First off I'd like to thank everyone for being so supportive as I trot off to job interviews, network, etc. Call me crazy for not wanting to chill and enjoy a little break in the summer but I just can't sit idle. So, here's the latest...which would you choose? I'm starting with "job #3" as I already did a post awhile back with jobs #1 and #2 (both which didn't pan out and not a huge disappointment...) OK, here goes! Job #3: Contract/consulting assignment of 6 months with option to get on fulltime, slight pay cut from my past job but a nice $$ amount, reasonable commute, represented by my past contract/consulting agency who is great, job is in a strong alignment with my past experience! I interviewed in person last Friday and am awaiting a yes/no as soon as today! Interview went great! Job #4: Fulltime employment back at the company I used to contract with up till recently. Completely different group and physical location, however. I have an onsite interview there tomorrow afternoon. Reasonable commute. Cons: about a 35% paycut from what I am making as a contractor, but there is a good bonus plan. Job #5: Just got a call about this today. Contracting gig with a different agency than I have been working with but I would be assigned at the SAME company as job #4...and, if this makes any sense, likely with some of the same group I used to work with and just got cut from . I'm not sure I can even return and contract after such a short break, nor frankly am I sure I would even want to. I don't think I burned any bridges, but it got awfully tense the last couple weeks. Let's just say I am super hopeful for Job #3. Any thoughts?
