I can strongly relate to Bonnie's post. I got started here with an
90-day internship almost two years ago. The internship concluded, I was
offered a five-month contract, then a six-month extension. Halfway
through the six-month extension I was offered a full-time position.

Dick made an excellent point in doing anything in the meantime. After
all, it is easier to find a job, when you have a job.

Good luck.

On a side note, I had a lengthy job search that included one position I
was selected for getting frozen, another one where the initial head
count went from 4 to 6, and numerous others ranging from one end of the
APPLICATION DENIED spectrum to the other.

Oddly enough, I was on my way back home from accepting a job to do
custom cutting (That is driving a combine) working from Oklahoma to
Canada when I got the call that I was selected for the 90-dayer I
mentioned earlier. Talk about timing!
