    If you struggle this badly with simple stuff I'd just forget the contract interview and go for the permie one in pray like bloody mad you get it. The complicated life is just not for you.

    Default Contractor to Permie

    I am still fairly new to contracting. Come on guys I'm sure a lot of people have been in similar positions. Just looking for previous experiences and recommendations.

    Keep going for interviews until you actually get a job.


    Also, don't waste your time contemplating what decision you might have to make if you get two offers on the table.


    What if you don't get offered the permie role?
    What if the permie role offer is a lot different to what you've been told?
    What if you don't bother going for an interview for the contract role?


    Don't make decisions (or spend your life worrying) about things that might never happen.

    This is really only a question you can answer if you get offered both, depending on your mindset and personal circumstances. Do you want the security (if such a thing exists) and the opportunity to upskill / career progression etc of a perm role, but trade off with all the crap that goes with it? Or do you want the freedom and extra cash that a contract brings, but happy to accept the uncertainty that it can be canned with immediate effect if the client can get the job done cheaper elsewhere?
