[News] End of Contract ... again

The Holy Grail, permanent work, remains elusive. I have good KSAs (Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes) but employers seem only interested in having me around for a few weeks ... maybe it's my deodorant / mouthwash / politics / religion ...

A couple of times it's been suggested I try out writing for a living. What do I live on in the meantime? Others have suggested getting a heavy-rigid licence and signing up to be a bus driver. That's tempting, and it may leave time to write. But it also means stepping into the twilight between an IT career and "something else."

So Monday it's climb back into the suit, catch the bus into town, and go door to door, employment agency to employment agency, saying, "Hey, remember me? I'm looking for a job (again.)"

Maybe it's your attitude that needs some work, did you ask for feedback each time you have been terminated?

I know a lot of people who have been on long term contracts and have no problems.
