so in chatting with the recruiter contact i find out before i hear from whom i report to, my last day is scheduled for 10/31/2018.

is it the norm to find out ones last day from the manager and 5+ weeks beforehand from the recruiting company?

i'll somewhat approach whom i work with to see if this can be made a ft opportunity, as they may end up with the same position (workload wise) they were last december.

ugh.....any ideas/pointers and/or suggestaionments?:sm ack:

Not sure about the tactics, but such a notice (of ~ 5 weeks) is gracious and generous compared to the same-day approach. You've got a good amount of time to plan and prepare. Be thankful.

Didn't you know how long your contract was for when you signed on?

Agree with the others. You should have known the contract dates at the beginning and a 5 week lead time is very generous.

5 weeks is a lot of notice. I was given 2 weeks notice on my last job which was a contract position that lasted for over a year - the contract was extended a number of times so the end date was not really firm, and letting me go with 2 weeks notice was in the scope of the contract.

I too was hoping for FT, but that was delusional thinking on my part. If they have not hired you on yet, and they are giving you notice of termination, your 100% effort should be put into landing a position at another company.

well when i started back in 12/2017 it was mainly for year end and up until ~3/2018....but well they extended....and did so several times...maybe i was lucky in that dept, not being idle at home and all....but finding out from the recruiter via casual conversation not from whom I have been working with (i.e. Asst. Director of Finance) is what threw me off.

anywhoots, was good 11 months while it lasted. cheeee!!!
