End of contract


So, I've been at this position since 2008, and the basic rule has shifted slightly.
Originally, contractors could work at Intel for 12 months, then had to stay away for x months, where x was either 12 or 6 depending on some random combination of things.

They've been trying to get a req so I could be hired full-time. That hasn't been successful.

And my manager Scott has been unable to get me continued past August, even though the need is there, the group is already understaffed, and they have no extra leeway.

So I'm back on the job market at the end of August.

So very much NOT looking forward to this.
My current employers might be able to find something for me, I'm not sure yet.

Erk. Best of luck with the job search. You might want to get an account on LinkedIn, if you haven't already.

Get as much of the medical stuff done before the contract is up and hopefully contractors get COBRA.

I plan to, and I could do COBRA but hopefully won't have to do so. Azad is a very good and very proactive company.

Ding-dang this stupid economy. How do the other countries for whom this level of unemployment is a permanent reality instead of a temporary crash deal with it on a daily basis?

Most of them are places where the "nuclearization" of families has not happened to the extent it has in the USA, Canada, and places like this. Most of them are places where they aren't importing allegedly illegal aliens from adjacent countries with significantly lower economies, for the low-end unskilled or valued-but-underpaid virtual slave labor jobs, while exporting the skilled labor jobs to slave labor camps in China or to countries where the temporary difference in the monetary scales and relatively high education levels allows skilled labor at a distance.
