My current contract job runs out tomorrow. It originally was "temp to possibly hire", but the company put a "no new hires" policy in a couple months after I started, and they have an arbitrary 18-month limit on contracts, so out I go. I could be called back in six months under that policy.
Last week, out of the blue, the temp agency called me with a possibility. I had a phone interview, and last Monday, a face-to-face. Went well.
Yesterday, I got a call - they want me to start Tuesday, and I get a nominal raise. Got to go in Friday for the piss test and to fill out paperwork. It will be about ten miles further to drive - there's a pretty good shortcut so I won't have to drive through downtown Rockford every day.
And here I was thinking I would have to suck off the UI tit for a month or two before finding a new job...
