    Crying is cathartic. No shame in that.

    I'd rather die in a ditch.

    I thought the same thing a few months back and made my own "Die in a ditch" decision. Nobody told me it would be so ditchy and die-y. Just between the two of us, dying in a ditch really sucks.

    Agencies will not show you any contract role if you give them even a hint that you might go perm as they have loads of those to fill and make more profit.

    Yeah but contracts are so easy it's barely any work for them. I get that they'll use the desirable contract roles to source candidates for perm jobs but it's not the same candidates they're putting forward for their contracts. If you say no to perm they probably won't even submit you for the contract role.

    There is that group too. Bait and switch. They will tell you about this great contract they have and then after talks with the client they'll say they actually want perm and are happy to take you on.
    Had those time wasters in the past but now are all blocked.
