I come across several jobs in IT in my skills area where companies are offering 6 month contracts. These are large MNCs mind you. Needless to say, I am not applying for them as long as I have my job.
Its not like 1 or 2 but almost 50% of the openings I come across are such short term, possible of renewal kind of contracts. I am wondering if these companies really able to get the kind of people they want, considering most talented people here are on work passes and no one is going to take a chance with such short term contracts.
Another thing I notice here is many positions here remain open for so long. I mean I interview for a company and I dont hear back for like 1 month and then one fine day I get a call for the next round. I wonder how these companies do their business
