The other day, my old employer contacted me to offer me a four month temp contract. I said “Thanks, but no thanks”. Later that night, I was looking on Indeed and noticed a whole bunch of 4 month contracts now. It used to be 6 months plus. What the heck is up with four month temp contract now? How in the world does an employer expect you to come in there, learn the job perfect-fully and complete the project in four months? Better yet, who would want to put that on their resume? Four months isn’t even enough time to get your butt warm in the chair. Seriously, that’s insane and I hope no one takes these jobs. They may promise to extend those contracts or convert them to full time, but anyone who has worked one of jobs knows that’s a lie.

If you are working on a contractual basis I suppose that 4 months could make sense, but of course, as you mentioned Susan Walker long term positions always look much better on a resume!
