You didn't state that on your 1st thread. If i was in your position, i would have been interviewing in November. You are a TEMP nothing else or more. They don't have to hire you after the temp period. Also, what kind of job is this? Is it one where the work is slow in the beginning of the year? Use this job as a stepping stone to something greater.

Also consider getting paid for the work.
I am getting paid. Why does everyone assume interns don't get paid? I've never had to take an unpaid internship.

It used to be the case that most internships were unpaid (some industries were exceptions). That is the way it was in my day. Now they're mostly paid due to rulings by the courts.

So by lying and claiming you're looking elsewhere he's going to want to hire you MORE?
