    Im going permie....

    Well, finally got the foot in the door with an Asset Management and Investment Banking outfit... heard today they will wait the two months for me to finish my current contract, then I start with .Net 2 and training.... talk of making me a team leader / architect in the near term.... great salary, pension, shares, casual dress code, 5 minute walk from my new flat.

    Happy Easter to all

      Ta. Ive always made career decisions based on the best opportunity available - and this means no more 6.30 am wake ups, I can walk home for lunch, or go to one of the many top bars and restaurants there... dont have to wear a suit... and the money is comperable to contracting here at the moment.

      Well, time will tell....

            Never say never !

            Never say never, so if the right opportunity comes along, why not ? And why wait until there aren't enough contracts to go round and then find out that you have to compete with three times as many good candidates for any decent jobs. Timing is the essence mate and looks like you've timed it well. However, as we know there are no 'permanent' jobs anyway, so my advice is treat it as a contract, put an extra hour or so at least in the beginning, show that you are 'hungry' and eager to climb the ladder and you'll go far. Best of luck.

              Well I am definitely going soft in my old age. A permie job has come up about 10 mins drive from home and I'm seriously considering it. I fancy a quiet life for a bit.

                just out of interest...

                why do people in investment banking always say in their first sentence they're in investment banking, while everybody in other sectors (pharms, hedge funds, telcos etc) keeps schtumm?

                    Because the extra 30% - 40% on your salary means you can treat posters like Jabberwocky with the contempt they deserve.... while posting from a 3G PDA that costs close to a grand in the back of taxi on the way back from satisfying your student nurse GF....
