple. I don't get paid for being 'benched,' no matter the reason why. Of course I knew this and the risks going into this type of engagement but sheesh, it's a little hard to swallow getting a new project handed to you and then in the SAME session by the SAME mgr getting told you might get the boot in 10 days? Anyway, I guess this is how it goes. I've been around the block so I'll be OK but am . I made the committment to give THEM 6 months of my tried and true hard work, but they can't commit in turn. BF and I are going to FL for 5 days later this week. You bet I'm going to make the most of it...and already have some job feelers out there . No fun job hunting at Christmas time. Anyone been through something similar?
