well, this is how it goes in the contracting world, and now I'm seeing it firsthand. I was due to finish in mid August but got the call today that my gig is up now. Yeah, it's only a few weeks, but I had to find out after hours via a phone call from my agency rather than firsthand from my onsite management. Too cowardly...no one onsite said hey we decided to end your gig early, thanks but you can go home now. Is that too much to expect? Instead they avoided me all day and I had to hear it through a phone call from my agency...my account manager was pretty surprised I didn't already know before he called me. Hello, awkward! But you know what? I've already got feelers out and will find something soon I'm sure. Job hunter is now my fulltime job. AND, I get to sleep in tomorrow . Cheers!
