New Job!.... sorta


Recommended Posts

So, you all know I lost my job with the energy company almost exactly a year ago. Then Covid hit and jobs became scarce. I got a contracting job in June with a local government as their Project Manager and also acting as Director of I.T.

Well, Friday (tomorrow), my contract is officially up.  My boss has decided to extend my contract by 30 days and then January 11th, hired me as a direct employee. I'll be getting a 5-digit raise to come on plus my health insurance costs will drop by about $4700 a year.  We're still figuring out the title, but at the moment Director of Special Projects is most likely. 

I really enjoy working there and I'm happy to have this whole thing settled.

Congratulations Drew, that is awesome!!!

I agree with you that being contract and up in the air about job security especially during this pandemic sucks.

Stay safe and all the best for the future of your Job! :D
