My 6 month contract is about to be up. I love it here, but need the benefits of a full time job. I know they plan on extending my contract, but I need it to be full time or I’ll have to start looking

@Graphic Designer, check your state laws. In NY if you FL somewhere for 6-mo at full time hours they have to offer you benefits by law

Agree with Account Director 1. Tell them exactly what you need. If they can’t offer you full time with benefits, then take the job for the paycheck but start looking and applying for full-time gigs elsewhere. If you have a good relationship with the people you currently work with, be honest about your search too. Most people understand that finding a full time position is important and will want to help you find one, even if it’s not for their company

So you have the possibility to be booked on a project for an entire year, and you’re choosing to leave it so you can be unemployed? That doesn’t make sense. Take the gg and look for full time while you’re there. The promise of 6 more months of a paycheck guaranteed is more than most of us have.

For a new job. How should I have this conversation with my boss? I don’t want to leave here but I can’t wait another 6 months. When I started they basically told me it would turn full time when my contract is up.

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected.

Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
