Another extension

 I use around 3 or 4 recruiters to get me new contracts and it's been surprisingly quiet over the last couple of months in what would normally be a pretty busy period.  I've been looking for a 6 weeks now and i'd usually get a least an interview somewhere, but nothing.  There was one role I went for which was validating a syndicate's capital model.  It was working for the same managing agency as i'd worked previously and did two of they're syndicates.  This was just for one.  I did well there and got two extensions and I was about to get another longer one but then the budget fell through.  I didn't even get an interview.  I have heard some things about the company recently and when I looked at linkedin about my ex colleagues, none of the senior ones I dealt with were still there.  Maybe I dodged a bullet.

Anyway, this morning i've been offered another month extension so have accepted.  Just need to get the paperwork through.  If I manage to stay till July i'll get a £3k bonus for doing the virtually nothing towards a huge project the company has been working on.

I like it here, but can earn more elsewhere if the right role comes along.  At least that's another decent wack in my pension.
