I've been doing contract work on and off for awhile now, it's OK as long as it keep coming. Been off for two months now with nothing, so really want to get some work.
Offered a 3 month gig at Acme which originally was 5 when I appiled, starting next week. Have a second interview with Widgets Co. for a 9 month contract.
9 months is much better than 3, and both jobs are similar, Acme is more project-focused, Widgets is more like a HelpDesk role, which they previously had someone working for several years.
So, if go on interview and Widgets offers me job, how bad is it to quit Acme a day in? Problem with contracts is burning both company and placement firm, but also they have to realize we're going to go for the best deal. I wouldn't consider it normally, but 9 months is a long time compared to what I've gotten lately.
If sigs were still a thing this would be mine.
