    Electronics job opening

    Hello,
    My employment contract as an electronics engineer has been changed...i am now on a max 6 month contract...and my pay has been reduced by 25%...and this is because they only now have me here to be ready to hand over to the next engineer....but they seem to be taking time to get the next guy in.....how can i hurry them up so i can go quicker?

    Re: Electronics job opening

    Perhaps this demotion of your contract need not be taken personally? Perhaps it's a move for the business to stay afloat?
    Do you get the feeling your bosses expect the business to fail in the next six months?
    Did your coworkers have their contracts demoted too? Is everyone's paycheck up to date?

    If you stick around it's likely for the bosses to ask you to train the following guy. Let them take their time hiring one, in hopes he'll be qualified for the job and will not cause you to tear your hair out.

    However if I were to read between the lines of the way they demoted your contract, it indicates they would not mind if you leave now. They may even hope you'll give them a reason to fire you. So if you already have another place you can go to work, you might as well go (unless you believe early departure would result in a bad reference).

    It helps if you avoid doing anything that will get you a bad reference.
