I got my next gig. This one ends Friday, next one starts Monday. Woulda been nice if there was a manageable gap, but oh well.
I’m a W2 employee for a consultant vendor. Often times, when you start a new gig you switch consultant vendors, because when you are in the market you may have a few showing your resume around town. But my current vendor got the job done, and got me sold, so I stay. Which is good, long stretches of continuity are good.
I had updated my resume on Dice, which makes the phone ring from new vendors. Also, updated LinkedIn. Was actively looking for ten days. Went out for 1 interview, and bagged that. Interviewing is a skill. As a younger man, I’d go on10-15 interviews before nabbing a gig. …experience….
On the ‘gig economy’
Ya know, business is good for me, its OK. Re the article above, I don’t think IT consultants have difficulty getting unemployment when they furlough off an assignment. I have gotten it. Two big insecurities are PTO, which I don’t get. And retirement, as you never are with anyone long enough for matching contributions to vest.
I don’t know how I will blog next week, as the way I write now seems out of the question for at least a time. But I’m not giving it up.
